Electronics goods manufacturer Lucky Goldstar has announced the world’s first 3D mobile phone in the LG Optimus 3D, along with unveiling their Android tablet offering with the LG Optimus Pad.
The Optimus 3D brings to the company’s arsenal a mobile phone that is capable of showing 3D images and video without the need for any glasses, in addition to being able to capture them with its twin lens camera.
LG’s Optimus 3D tips up with a dual-core 1Ghz OMAP4 processor, which is backed by dual-channel and dual-memory architecture that enhances the overall performance of the mobile. As a result of this mighty prowess, the phone is very fast at running all that it has on-board, as we experience first-hand – from 3D images and video capture to running 3D games, where there’s even a 3D UI to the Optimus handset.
The 3D mobile has a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive touch screen, which displays all the 3D material and sans 3D glasses where the LG 3D screens do need those visual accessories. The dual lens 5 megapixel camera captures and records those 3D images up to 720P on video, although 1080p filming is possible in just 2D. All of this is displayable through the microHMI port to a compatible screen, or uploadable to YouTube’s own 3D channel.
The LG Optimus Pad was first announced at Las Vegas’ CES, under the guise of the T-Mobile G Tablet where this 8.9-inch touch screen device is now set to be unbranded and available to all and sundry.
LG’s Optimus Pad is a tablet device that is also powered by dual core, only this time around it’s a 1Ghz Nvida Tegra 2 processor behind the device. The Pad we saw was running from the upcoming Android ‘Homeycomb’ 3.0 OS, which is specifically geared up for tablet devices.
The 8.9-inch screen has a 1280x768 resolution and 15:9 aspect ratio for displaying video, whilst the Optimus Pad has full 1080p video decoding for decent HD playback.
On the back of the device is a dual lens camera, which operates in the same way the LG Optimus 3D mobile for 3D capture – only the Pad can’t display those image natively, but can directly export them to a 3D TV screen.
3D seems to be the theme of this year’s LG agenda at Mobile World Congress, where many would have faulted their optimism of the 3D uptake – until realised the consumer can generate their own 3D content, from the built in camera.
No arrival dates or costs have been set yet for the LG Optimus Pad, but the Optimus 3D will be available in Q2 and with Android ‘Foyo’ 2.2 where Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 will be provided later.
