While Carphone Warehouse officially put the LG Optimus 3D on sale yesterday, the handset has been available on preorder from a number of online mobile phone retailers for a few weeks already.
The cheapest deal that we found online was on T-Mobile, courtesy of buymobilephones.net, which offers the device with 600 minutes, 500 texts and unlimited internet for £25.12 per month, which adds up to a total cost of ownership of £602 over the duration of the two year contract.
The main selling point of the LG Optimus 3D is the fact that it can capture and display 3D content. It has two five-megapixel rear cameras that can capture still and movies pictures at 720p HD resolution.
The screen, a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive display one, allows the user to watch the content in 3D without the use of any glasses. In addition, the content can be displayed on any 3D compatible peripheral (projector, monitor, television) thanks to DLNA compatibility and HDMI output.
The rest of the phone's configuration is pretty standard: it has a dual core TI OMAP4 SoC clocked at 1GHz, 512MB RAM, 8GB onboard storage, Wi-Fi, GPS, a microSD card slot and disappointingly Android OS 2.2 (although Gingerbread will be available later this year).
