LG to launch world's first 3D smartphone

LG Optimus 3D to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona

LG has announced it will be the first manufacturer to launch a 3D smartphone, the LG Optimus 3D.

Set to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona this month, the LG Optimus 3D will offer a glasses-free LCD panel for 3D viewing, and will also be equipped with a dual-lens camera for 3D video recording.

Although official details have yet to be revealed, the Optimus 3D is likely to run Google's Android operating system. It follows the launch of the original LG Optimus, the LG Optimus One, and the LG Optimus 2X; the latter being the first smartphone to run a dual-core processor for enhanced multimedia, gaming and Web browsing.

Described by LG as its "most advanced smartphone to date", the LG Optimus 3D will also feature HDMI connectivity and DLNA for sharing 3D content.

More details, including launch dates and pricing, will be announced at MWC, which runs 14-17 February.

Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
