Mobile phones, Tech Digest news

LG’s Optimus 3D smartphone is finally ready for public consumption. The partner piece to the company’s 3D Optimus Pad tablet (aka the T-Mobile G Slate), it shoots and play’s back 3D video without the need for clunky glasses.

First revealed back in February at MWC in Barcelona, its 3D screen looks and works in a very simlar way to that of the Nintendo 3DS. Using a “Tri Dual” processor configuration (“dual-core, dual-channel and dual-memory”), its other features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth,USB syncing, GPS, DLNA/HDMI support and 8GB of internal memory, running Android 2.2.

“Tri-Dual architecture opens up a whole new world in smartphone performance,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company. “As the latest offering in our Optimus line-up, we expect there will be significant interest from those who seek the very latest in smartphone technology and are excited about 3D as the next big frontier in mobile devices.”

The phone will be available in Europe first, and then in more than 60 markets around the world over the next few weeks.
