One thing is certain with mobile phone technology; its development could be seen to be infinite, as manufacturers will never run out of new ideas to make the latest handsets work faster and easier to use. Modern Smartphone’s are a prime example of this, packed full with the latest applications, which run on ever more advanced operating systems all with the aim of catching the consumers eye.
There has been one technology banded around mobile phone shops around the world for the last 12 months “3D screen enabled handsets” 12 months ago it was but a rumor but now it is no more! As the future Smartphone will definitely have a 3D User interface added to its already long list of features. Currently LG seem to be the manufacturer with a handset closest to launch.
LG are not giving full package specs but they are pointing out to have improved the cross talk problem (Well, the instant where your neighbor could see everything you type and watch on your phone). The improved parallax barrier is the trick they have used here. But one company that has been tremendous on getting it right on the parallax barrier is the Samsung 3D mobile phones. Wonder if LG will smoke out Samsung on this aspect. Sharp 3D mobile phones also hit the market a while back, and I must say that was a breakthrough for Sharp; they were even buffed up when their 3D idea on Nintendo hit it big in the market.
So 3D mobile phones are what should be on my to-get-list? But I have a problem keeping with the trend; especially when the whole idea of 3D technology on movies and games is yet to settle in my head. The whole Optimus 2x idea has my head in the cloud when my only understanding of Optimus is the autobot superhero in the Transformers movies.
But one thing is certain; to get your hands on 3D mobile phones like the LG Optimus, you will have to spend a lot of money, as all new technology is highly priced when first available. Do not let that put you off though as with all technologies, once 3D handsets have been around for a while the technology will become as common as cameras are in today’s mobiles and the prices on PAYG, sim free and pay monthly contract will fall to more affordable levels.
