LG Takes the Wraps Off The 3D Phone

LG has taken the wraps off its 3D phone at Mobile World Congress. The Optimus 3D features an advanced dual-core, dual-channel and dual-memory architecture. LG notes that the device is equipped with a 1GHz OMAP4 dual-core processor and four times more video decoders than competing designs, doubling the graphics performance of its nearest competitor, and allowing users to enjoy superb performance while web surfing, running applications and enjoying multimedia content.

In addition, the LG Optimus 3D provides the world`s first full 3D experience covering the full spectrum from recording to viewing and sharing 3D content. It features a dual-lens camera that enables users to capture any moment in true 3D which can then be viewed immediately on the 4.3-inch WVGA glasses-free display. Multiple connectivity options including HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) and DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) also make it easy for users to transfer their recorded content to other devices.

LG has also unveiled the Optimus Pad, an Android tablet optimized with Honeycomb OS designed to offer the full viewing experience of a tablet while still being easy to hold with one hand. It boasts an 8.9-inch display, 1280 x 768 WXGA resolution widescreen display with15:9 aspect ratio; and Full HD 1080p decoding.

The Optimus Pad runs on a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, and is the world`s first tablet with a built-in 3D camera, enabling users to capture vivid image and video content to be viewed on a high definition 3D TV or shared on the web via YouTube 3D.

“Im confident that this year, LG will emerge as a leader in the next generation of smartphone and tablet devices,” says LG Mobile president and CEO, Dr. Jong-seok Park. “What you see here today is just the beginning. We will continue to innovate with products that address consumer needs and deliver benefits that live up to our Life`s Good commitment.”
