Mobile phones making the shift to 3D

  1. Back at Mobile World Congress in February, LG showed their Optimus 3D. The phone is has a dual core 1GHz TI OMAP 4 cpu and PowerVR SGX540 graphics. Quite a beast. It also has a 3D GUI. Videos can be recorded in 720p 3D as well as camera stillshots. There's gonna be 3D games ready for it and also apps (youtube 3d).

    Next we have the newly announced HTC Evo 3D that was just announced less than an hour ago at CTIA. That device has dual core 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8660 cpu with 3D on/off switch.
  2. I love 3-d and I guess this was the next logical step. Better postpone buying an iphone until they release the iphone 3d, although it'll probably cost a grand.
  3. 3D on a smartphone :rolleyes: Aslong they dont forget to implement the calling function:p
    Btw, dual core 1.2Ghz, to what CPU on pc can you compare that? it seems pretty fast.
  4. 3D on a smartphone makes more sense than anything else right now if you want the truth. On a display or gaming system, you only have a SINGLE function. To watch the content in 3D. On a smartphone, you have multiple uses. The display displays the content in 3D. You can also take pictures and can record video content in 3D and output the 3D content (plus games) to TV as well.

    I'm not sure how the architecture differs from these ARM cpu's to x86 cpu's, but from what I've been seeing, they blow the atom out of the water. Notice these cpu's are now able to playback 1080p video and record/playback 3D 720p video.
  5. Would make sense to ditch the atoms and put those ARM's in netbooks then.
  6. That's pretty much the idea MS has. Windows 8 will support ARM cpu's.
