It was a big week this week with MWC being held at Barcelona with many companies announcing their latest and greatest mobile devices. Most devices has specs that were somwhat expected with upgraded screen sizes, processing power etc.
But to me, one device stood out from the rest. LG Optimus 3D.
This Android 2.3 gingerbread phone had some feaures no other companies had anything close to. Glass-free 3D capable 4.3″ LCD and a dual-lense 3D camera that can record up to 720. (1080p in 2D) It also didn’t skimp on the rest of the specs with a dual-core OMAP4 4430 with a faster clocked SGX540. Anandtech benchmarked it against the other big guns from Motorola, Samsung etc and Optimus 3D came out on top.
UPDATE: Pre-order price at UK onlie store clove.co.uk is 429 GBP pre-VAT. Expected release date is mid-April.
