Another 3D handset makes it’s way for approval by Uncle Sam. The LG Optimus 3D, which is being tested for GSM as well as T-Mobile’s WCDMA bands, looks to be taking a sure path to coming to the US Market. The bands being tested include GSM bands 850 and 1900, and WCDMA bands 1700 and 1900. But with the AT&T-Mobile merger looming, what fate will it hold for LGs 3D phone?
No word on when the Optimus 3D will be officially available at T-Mobile, or if it will ever come since things will be in flux until the FCC makes a decision on the merger. However, fans of the Optimus 3D can get their hands on and unlocked model through independent cell phone importers. It’ll be GSM and cost a pretty penny (about $700), but if T-Mobile fans are hoping to get one now, rather than wait to see the ultimate fate of AT&T-Mobile or the LG OPtimus 3D’s arrival, it’s doable.
The LG Optimus 3D comes with a 4.3″ 3D screen with 480 x 800 resolution. Not exactly HD, but with 3D you usually take a resolution hit. It’s powered by a 1 Ghz dual-core processor and has 8GB internal memory and 4GB RAM. The Optimus 3D has a 5MP camera that’s capable of shooting 1080p full HD or 720p 3D video. All the other standards including HDMI and DLNA support are included.[via Wireless Goodness]
