LG Optimus 3D

LG Optimus 3D Officially Launched Today

We have heard plenty about it and knew it was coming for a while, but today LG has officially launched the LG Optimus 3D. Probably in an attempt to beat the HTC EVO 3D to market. Lucky for us we had the Optimus 3D sometime back in May and were able to do a full review and you can read all about that here.

LG Optimus 3D Delayed Until July

In a move that makes us all cry into our collective 3D pillows, several online stores have revealed today that they'll not be able to sell the LG Optimus 3D this month as previously planned. Both Play.com and Clove are amongst these stores revealing the sadness. Clove announced via its official blog that the device will be pushed back until July 11, 2011 specifically and will still cost £455, previously noting that they'd received their stock of the device earlier this month.

LG Optimus 3D Review

Welcome to the tool with which you will enter into a 3D world you never before imagined possible. Its a fantasy land of graphics that pop right down into the device, allowing you to see games and movies and photos like never before! At least that's what the pitch is, right? There's this device and the LG G-Slate out already plus the HTC EVO 3D, all of them joining the 3D bandwagon to see how it fares in the mobile world. We've already reviewed the T-Mobile G-Slate back here, and the HTC EVO 3D isn't quite ready to go yet, now how does the Optimus contender contend? We shall see!

LG Optimus 3D Hands-On and Unboxing

Woo look at this red hot goodness. It's the LG Optimus 3D, an early developer version "intended for engineers" -- take note of that for later. First let me comment on the box for a moment. It's slick. One thing you can say about LG and the rest of the bigtime companies like HTC these days is that they've got their packaging game together. I see this box on a shelf and I instantly want to know what's inside. Turns out what's inside is the world's first "Tri-Dual Technology", that being dual-core, dual-channel, and dual-memory. See how it feels to the hands here and now.

LG P930 a new Android Phone sporting a Retina killing 1280×720 display

What we have here seems to be a few lines in particular that looks a little odd from a LG XML file. They have a few Android phones out or on their way, and they've already released the Optimus Pad aka G-Slate on T-Mobile and that was their first tablet. For now most of the upcoming phones like the LG Revolution all sport the andy standard 800x480 resolution, so could this be a new 4, or 4.5" high-res phone in the works, or possibly a 7" Android 3.1 Honeycomb tablet, we don't know but it looks to have the makings for a phone.

LG Optimus 3D Out in the Wild, on eBay

It looks like more Google I/O gear is making its way on to eBay. I would keep the cool things like that for myself, but that is just me. From what we are hearing, and seeing there is now multiple LG Optimus 3D phones showing up on Ebay and they are listed as "dev" phones. Listed as new in box, and never used. From what we understand LG gave a few of these out to developers from Google I/O at a LG side event, and some are deciding to sell them rather than keep them... or develop for the device.

LG Optimus 3D goes to the FCC

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?

CTIA to showcase new LG Phones

CTIA is adding LG Phones to it's list of breaking news before the wireless confab later this year in Orlando. Although no details are offered, there is hint that along with the LG Revolution, these new phones are finalists for the annual CTIA E-Tech award. Other phones nominated include the Motrola Atrix and the HTC Thunderbolt. And while the identity of the LG phones remains a mystery, the talk is that T-Mobile will be the carrier that launches them.

Why These Two Android Phones will Change Everything

Before we begin, have a look at two phones - one, the LG Optimus 3D, and two, the HTC ChaCha (aka one of the several Facebook phones to reveal themselves in the past 40 or so hours.) Alone, these phones have chances of becoming popular phones for a while, maybe a few months of bigtime sales, then on to the next one, if you take my meaning. But what these two phones being released at relatively the same time means is that the social aspect of mobile has entered the hardware realm.
