LG are to unveil two glasses-less 3D devices at the Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona next week – an Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet likely to be known as the G-Slate, and a 3D display smart phone called the LG Optimus.
They are not the first to introduce glasses-less 3D to a mobile device, but are the first to introduce one with such a large touchscreen display, reaching 8.9 inches in the G-Slate. This is considerably larger than its younger brother, the 3D Optimus, and Nintendo’s 3DS.
Set to launch in the US in March, it will hold a Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, making it one of the most powerful tablets on the market so far. 32GB of onboard storage guarentees plenty of space for music as well as movies to be viewed on its high resolution display. A five megapixel 3D camera is also included which is capable of taking HD and 3D video.
No UK release date is yet to be set, likely due to the lack of a 4G network in Britain, which T-Mobile have announced will be supported by the G-Slate. The official unveiling at MWB 2011 on February 14th should reveal full specifications.
