    Anyone remember the latest attempted mobile 3D resurgence? It wasn't that long ago; just last summer we Americans saw the release of the Evo 3D as a follow-up device to the best-selling smartphone in Sprint's history. The "Evo" branding marked this device for a premium slot and guaranteed its title as one of the most anticipated phones of 2011 (in the US, anyway). Even though I was deeply invested in another platform at the time and had no real use for 3D, the device piqued my curiosity. Indeed, we pegged 3D as one of the trends of 2011 at last year's MWC, alongside "Android" and the more ...

    First announced back during February's Mobile World Congress, LG's second autosteroscopic 3D smartphone, the Optimus 3D Max, has already made its retail debut in Asia. Since then, we've been waiting to see the phone start spreading out into some additional markets around the globe. The 3D Max is now poised to do just that, with LG announcing today the European launch of the smartphone. The 3D Max is a mostly minor refresh of the original Optimus 3D, but it does make a couple decent improvements. There's not a big change to the phone's processor – a TI OMAP4430 for both versions – but the ...

    Now that smartphone manufacturers have had some time to look at the Ice Cream Sandwich source, we're starting to hear some more detailed estimates of when certain handsets are likely to start receiving their updates to Android 4.0. Just last week, Sony Ericsson talked about its plans to get Ice Cream Sandwich out to its Xperia and Walkman models in early spring. Today it's LG's turn, and the company has taken to Facebook to post its current schedule for Android 4.0 deployment. The first of LG's phones to make the jump to ICS will get their updates sometime in the second quarter of next ...

    We recently learned of LG's plans to deny its dual-core Optimus 2X an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich, a regrettable fate for the smartphone if the news ends up panning-out. Despite that rather large setback, the future isn't entirely dim for Optimus 2X owners; LG just revealed that Gingerbread updates are on the way, not just to the 2X, but for the Optimus 3D and Optimus Black as well. The Optimus 2X will be the first to have its shot at Gingerbread. According to its Facebook page, LG will begin distribution of the update tomorrow, November 1. A few weeks later on, it will be the Optimus ...

    Having an autostereoscopic 3D display on your smartphone may be at the cutting-edge of handset technology, but it's only useful so far as you have 3D content to enjoy. Manufacturers were wise to give 3D phones dual cameras, so you can always record some new 3D video in a pinch, but what if you're looking for some gaming action, instead? Optimus 3D owners will soon have a whole new world of 3D content to explore, with LG just about to release its 3D game converter software. The app is able to take normal 2D Android games and stretch them out into the third dimension. Apps will have to use ...

    The LG Optimus 3D, just like its American brother (the AT&T Thrill 4G), comes with Android 2.2 Froyo out-of-the-box which is really holding back some people from purchasing an otherwise great phone. Some regions will get Gingerbread this month but the firmware which just became available is still Froyo. With a V10K version number, the new Optimus 3D ROM is still Android 2.2 but this time it's got the 3D Game Converter software baked in. That means that the phone will automatically take 2D-games and convert them into 3D, taking advantage of the phone's main selling point: the ...

    Looks like there has been quite a lot of activity in CyanogenMOD-land recently. After announcing the CyanogenMOD ROM for the LG Optimus 7 back at the end of July and teasing it at the beginning of August, the team announced that there's an "early CM7 build for the LG Optimus 3D" available. Additionally, users of the HTC Saga (aka HTC Desire S) have one more reason to rediscover their phones. The first CyanogenMOD Nightly build is out and if you feel brave enough you can give it a go, granted you understand the risks involved and that you're likely to run into a series of bugs, as it is ...

    The first smartphones with autostereoscopic screens first started showing up in Japan last year, and 2011 has seen greatly expanded availability with the release of the LG Optimus 3D and HTC EVO 3D. What's next for these devices? LG's Dr Henry Noh recently took the time to explain his vision for the sequel to the Optimus 3D. Noh thinks that, in a world where it can be hard to make one smartphone stand out from another, 3D devices have a distinct advantage. To translate that advantage into increased sales, however, 3D can't come at too high of a price. For him, that means that he doesn't ...

    The AT&T variant of the LG Optimus 3D, the AT&T Thrill 4G, has had its fair share of launch delays and it could have probably hit the market sooner. The carrier has finally made an announcement regarding the phone's launch date, which is set for September 4. Better being late than never doesn't really apply to the fast-moving tech world of gadgets we live in (also applies to the U.S. variants of the Galaxy S II) but after being introduced in February at MWC, the Optimus 3D will finally make its way into the hands of AT&T customers. There's currently no word regarding pricing but AT&T ...

    There will certainly be a lot of interesting things on display at this week's IFA in Berlin but not all of them will be hardware-related. LG is set to introduce yet another world's first, this time an OpenGL-based 2D to 3D game conversion engine for smartphones. The LG Optimus 3D, the manufacturer's first take at a glasses-free 3D phone, will get a Maintenance Release (MR) this October and the 3D Game Converter will be part of it. The application will allow for a 3D user experience on previously purchased 2D games. There's little work on the software side by the game producers and once a ...

    The LG Optimus 3D was introduced at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona as the manufacturer's first glasses-free 3D phone. It will arrive on AT&T's network as the Thrill 4G and will directly compete with the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint, while the worldwide Optimus 3D will try to lure in customers looking for the HTC EVO – the EVO 3D's international variant. The phone is being marketed as one featuring a tri-dual architecture, which means that it packs three components that are dual: a dual-core processor; second, dual-channel data transport and memory; and dual-memory chips. With this ...
