Sony Ericsson toying with tabletphone
3D handset in sight, apparently
Sony Ericsson is developing a glasses-free 3D handset, rumoured to integrate the tablet and smartphone into a 4.7in hybrid.
The whispers come by way of Androidandme, that claims Sony Ericsson's secret smartphone will go toe-to-toe with the LG Optimus 3D and HTC Evo 3D. The forthcoming device will apparently handle a 1280x720p resolution on its 4.7in display too.
Sony has already confirmed the S1 and S2 tablets
Details are thin on the ground at the moment, but we'll keep you posted if we hear more. In the meantime, let us know if a 3D smartphone with a 4.7in screen would appeal to you. ®
Well done sir...
well done... I take it they studied the market rejection of the Nintendo 3DS and totally ignored it !!
no to 3D!
stop trying to cram 3D down our throats! why the hell would anyone want 3D on a smartphone anyway? pointless gimmick. hell, i can see sony taking a bath on this one....
"Sony already revealed the S1 and S2 fondleslabs, promising us a "summer of tablets", an event usually associated with those who rave off to Ibiza."
Can't say it really does on a smartphone. It may look cool having your icons stretching into the distance in your phone but unless you can actually reach through your touchscreen, there's naff all point to it. 3D TV on a phone will be distinctly underwhelming, given that it hasnt even taken off on larger screens and given the dearth of decent Android games in 2D, I fail to see many game developers taking advantage of 3D processing power.
3D in the cinema? yes, that I quite enjoy.
I don't think there's really any need for it in the living room though, and certainly not on a phone.
