LG Optimus 3D Launches at Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy

Publish date:

Launching online at carphonewarehouse.com and in 20 Carphone Warehouse stores — as well as four Best Buy stores — across the country from 1st July and nationwide from 6th July, the new LG Optimus 3D has a unique glasses-free 3D screen.

The smartphone will be available from free on a £35/month contract and from £499.95 SIM free exclusively at The Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy.

Equipped with a 5 mega-pixel dual lens camera, the LG Optimus 3D offers users the chance to record and capture their own 2D or 3D videos and images and view them on a high-res 4.3 inch WVGA display screen without the need for glasses. The smartphone also comes with an HDMI port that enables customers to screen their personally recorded videos on a TV or immediately upload and share via a dedicated 3D YouTube channel.

There’s also 8GB of internal memory providing ample space to store 3D games, films and television to play or watch in the palm of your hand, as well as built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or 3G connectivity to allow fast internet use on the go.

The phone runs on the Android operating system (2.2) and uses tri-dual technology (dual-core, dual-channel and dual-memory). The LG Optimus 3D also features a unique 3D hot key, meaning users can access a ‘3D zone’ full of 3D ready apps, videos, and pre-loaded games from Gameloft at the touch of a button.

Graham Stapleton, chief commercial officer at The Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy, said: “It’s safe to say that 3D technology is growing, with more events and entertainment being screened in 3D than ever. The LG Optimus 3D features some ground breaking technology and we’re proud to be able to offer the world’s first 3D smartphone exclusively at The Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy. It is a remarkable piece of technology and I’m confident that our customers will be as impressed and excited as we are.”

Jim Michel, head of mobile at LG, said: “LG is thrilled to launch our first glasses-free, 3D smartphone in the UK. We are delighted about being able to offer this exciting new way to watch 3D movies or play games on a mobile phone to all our customers. LG is passionate about addressing our customer’s needs and delivering the most innovative products on the market and we strive to continue to live up to the Life’s Good commitment.”


LG 3D, and Triple View

Led by a new 3D monitor and a triple view screen, LG showcased its broad range of interactive solutions at the Digital Signage Expo 2008 last week in Las Vegas. “Integrators demand creative signage solutions that not only help attract and engage customers but work within the space they have,” said Ron Snaidauf, vice president, Commercial Products, LG Electronics USA, Inc. “LG’s digital signage offerings not only meet this demand, but also provide new interactive elements that engage your senses, extending the customer experience beyond the point-of-sale.” The first new LG digital signage concept to engage the eyes is the prototype LG “Triple View” 47-inch class* LCD panel, ideal for advertising and engaging multiple consumers at one time.  Customers view three different images or advertisements based upon their angle of view to the monitor. The monitor is “Full HD” capable with a 1080 x 1920 (in
