A 3D touchscreen on a smartphone? Oh, why not. They're putting it on everything else these days. So that's what's been done with the Sharp Galapogos. It's an Android 2.2 device with a 3.8-inch touchscreen and what's being called "Naked Eye 3D."

With the press of a button, the home screen changes to a 3D-like feel, without the need of those glasses. It's an interesting parlor trick, but not something we'd want to really use, most likely.

slow phone, nice 3D effect, speed it up with an updated OS and come to the US and on Verizon I would consider it...in other words, Bionic, here I come!

I could see a 3DS-like 3D effect on future cell phones.

icebike says:

But is it just a wallpaper effect, or is there actually any difference in the screen?

patrixl says:

It actually is 3D, look at my review here of the Sharp Lynx 3D (Galapagos under another carrier in Japan)

I just want a 22" tv that has 3D without glasses

Sharp makes horrible TVs...

Just saying...

Sharp (I believe) is behind the 3D screen that the Nintendo 3DS is going to use so it's not surprising to see them using it for their own devices.
