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.

Hands-on with the Sharp Galapagos -- 3D-like screen on a smartphone?!?

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!

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.
