LG and YouTube Are Bringing A New Era of True 3D Mobile Experience
           
Barcelona, Feb. 14, 2011 -- LG Electronics (LG) and YouTube are taking a major step forward today by announcing a partnership to provide a unique 3D mobile experience to users. LG’s upcoming Android-powered premium smartphones will enable users not only to capture and view 3D videos without glasses, but also to upload and share them instantly with others via YouTube.

“The Optimus 3D is LG’s newest flagship smartphone. It is our answer to two major pain points of the current 3D experience - limited mobility and specialized glasses. Furthermore, our partnership with YouTube will ensure that our customers can easily generate and access ample 3D content,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

The new partnership is part of a broader push into 3D entertainment by LG and the world’s largest online video community. YouTube and LG collaborated to enable the delivery and sharing of 3D video onto mobile devices in a way that makes it simple and easy for consumers.

“3D technology has traditionally been reserved for the major Hollywood movie studios,” said Francsico Varela, Head of YouTube Platform Partnerships“With the new LG Optimus 3D anyone anywhere in the world can shoot 3D videos, upload them to YouTube and share them with their friends. We’re excited to see the creative videos our community captures and shares with this new technology.”

Powered by a unique “Tri-Dual” Configuration -- dual-core, simultaneous dual-channel and dual-memory, LG’s advanced Optimus 3D will be unveiled at the 2011 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and will be the first mobile device capable of providing the YouTube 3D experience. The Android-powered Optimus 3D will be available globally starting in Europe early in the second quarter of 2011.

LG and YouTube team up to bring a full 3D experience to mobile devices

What's the point of 3D on a phone? What can be accomplished with 3D that can't be with 2D? It seems like a waste of resources to me.

Is this going to be like the fingerless game from kongregate 3D or is it something more advanced. Anyway I still think that it's a cool concept. Like a front facing camera not really necessary but really nice to have, to show off to friends and gives a full experience. Definitely looking toward to owning a LG phone or tablet so far. What you got HTC, I'm a big fan who's waiting to be blown away after some disappointments!

I can barely watch a sd video on youtube using my 60/6 line without buffering every 10 seconds. Forget a 720p or 1080 video. They want me to expect 3d youtube video on my phone? Lets get the desktop site stable first.
