One of the greatest limitations with current 3D technology is the requirement of glasses to make the effect work. The Nintendo 3DS was a smash hit at E3 this year, and now Sharp is looking to bring the same basic technology to the smartphone. The Sharp Galapagos comes packed with Android 2.2, 512 MB of RAM, and a 3.8-inch screen capable of displaying 3D images and video sans glasses.
The lineup of seven launch games includes the likes of Resident Evil: Degeneration, Mega Man, and Ghosts n' Goblins. The phone will also be able to play 3D movies, which may be the bigger selling point. The phone does not yet have a release date, but we do know it will be launching on carrier Softbank Japan.
