This whole 3D madness started from Avatar, which was the first movie to have a 3D version released. Not long time after, televisions took the idea and introduced first 3D TV devices(Samsung, LG, Sony, Panasonic).
Cellphones could not miss this and this year Samsung will release the first 3D phone, called W960.
The 3D phone will have an 3.2-inch AMOLED capacitive touch screen(16 M colors) with WQVGA resolution and will be featuring multitasking and TouchWiz 2.0 user interface. Other features: 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, 3G, DMB-TV-tuner, Bluetooth 2.1 and microSD card slot.
Supported applications: Electronic Dictionary, Calendar, Currency Converter, Notes, Calculator, Alarm Clock, World Clock, Stopwatch, Subway Maps.
The special 3D feature will not need 3D glasses to be seen in action, but to activate it you need to switch on the dedicated 3D shortcut key.
Samsung W960 3D display phone is expected to hit stores from Korea within Q2 of 2010, but an estimated price has not been yet revealed.
