Following the unveiling of the Optimus 3D yesterday, LG is pushing further to bring the 3D experience to more mobile devices with the help of YouTube.

The two powers are collaborating to "enable the delivery and sharing of 3D video onto mobile devices in a way that makes it simple and easy for consumers."

Basically, that means users can shoot and view 3D clips using the Optimus 3D (and future similar handhelds if this one does well), and then upload them instantly to YouTube's 3D channel.

That's nice and all, but how much does one really need a 3D smartphone? It might be nice for videos and photos, and potentially for gaming if enough decent apps are made for this device.

Are you interested in buying the LG Optimus 3D?

  • My Next Phone Will Be 3D

    ...if they can get it working nicely and for a decent price. The phone camera is a better fit for 3D than the compact, because putting good-quality optics into 3D is expensive, whereas phone cameras tend to be used for quick snaps and party shots, which is where 3D is best. Couple that to lenticular technology which makes more sense on a personal device due to its limited sweet-spot and I think you have a winner.
