A pair of mostly unrelated LG stories here: During CES the Korean phone maker showed off a bit of functional glasses-free 3D technology housed in a non-functional smartphone casing. The 4.3-inch LCD display uses applied parallax barrier technology to create its 3D effect, and could be making its way to a working handset shortly, says Pocket-Lint after speaking with an LG rep. They wouldn’t be the first to successfully marry the technologies, as Sharp already has a line of glasses-free 3D Android handsets in Japan. Word on the street is that Sprint and HTC might have a similar offering up their sleeve for their February 7th press event.
The second LG story concerns the Optimus 2X. It will be landing in Europe this month, but now we are hearing that Australia can expect it, too. When? Sometime in March or April seems to be most likely. It should be a carrier exclusive for one of the country’s big three mobile providers, Telstra, Optus, or Vodafone.
