Sharp’s 3D Android phones are coming to America in 2011

We didn’t expect glasses-free 3D phones to arrive in the United States till next summer, but we could seen them sooner thanks to Japanese manufacturer Sharp. No specific models were mentioned but Sharp has a pair of 3D phones going on sale this year in Japan and they announced they will expand to the United States, China, and India in 2011.

In addition to the 3D display, Sharp’s new phones can also capture pictures in 3D. We have also learned that Capcom, Konami, and Namco are working on 3D games for these new devices.

One of Sharp’s 3D models, the 003SH, was recently spotted on the FCC’s site, but there is no telling which carrier might launch the device. Which U.S. carrier would you like to see launch a 3D phone?

    Is there any new news on battery life?

    Phones keep getting more and more features without any improvements to battery life.

    A 3d phone with a dual core processor will have extremely bad battery life.

    3d seems like such a gimmick that people are buying into these days. They make movie’s 3d to charge you $10 more a ticket, 3d TV’s to up the price and when all is said and done, its still just a gimmick, especially on a phone screen… at least movies and tv are on screens big enough to enjoy all the “3d goodness” on, but a phone. Come on, things are getting out of hand here. Ill pass on this for a nice dual-core, high def screen like that new LG coming (perhaps once more is learned about it).

    I can see it now… a new bad ass commercial from Verizon for the new Droid 3D talking about how every other 3D device requires glasses and the commercial will probably end with “No one does 3D like DROID”.

    Yeah, that seems like some really smart keyboard design.

    A friend of mine has a Milestone, and it’s terrible to press ‘A’ there. Placing the d-pad on the left should help with that. Hopefully the right side still remains comfortable, as I really like the shape of the backspace and enter keys, there seems to be a much lower chance of pressing the wrong key than on your typical keyboard (physical or virtual).
