LG teases 3D devices ahead of big unveiling at Mobile World Congress

More than any company recently, LG likes to play the leaks game to create blog buzz for their upcoming products and two new morsels hit the web today.

First Pocket-Lint posted a leaked trailer for the LG Optimus 3D that will be on display next week at MWC. Few details were revealed, but the video shows a 360 view of the phone and highlights the device’s 3D abilities by saying, “Finally, a smartphone that sees the world like we do.”

The device is rumored to feature a 4.3 inch WVGA (800 x 540) glasses-free 3D display, dual-lens camera for 3D recording, and be powered by a dual-core 1 GHz OMAP4430 processor.

Next we have another video of the LG G-Slate tablet that is headed to T-Mobile in March. One of LG’s PR guys uploaded a quick hands-on with the G-Slate and placed it on his personal YouTube account, but the clip is now offline. Either this guy is really in trouble for leaking his own company’s product or it was all a publicity stunt. Either way, it got everyone talking about the G-Slate again, so a point goes to LG.

In the video we got a brief preview of the G-Slate’s 3D features. The dual-lens camera records pictures and video in 3D and then the 8.9 inch display can play back the content. The whole demo looked pretty cool, but unfortunately you will have to wear special 3D glasses to experience the 3D-ness.

At this point it still appears that Motorola might have the better Honeycomb tablet with their upcoming Xoom, but we still have to wait and see what Samsung (Galaxy Tab 2) and HTC (Verdi) are going to reveal next week at Mobile World Congress.

Update: Thanks to the internets, we located a backup copy of the G-Slate video. Enjoy it while it lasts.

    I like the lg slate tablet,i gonna pick one up when out comes out.

  • http://Website dagamer34

    All yours for only $999!!! (Price made up).

    Simply put, if the price isn’t competitive with the iPad, why release the product?

    • http://Website Tito!

      It will be, trust me. Competitive than iPad? Maybe. Competetive then Xoom? Definately.
      This is T-Mobile we’re talking about. :)

    the G-Slate is looking better and better, even though i could do without the 3D. Also nice to have 4G out of the box, but paying MORE per month than verizon for data is kinda ass.

    Also t-mobiles network is terrible in my house. both my N1 and my dads Vibrant can never get above edge in our house, which is another reason i was leaning toward the xoom.

    Taylor, what carriers could see the optimistic 3D?

    • http://androidandme.com Taylor Wimberly

      I have heard of no carriers picking up the Optimus 3D yet, but I’m sure some will be revealed next week.

    Anaglyph? Really LG? This is supposed to be 2011. What’s with the antedeluvian 3D technique?

  • http://Website Tito!

    You’re Serious? You Seriously think Xoom is better then G-Slate? Not a fat Chance.

    • http://androidandme.com Taylor Wimberly

      I’ve only had hands-on time with the Xoom, so my opinion is slanted right now towards Motorola. It’s the product that Google chose to developer Honeycomb on so I think it has a good chance of offering the most pure Google experience. Price could definitely play a factor though.

      • http://Website Calvin

        I believe your wrong Taylor, the Xoom would offer the pure Google experience, but the G-Slate would also be the same. Who leaked all the Honeycomb goodness? T-Mobile. And T-Mobile has a record for keeping Android as pure as it can with the Mytouch3G, N1,NS,G1, and G2.

    Looks really HOTT cannot wait to buy on day one and I have to say VERY impressed by the battery life as well. The 8.9″ screen is the PERFECT balance between 7″(too small) and 10″(too big). Bravo LG and T-Mobile? it’s definitely going to be in my hands.

    Toshiba pad looking better each day. I dont want a carrier based pad, just wifi. Xoom is to expensive so if a 10″ pad doesnt come out for $499 its the color nook for me.
