Then, users can opt any of Three’s All In One packages which offers 30 days of calls, texts along with data for set fee.

Gingerbread upgrade to LG Optimus 3D will be available only in October
Jul 17th, 2011 by Dipak Sarda

Bad news for already owners of LG Optimus 3D Smartphone and discouraging new for prospective users, LG has tentatively indicated that it will not be ready with Gingerbread (Android 2.3, latest version of Android Mobile Operating System) upgrade for LG Optimus 3D Smartphone until October.

Currently LG Optimus 3D is running Android 2.2, which is popularly known as Froyo and users are eagerly waiting for upgrade to latest version, for which they still need to wait for three more months, which will be ten months after the availability of Gingerbread version of Android Operating System, by which Google may announce Android 2.4, next version of Android Operating System and code named as Ice Cream Sandwich. In other words, immediately after getting upgrade for Gingerbread, LG Optimus 3D owners have to start waiting for next version upgrade. This is really not very encouraging news for prospective buyers of first 3D enabled Smartphone in the market.

October timeframe is for UK users, users from other countries may have to go through even longer waiting times before they could see the upgrade over their phones. This may indirectly help the sales of HTC’s Evo 3D, which comes with 3D feature and ships with Gingerbread version of Android.

LG Optimus 3D – a review
Jul 8th, 2011 by Dipak Sarda

LG Optimus 3D

Coming close on the heels of Nintendo’s 3DS is the release of LG Optimus 3D – the first mobile phone with a glasses-free 3D display.

The Optimus 3D is relatively chunky compared to Galaxy S2 sporting a massive 4.3 inch parallax barrier-covered display. The phone sports a special key for the phone’s three dimensional options – games, video and 3D options for the dual lens camera.

The 3D effect works pretty well – no great deal of crosstalk or ghosting, which is often the case with 3D displays. However, the down side is that the sweet spot for viewing the effect is extremely small.

There is no proper tie-up from the end of LG with any movie service. This meant that the available 3D films are restricted pretty much to trailers and You Tube’s 3D channel as of now.

The camera adds a bit of zing to the phone. There is a sense of depth in the videos but images are a bit dim. The best example of the phone features can be gauged from the pre-loaded games with the shooter NOVA 3D showcasing the added depth.

The overall feel is that the phone is a good model but the selling points are more gimmicky and less essential.
