LG Optimus 3D to feature the first 3D Augmented Browser
LG announced on Tuesday that its upcoming LG Optimus 3D smartphone would be equipped with the world's first 3D Augmented Browser. While 2D AR browsers show images overlapping their locations, the Wikitude 3D browser shows places, landmarks and objects in 3D "making them easier to distinguish".

With a Augmented Reality browser, the user typically uses the phone's camera to look at a specific area. The browser displays information about the area using graphics, audio and more. The Wikitude browser reveals Wikipedia articles and Twitter messages relevant to the surroundings that the camera is pointing at. Currently, the Wikitude 3D AR browser can provide information on more than 100 million sites globally from more than 1,000 content providers including Wikipedia, YouTube and more. The browser supports 12 languages presently with plans to expand that number in the future.

Starting in the middle of next month, Wikitude 3D can be installed from LG World, the Korean manufacturer's dedicated app store, for free. Dr. Jong-seok Park, CEO and President of LG Mobile Communications Company said, "AR technology has been praised for its potential to replace the ‘abstract’ realities of standard mobile browsers with ‘actual’ reality streamed through the camera of the smartphone. LG’s cutting-edge hardware and 3D API software technology now pushes this reality a step further."

Available this Summer starting in Europe and continuing to other markets, the LG Optimus 3D will have the first full 3D platform providing glasses-free viewing, recording and sharing of 3D content. Stateside 3D fans, no need to worry. As we reported, the device is expected to launch in the U.S. under the name LG Thrill 4G for AT&T.

Like the specs on this phone. It is the only LG on my "short list". But the if the EVO3D beats it to the punch here in the States, will it get any traction?
