LG confirms MWC announcement of Optimus 3D and Optimus Pad
MWC hasn't kicked off yet, but LG has already made sure that we are in the know of what it's going to unveil at the expo. The company hit us with a press-release going that the new devices it'll introduce, probably on the 14th, are the LG Optimus 3D and a new tablet - the LG Optimus Pad, which seems to be the European version of the T-Mobile G-Slate.

Not much new stuff here, however it's always good to know that the company has strong intentions to regain its position as a true high-end contender. The LG Optimus 3D sounds like a pretty remarkable device, being the first smartphone to sport a 4.3" glasses-free WVGA 3D display, coupled with a 3D camera on the back. This is made possible due to the 1GHz dual-core TI OMAP4 processor running the show. Additionally, users will be able to share their content through the built-in HDMI port or DLNA.

Probably identical to the G-Slate (or very similar at the least), the LG Optimus Pad will feature an 8.9" display with WXGA resolution (1280x768). It's going to be powered by the dual-core Tegra 2 chipset by NVIDIA, which will allow for Full HD 1080p video decoding and 3D video capture with the built-in stereo camera on the back side. The captured 3D content will be watchable on an external high-definition 3D TV, so no glasses-free 3D here. However, it will most probably be capable of anaglyph 3D video playback, so if you happen to have those red/cyan glasses with you, you'll probably be able to enjoy the video right on the device. The latter is more of a guess as of now though, so it's worth waiting for the official announcement in a day or so to see what the company has in mind.
