samsung is just waiting for the others to come out with their own 3d phone and see how the market will react. if it did well then they will release their own 3d phone, if not, then they will just sit and laugh at those who did release 3d phone. (that;s you htc and lg). same goes with samsung galaxy s3. they wait for htc to come out with their one-series and see consumer's reaction so they will know what to add or remove from their galaxy s3.

Ouch. No 3D! Now that hurts. Hey, Samsung, what about HD-DVD? Will you integrate Sony's MemoryStick? Actually, all I really want to know is which SGS3 version will be compatible with BetaMax. If Samsung could only pull all this stuff into the SGS3, it would be the best Internet Appliance around.

Phone screens are generally too small for 3d to be worth it or effective.

3D is ok on a huge movie theater screen with all the sound effects to go with,but I just couldn't get it on a comparatively tiny phone screen. Looks cool,but that's about it.

We already saw that previous 3D phones did not attain big success, so I think this decision of SAMSUNG is totally logical.
