Samsung says 3D makes phones too bulky, but ready to roll one if people like it

Samsung says 3D makes phones too bulky, but ready to roll one if people want it
The product management chief of Samsung Mobile in the UK, Jim Powell, said at the MWC 2011 Expo that the company is not planning a 3D-capable cell phone just yet:

We are world leaders in 3D, but we haven’t seen a need for 3D on mobiles as yet for UK customers... There’s a trade off with when it comes to thickness and pocketablity when it comes adding 3D into a mobile phone as well...We just don’t see [3D] is needed yet – good luck to the innovators though, it will be interesting to see if it works, and if it does you’ll see a response from Samsung quickly.”, he adds

It looks like Sammy is taking the wait-and-see approach regarding the LG Optimus 3D, to gauge people's interest in the technology, and wait for the content market to mature enough before it jumps in.

We've no doubt Samsung is capable of quickly putting together a parallax barrier screen overlay, which is supposed to add the bearable $10-$15 to the cost to manufacture a touchscreen phone, and slap a couple of camera lenses on the back, should people fall in love with 3D.
