Sharp to launch its glasses-free 3D phones in the U.S. in 2011

Sharp to launch its glasses-free 3D phones in the U.S. in 2011
Just the other day we reported that Japanese carrier Docomo would be offering one of Sharp's glasses-free 3D smartphones next month. The Sharp Lynx 3D, also known as the 003SH, turns 2D images into 3D with the tap of a button. Even without the special effects, the model is feature packed with a 9.6MP camera, a 3.8 inch display, 1GHz processor and a digital television tuner. Shipped with Android 2.1, an upgrade to Froyo is due early in 2011.

The other 3D model, the Sharp 005SH, adds in a side sliding QWERTY keyboard, reduces the MP on the camera to 8, but is the same as the 003SH in all other aspects except that there is no launch date yet for this iteration of the phone. Sharp has announced that the pair of devices will  be working its way to the U.S., China and India in 2011 which probably has plenty to do with the fact that the Sharp Lynx 3D (003SH) has just been checked out by the FCC.

Besides having a 3D display, the phone will also allow you to snap 3D pictures and play special content made for the 3D features of the unit. There is talk that game developers like Capcom, Konami, and Namco are working on some titles for the device.

There is no word on potential carriers in the U.S. or any idea on pricing.

That's cool but sadly we probablly won't see phones like this in the usa for another 5 years we are stilll behind in cellphone technology in japan u can use your phone to buy stuff at at vending machine and use it as a pass to get on the train and as a credit card and many more things we still can't do any of those things with our phones that's why I think we won't see any of those cool feautures on our phones for at least another 5 years cuz we still behind also have any of u checked the docomo website? Its crazy most of there phones have 12 megapixel cameras and digital tv tuners

yeah in no "tome", as much lame as tablets where back wen they where invented? teleology has taken some overhauls on this era thanks to the invention of better processing codes and power, things that where bad/dumb because of the lack of power on last periods have now recover giving users new experiences. if you don't like the way this things are taking over and will become more and more polished, if you think 3D phone will be a stupid idea and think nerds will be the only ones buying them, then I recommend you go and hide in your cave...

do you write on your own computer? or you tell a kid to do it for you? -you have no arguments to defend yourself, you are pointless, insults don't defend your position, they just proves everyone you are the one waisting space here, about living on a cave, sorry cavemen I wont compare you with this guy, he is way more uncivilized... -I have decided i wont deal with this guys comments anymore he may go argue with his other monkeys as long as i care.

Man I'm upset that argument had to stop. ecko had some really good points like "phantasy" and "how stupid is that" and my personal favorite "fuckin'"

@papajay224 it has a button to turn the 3d off or on. Much like the Montanan 3ds except that has a slider to adjust the level of 3d
