Failure, well that’s the first word that comes to my mind after reading the pricing information in the press release that landed in my inbox just now. Yes, LG has officially launched Optimus 3D in the Indian market today for INR 37,000.
I am not sure what was LG thinking before pricing it so high, there might be some 3D fans in India, but will they be ready to pay 37K for a smartphone?
Anyways, LG Optimus 3D is the first glasses free 3D smartphone to land in India, but we expect HTC to follow suit with its Evo 3D. Optimus 3D features 1GHz Dual core processor, Android 2.2, 8GB internal storage, 4.3 inch display, dual 5MP camera for 3D recording, which can be shared via DLNA on compatible devices.
It will be available in the Indian market starting next month.
“The LG Optimus 3D is super-smartphone which gives our consumer the pleasure of 3D without the special glasses. Its exceptional features combined with super computing capabilities will add a new dimension to the smartphone experience. The smart consumers will now have the power to create, view & share real-life 3D content and the power to explore the world of unlimited possibilities.”
