Not sure how this one slipped through the cracks, but Nokia apparently showed off a new 3D stereoscopic display at Nokia World 2009 that it doesn’t require any special 3D glasses! The new tech can display simple 3D perspectives on a handheld-sized device, paving they way for truly 3D mobile phones in the future.
Nokia outfitted a Nokia N810 Internet Tablet with their special 3D display, giving the naked eye the perception of depth in the field. TheD screen 3 requires special software, developed by Nokia, to make ordinary pictures and movies come to life. Unfortunately, the Finns are staying tight-lipped on which third-party display maker is responsible for the 3D display. Still, they did tell Pocket-lint that Nokia has been researching 3D display for “several years.”
Let’s hope we’ll be seeing Nokia’s next 3D smartphone hitting stores before another “several years.”
