TVs Are Displaying Three Dimensions, Why Not Phones?

First the HDTVs, then the Nintendo 3DS, and now mobile phones?

All of them are getting 3D! However, the mobile phone is the most interesting target — not only does it pose challenges with a smaller screen, but the fact that everyone has their cell phone with them throughout the day makes it a tricky medium to deal with. Sharp wants to dominate this.

When we think of seeing three-dimensional media, we typically treat this experience as a one-off occasion — it is not something you’d imagine viewing all day long or several times throughout the day. However, that could change in the future.

Sharp is hoping to help speed up adoption.

The display technology company has been demonstrating 3D technology in mobile phones — without the annoying 3D glasses —and it is supposedly looking pretty good.

Sharp is going to be shipping out these screens around six months from now, so maybe we will have the first 3D-enabled phone by the holiday season? It would be interesting to see with our own eyes.

One question though: when do we get 4D?
