Sharp developing 3D screens for mobile phones

Sharp has announced the impeding availability of glass-less 3D touch screens for mobile phones. Sharp expects 3-D to replace two-dimensional displays the same way colour replaced black-and-white in movies and television.

"The arrival of mobile 3-D is just around the corner," Hasegawa told reporters.

Unfortunately the technology, while much improved from past implementations, still have disadvantages, including the size of the screen, which can be a maximum of 3.4 inches, and that the 3D effect is most convincing then the screen is held 30 cm (1 foot) away from the eyes.

Sharp has however made great progress in improving screen brightness, and also providing the ability to show both 3D and 3D content on the same screen, Sharp noting that this is an essential capability while 3D content is still thin on the ground, and the ability to show 3D content in both portrait and landscape mode.

Mass production of the 3-D LCDs is set to start in the first half of fiscal 2010, which began April 1, it said. The screens are widely expected to show up in the next iteration of the Nintendo DS soon.
