Sharp aired its stunning new 3D display. The mobile display
offers switchable 2D and 3D display modes and best of all does not
require the user to wear any goofy glasses.The television
manufacturing industry at CES 2010 revealed itself to be deeply
enamored with 3D sets. However, doubts
remain over whether users will be willing to don special
glasses every time they want to watch events broadcast in TV. A
handful of companies, including Sharp, are alternatively pushing sets
that don't require glasses.The new Sharp display uses
something called "CG-Silicon technology" to achieve high
brightness and low cross-talk. The new technology shrinks the
size of wiring, enabling a brightness of 500 cd/m2,
twice the brightness of previous 3D mobile displays.The
display supports touch technology, measures 3.4-inches, and sports a
480x854 pixel FWVGA resolution. That size screen could fit in
generation iPhone, but its inclusion seems less likely.
Sharp does say that it would be a great match for smartphones
though.A more likely target is that the display will be used
upcoming 3DS, portable 3D gaming console. The new portable
is expected to launch in March 2011 as a follow-up to the
best-selling Nintendo DS. By then the display will have been
produced for some time, as it's expected to start production in the
first half of fiscal 2010. Hitachi has also been speculated to
possibly be the producer of the Nintendo 3DS screen.It'd also
make a pretty nice addition to an Android handset, in our opinion.
