The LG G-Slate plays 3D high-definition content without glasses
LG is trying to offer its customers a different experience with its forthcoming tablet, called the G-Slate, which it claims can play 3D high-definition content without the need for glasses.
The new 8.9-inch touch screen device, which will make its debut at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) exhibition in Barcelona, Spain, will be the first tablet to have 3D capabilities.
LG's rivals Apple and Samsung have so far made no comment on the advancement.
LG has also not revealed whether or not its future tablet models will have glasses free 3D features, waiting for positive customer response before making a decision.
The device will operate on the new Android 3.0 or Honeycomb and will also run on a Tegra2 processor, packing in a 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video chats.
Yoon Won-il, LG spokesman, said: "The tablet is designed to shoot and play 3D video clips in high definition, which can be watched without the help of the customised glasses."
An unnamed LG executive said: "With the available technology, we can come up with glasses-free 3D features for small-sized screens like those for cell phones or tablets."
