Aaron gets a first look at the LG Optimus 3D, the world's first 3D smartphone. Officially unveiled a few moments ago at Mobile World Congress, it's packing a punch with a 1 GHz dual-core, dual-channel TI OMAP processor, 4.3-inch display, dual 5-megapixel cameras for 3D recording, and a front-facing camera for video calling. For the video buff, it shoots non-3D video in 1080p, and 3D video in 720p, so you're getting HD quality video each and every time.

It's odd that LG didn't launch it with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), given that it's rolling out to current devices right now. Here's to hoping for a quick update. Additionally, I'm not entirely sold on the mobile 3D technology just yet, and until content ramps up there won't be much to work with. That said, it's a cool feature to have in the device.
