Aaron gets some hands-on time with the LG Optimus 3D Max, the successor to the Optimus 3D, at Mobile World Congress. It's noticeably thinner than its predecessor, with specs that include a 1.2 GHz dual-core TI OMAP processor, 4.3-inch display with 480x800 pixels, dual 5-megapixel cameras, and Android 2.3 with LG's custom UI (the older version). It's a nice little evolutionary upgrade from the Optimus 3D, though the word is still out on whether it'll be coming to a carrier in the United States.

Philip Weißner
Philip Weißner The interessting thing is that manufacturers like LG or HTC really think it's done when they put the 3D Device on market as the first how did this...but the point is that if I can choose between an "half" 3D device and any other device , maybe for less money, which has his all functions"completely" working great...i choose the second....
