LG unleashes 3D triple-whammy
When LG goes on the launch rampage over in South Korea you can always count on two things. The first is that the announcements make the rest of the world sit up and take notice and secondly, they'll be bikini clad women showing off the products.
And with the launch of three new 3D-based products, LG didn't disappoint. The world's attention? Got it. Bikini clad women? Just the two this time unfortunately.
First up LG showed off the LG R590 3D notebook. The machine has a 15.6-inch screen and the built-in TriDef software can even turn 2D into 3D in real-time. The notebook comes with some polarized glasses for 3D viewing. It's got an Intel Core i7 processor, an Nvidia GeForce GT335M graphics card and it features SRS Tru-Surround HD.
It's out in Korea this month and should see a worldwide launch after that. The LG R590 3D could be a sign of LG's 3D vision of the future of notebooks. Reuters reports that Harrison Park, LG's mobile communications PC business team leader told reporters:
"With the availability of more 3D content, consumers are enjoying a new experience, and we think that'll drive growth of the 3D computer market."
The electronics giant has predicted global sales of 3D notebook computers to increase five fold by 2011 to 1.1 million units and then rise to 13.8 million units by 2015.
As well as the LG R590 3D notebook, LG also showed off the W63D gaming monitor that is full HD, has a 70,000:1 contrast ratio and a 120Hz refresh rate, as well as the CF3D - a dual engine single lens full 3D and HD projector.
