EXCLUSIVE: Sharp's new 3D touting shooting phone camera says hello to IFA

Sharp will use the company's IFA press conference to demo a new range of 3D, without glasses, screens in mobile devices ranging from 3 to 10 inches in size.

The flagship announcement will be an impressive iPhone 4/Samsung Galaxy S looking prototype that like the Fujifilm Real 3D W3 camera just announced weeks ago, features two cameras on the rear to shoot 3D footage.

The concept will, like the Nintendo 3DS, feature a lenticular lens that allows users to view the 3D shots without the need for cumbersome glasses.

When asked when we could expect such a device, a Sharp spokesman confirmed to Pocket-lint that it was planning on launching something before the year was out.

Our man wouldn't confirm whether that was to the UK, the US, or just Japan, but if you want your 3D on the go, you should be prepared to get very excited.

But Sharp isn't stopping at just 3 inches. The company is also using IFA to demo two prototype screens; one of 3.8 inches in size and the other 10.1 inches.

Neither will need glasses to enjoy the 3D experience.

No word on when we can expect those, however.
