LG Optimus 3D will come with Wikitude’s 3D augmented reality browser

Expected to be released starting next month (June), the LG Optimus 3D will be the first smartphone to support Wikitude’s brand new 3D augmented reality browser.

Including information on more than 100 million locations around the world, the Wikitude 3D browser displays objects, landmarks and places in 3D, “making them easier to distinguish.” The application also lets you find details about surrounding areas, and provides access to related Wikipedia articles, and Twitter content.

For the beginning, Wikitude 3D will support 12 languages.

“AR technology has been praised for its potential to replace the ‘abstract’ realities of standard mobile browsers with ‘actual’ reality streamed through the camera of the smartphone. LG’s cutting-edge hardware and 3D API software technology now pushes this reality a step further” declared Dr. Jong-seok Park, CEO and President of LG Mobile Communications.

According to LG, Wikitude 3D will be available as a free download via LG’s app store (LG World), starting mid-June. I’m not sure if this means it won’t be pre-installed on the Optimus 3D.
