Microsoft has its own Project Glass – augmented reality glasses/wearable computer combo

Microsoft has it’s own Project Glass cooking in the R&D labs. It’s an augmented reality glasses/heads-up display, that should supply you with various bits of trivia while you are watching a live event, e.g. baseball game. The device was made public via Microsoft’s patent application published today. Microsoft is taking a much more gradual approach than Google, which already has a working wearable computer/augmented reality glasses...

Nokia and Samsung working on 3D mobile displays

Until now, only two major smartphone makers launched devices with 3D displays: HTC and LG. And while 3D is still a marketing gimmick rather than something really useful on a smartphone, it looks like Samsung and Nokia want to join the party, too. Today we found out that both companies have filed patent applications with the USPTO a while ago, proving that they intend to have 3D handsets in the future. Nokia’s patent application...

LG Optimus 3D Max starts shipping in Europe, costs around €500

LG has just announced that its second 3D Android smartphone, the Optimus 3D Max, is now shipping in Europe.

HTC Evo 3D could be sold by Virgin Mobile as the Evo V 4G

Virgin Mobile could start selling the HTC Evo 3D later this year. Yes, that Evo 3D, the year-old device that has so far failed to sell in any significant numbers. The most important difference between the device that Virgin will have and the one that’s been at Sprint all this time is the name. Virgin is apparently going to go with HTC Evo V 4G, for some reason. Perhaps all that 3D gimmickry isn’t worthy of a mention in the...

Another new Android smartphone that LG brought to MWC 2012 in Barcelona (alongside the Optimus 4X HD and Optimus Vu, for example) is the Optimus 3D Max P720 (known as Optimus 3D Cube in South Korea).
