LG opens up Optimus 3D with 2D game converter
News from TechRadar UK:

LG has shown it’s committed to making a success of 3D on the move by announcing a new 2D to 3D conversion kit for its Optimus 3D phone.

Current Optimus 3D users will be able to convert any 2D game using the new platform; the mobile will first scan to see if the title is listed as optimised, and if not, will add the necessary level of depth to create a ’3D effect’.

We’re not so sure about on the fly conversion, as we’ve seen companies try this on a number of occasions and mostly with little to no success.

Under new leadership, electronics maker hopes to join top tier

By Kim Yoo-chul
