Reuters: While larger displays that allow users to view 3D images without special glasses have yet to catch on, Sharp is betting that 3D will be a hit with mobile users. The company said it plans to launch a line of mobile 3D displays later this year.
"In the 2D era, contents and infrastructure have spread from movies to homes, and from homes to mobile devices," said Sharp's Yoshisuke Hasegawa. "We believe the same thing will happen with 3D. Three-dimensional images that mostly inhabit big screens now are about to hit mobile terminals."
Analysts note that 3D on a mobile display is less technically challenging because users tend to view the screens from a fixed distance and fixed angle.
