LG and YouTube add 3D goodness to mobile devices

LG YouTube partnership

We’d be really ignorant if we didn’t already notice the 3D craze that’s caught technology manufacturers at the ongoing MWC. It’s LG and YouTube that have recently announced their partnership to offer users a complete 3D experience on their mobile devices.

We just reported about LG’s handset portfolio with 3D as the show-stopping feature today. These and many other of the manufacturer’s forthcoming Android-based smartphones will get more 3D loving. While being able to snap up and view 3D videos minus those garish shades, users will also be able to share and upload them through YouTube seamlessly.

“The Optimus 3D is LG’s newest flagship smartphone. It is our answer to two major pain points of the current 3D experience – limited mobility and specialized glasses. Furthermore, our partnership with YouTube will ensure that our customers can easily generate and access ample 3D content,” shared Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

“3D technology has traditionally been reserved for the major Hollywood movie studios,” revealed Francsico Varela, Head of YouTube Platform Partnerships. “With the new LG Optimus 3D anyone anywhere in the world can shoot 3D videos, upload them to YouTube and share them with their friends. We’re excited to see the creative videos our community captures and shares with this new technology.”

According to the companies, this new agreement is their step towards expanding 3D entertainment to the online video community. The fact that they’re claiming a simple and easy way to share and deliver 3D video content on mobile devices ought to put a smile on users’ faces.

LG’s Optimus 3D is set to be the first phone to make the most of YouTube in 3D. The handset is slated for an early Q2 release this year beginning with availability in Europe.
