Daily readers will know that we have a love-hate relationship with 3D and the growing availability of glasses-free 3D gadgets. While it's certainly great to not have to don dorky eyewear, 3D on glasses-free devices have a limited field of view. LG's 20-inch 3D display solves that issue with a eye-tracking.
It's funny how new gadgets often pop up unexpectedly long before the manufacturer has a chance to make a big splash. This time it's a new LG branded dual-screen slider Android phone, which showed up at a London press event held by UK carrier Orange.
It seems like Google might not be so happy with how the Xoom debuted its Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet-optimized OS. Like its Nexus One and Nexus S smartphone, it would appear Google will once again have to step in and show everyone else how to build a proper Android 3.0-based tablet.

Why do chalkboards still even exist in classrooms? With today's amazing touchscreen surfaces, the dusty chalkboard is practically a relic. No chalkboard can compare to LG's Touch TV, an interactive multitouch 60-inch plasma that lets anyone add their own layer of content on top of the TV's.
How many little black boxes are connected to your flat screen? How about considering another? LG's box is kind of like a V8-engine for your outdated HDTV — it turns any cheap tube into a Smart TV.
Most "cameraphones" are cellphones with crappy cameras on board. Those cameras are getting better, but they still can't compete with stand-alone shooters. Not so with the LG L-03C.
People have been saying that OLED TVs are the wave of the future, offering up brilliant color and brightness in very thin panels that are very energy efficient. What's not to like? Well, the price, for one, with Sony's first OLED TV, the XEL-1, measured a mere 11 inches and cost over $2,000.
It seems like there's a new buzzword coming from the TV industry every year, each designed to make you think the TV you bought last year just won't cut it anymore: LCD, LED, 240Hz, 3D. The latest? NANO lighting technology.
While the e-reader price war continues, LG is quietly making plans to become a major innovator in the e-paper market. According to an SEC filing made last Friday, the company plans to be making big, flexible e-paper screens as well as smaller-size color e-paper by the end of the year.
