LG's new Optimus 3D Max glasses-free 3D smartphone is now available in Europe, excluding the UK. The Optimus 3D Max has a 5MP camera which captures both photos and video in 3D using its dual lenses, and images can be viewed on the smartphone in glasses-free 3D or on a 3D capable computer monitor or TV. The device also has a new 3D Converter which converts 2D content from Google Earth, Google Maps and other mapping apps into 3D.
The LG Optimus 3D Max goes even further, with a 3D video editor that lets you edit 3D video on the phone in real time, and there's a 3D Hot Key on the side of the phone that lets you toggle between 2D and 3D. A soon to be available "maintenance release" for the Optimus 3D Max will include a HD Converter for watching HD content on a HDTV connected through Mobile High-Definition Link, and Range Finder, which is said to calculate the distance between the camera and a subject as well as the dimensions of an object through triangulation.
