Sony Xperia

Its not even been through its first day and already a multitude of exciting things have come to surface at the MWC 2011. The big talking point has obviously been the new Xperia handset from Sony. The video below is footage from earlier today and shows the fluidity and flexibility of the new OS and how easy it is to use…

A release date has also been confirmed, the details are below…

Sony Ericsson just announced that Big Red customers will be able to snatch up the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play in early Spring as they’ll be the first carrier in the United States to carry the device. We expected that to happen, but it’s official now. They also left TONS of room for other carriers to make their own announcements, and we’re sure that many European outlets will have the goods you’re looking for. Look out for our Xperia Play hands-on in a bit!

Optimus 3D P920 (Aptly titled as this looks like a monster of a phone)

Other news comes from LG who have unveiled their Optimus 3D P920, which they have alleged is the worlds first phone that will use the dual core facility to its full capacity, speeding up games, web pages and everything else in between.

The Optimus 3D Phone

LG announced the Optimus 3D with dual-everything architecture at MWC today, and it packs quite the punch. The glasses-free 3D capable handset sports a 1GHz dual-core dual-channel processor (Texas Instruments OMAP4), 4.3-inch 3D WVGA screen, 8GB memory and 4Gb LP DDR2, 1,500 mAh battery, 5MP dual-lens camera which can shoot 2D in 1080p and 3D in 720p, and it willy initially run Android 2.2 Froyo. We also learned earlier that LG partnered with YouTube to bring a unique 3D experience to the handset – allowing users to upload and view 3D videos directly on their device.
The LG Optimus 3D will begin shipping globally starting with Europe early in the second quarter.

LG also released an incredibly cheesy promotional video, the cheese i hope is for deliberate humorous effect, but does go some way in outlining the power of its 3D capability

their promotional video is incredibly entertaining, inspirational and sums it all up really well, It innovatively compares their new phones infrastructure to a production plant…watch it and you’ll get what i mean..

There will be more updates soon 🙂
