As you may already know the LG Optimus 3D is finally on sale here in the UK. Not only is the world’s first 3D smartphone being offered up by various retailers with monthly contracts but it is also available sim-free at a number of stores too. The hotly anticipated device has been featured in quite a few of our articles here at Product Reviews so far.
Back in May we provided you with news of contract prices on offer from some of the stores that are selling the Optimus 3D. One of the stores included was BuyMobilePhones.com, who was offering the device up for pre-order on four major UK carriers including Vodafone, T-Mobile, O2 and Orange, from £25.54 a month on a 2 year contract.
The carriers themselves each offer the device for no less than £30 a month. Clove.co.uk was another store that is offering the 3D smartphone, but they have it available sim-free for £454 as long as you’re willing to wait until July 9th. Amazon is also offering the device sim-free, although it is slightly more expensive at £459 and won’t be available until July 21st.
According to The Inquirer Carphone Warehouse has the LG Optimus 3D on sale now for £499.95 sim-free and when ordered online will be with you by July 7th. The store also offers the handset on contract with the UK carriers from $35 a month. Unfortunately there is still no word as to when the 3D delight will be available to our neighbors in the US.
The LG Optimus 3D is not only the first available 3D smartphone on the market but it is also the first glasses-free version. Another device that will be providing the people the 3D features without the need for glasses is the HTC EVO 3D. We recently brought you an article which featured a video comparison of the two devices in order to establish which the better option is. Both are very similar and the EVO 3D is also expected this month.
Here is a quick reminder of what the Optimus 3D features are; apart from the obvious stereoscopic 3D display which is 4.3” it is also packing a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 8GB storage, Android 2.2 Froyo and dual 5MP cameras.
