MWC's Stand-Outs Today

     There have been a slew of devices launched, detailed, and handled today. There is no possible way I could give you all of the details on all of them, so I will just name a few stand-out devices for now. Some push the limit while some just make you ask why.
     LG's entrants may be the devices that ask the question of "why?". The Optimus 3D is a super phone with dual memory and dual-core. It has a super large, but seemingly ubiquitous 4.3" screen with a special feature that adds a little appeal to it. The screen is stereoscopic which allows you to watch 3D without glasses. To get that 3D content it has dual 8MP, 1080p cameras on the back along with a single 2MP shooter on the front. The 7" Optimus Pad (G-Slate in America) also has dual cameras for 3D, but they are only 720p and the screen requires passive glasses to view 3D. The Pad will run Honeycomb and have a Tegra II processor.
     Acer has a new entry into the smart phone market that really pushes the limit as to what it will be called. The screen is a whopping 4.8". This thing reaks of Dell Streak, but the bezel seems to be a lot smaller than on other devices, presumably to maximize the portability. Another weird feature it has is the 2MP camera on the back and 8MP on the front. I certainly hope that was a mistake because that just seems stupid to put the goos camera on the front.It is still out for debate in whether it should be considered a tablet.

     The last device I will touch base on today is the Galaxy S WiFi 4.0 and 5.0. Imagine a Galaxy S without any type of cell service and a five inch screen-ed variant. It's about time somebody other than Archos hit on the iPod Touch market.
