  • What Role Will 3D Display Have in Future iDevices?


    One of Hollywood's newest and biggest love affairs centers on the movie industry's appetite for all things 3D. At no time in recent memory have film studios been so aggressive in their efforts to ramp up plans to produce, film, and distribute movies for 3D screens. Accordingly, in the age of mobile digital content consumption, audiences are growing eager to enjoy the same thrills of big screen entertainment on the small screens that trail their every step.

    Herein lies the birth of a much-talked-about possibility this week, one that suggests Apple is considering using 3D technology in future iDevices, most likely the iPad 3. "The fact that the iPad 3 is 3D is a dead cert,” one Hollywood insider tells RCR Wireless, which noted the close relationship the source has to Hollywood-based major production studios.

    She went on to say that the big film studios were currently running around like blue arsed flies trying to gear up to release plenty of 3D content in time for Apple’s next launch.
    Of course, as with similar speculation about Apple possibly embracing over-the-air iOS updates in the future, the prospect of a 3D-capable tablet screen isn't altogether groundbreaking either. The new PlayBook, after all, supports 3D video, even though a major drawback is the fact that it must be connected to a 3D enabled TV screen via HDMI to function. Oh yeah, and it requires those fashion-challenged 3D glasses.

    Although the web is populated daily with talk of what Apple might do in subsequent product refreshes, the concept of Cupertino infusing future iPads with glasses-less 3D screens isn't too terribly difficult to fathom. After all, the iPad has become one of the world's most popular contemporary platforms for consuming digital media - and, in particular, movies.

    Should the iPad 3, for example, turn up in 2012 with corresponding 3D viewing technologies, the feature could prove a major selling point to no shortage of on-the-fence buyers and current iPad owners considering the upgrade.

      Not me, but Pakistan has the remains of a 100 million dollar stealth helicopter. Maybe it was made of Unobtainium?

      Let's think about the "groundbreaking" features in the i4: Good display, front camera, antenna, dual mic, and new design.

      Now 3D... Apple won't pioneer this. There is no competition besides 3DS to compare consumer reactions, and if Apple even cares to keep the 'phone' in the iPhone, ask yourself this: would u pay $200 to get a phone with 3D?

      This is honestly very far off, even more so than the iPhone getting a kickstand. 3D would be a step backwards for Apple; however, it is obviously a huge leap in the desperation for rumors on this site.
      You have got to be kidding me. 3D with out glasses is definitely something apple would implement. It's different and new, right up apples ally. I don't think you know anything about apple. Your theories are always the opposite of the history of apples design. I hate seeing your post because it makes me feel dumber reading them. All you do is flame, complain, insult and make statements that have no factual or theoretical basis. I wish you would leave mmi and go flame and troll with the rest of the idiots at gawker, but I know you won't. You think your 16 year old brain is so ******* fantastical. I wish the mods would ban you because you make the whole mmi community look retarded.

      If they are going to implement 3D in their iDevices, they should have an option to turn it off/on.

      I state facts. When you reach my level of experiance with repairing, modding and building mobile devices and computers with apple products making up atleast 80% of my business you get a little sick of trolling idiots saying stupid things. If your going to post on a topic atleast know what your talking about. I most like wouldn't ride him so hard if his name wasn't Jailbreak Genius, when he is a jailbreak noob at best. I may not write apps Ect. For the iPhone, I do write hardware and assesory drivers and patches for macs and hackintoshes. I know how apple works on a software and hardware level, and my educated guesses have always been right thus far. He has called me an idiot on several occasions when he was blatantly wrong. Dark syn I do not have a problem with you other than you being a pirate but I have learned that most people are and have gotten over it. Don't lower your self to defending this troll of a poser.
