Samsung: "No Need" For 3D Cell Phones, But Good Luck With Them Anyway

Samsung's head of product management in its UK mobile division has gone on record as saying the company has no plans to battle rival LG in the 3D cell phone sector. There's no point or demand and it makes phones needlessly thicker. That's the summary. Here are his actual words:
"We are world leaders in 3D, but we haven't seen a need for 3D on mobiles as yet ... we just don't see [3D] is needed yet—good luck to the innovators though, it will be interesting to see if it works, and if it does you'll see a response from Samsung quickly"

I think Samsung is making a good decision there. 3D isn't in much demand on TVs right now, let alone cell phones. Let the market grow first.

Samsung is high on their horse, but if they get behind in this sort of stuff they will sell a lot less then any competitor....

3d is kinda unnecessary for cellphones, but we will see.

3d is just a fad everyone needs to just let it die.
