Whispers abound that the upcoming LG Slate device (which has already gone through the FCC’s paces) will certainly place a significant amount of attention where stereoscopic 3D is concerned – it seems that an LG France spokesman disclosed that the Tegra 2-based tablet’s 8.9-inch LCD will not only be accompanied by a glasses-free 3D display, but is also more than able to record 3D video. Having said that, it ought to be accompanied by an HDMI output, but it remains to be seen whether this is HDMI 1.4 and can output 3D to a connected TV. It is rather strange that the same spokesman mentioned only one front and one back camera, which in theory is not good enough for stereoscopic 3D, since current technology requires at least two cameras on the same side to stitch together the final image. Not only that, it will require a large amount of processing muscle to record at such a level, which is where the Tegra 2 chipset comes in albeit at the possibility of a resolution drop. I guess we will just have to play the waiting game, but in the mean time, enjoy the promotional video of the LG Slate in the extended post.
