Hitachi to release 3D LCD for mobile devices

3D displays will soon be the norm, and I’m not talking about those expensive 3D TVs destined for living rooms and dens around the world, but 3D in the palm of your hand – without the need for funky glasses.

Hitachi Displays announced today the development of a 3.1-inch 3D LCD that is “optimized” for mobile devices. There’s a good chance that they’ll use it for cell phones and such, but the 3D-ness could be destined for gaming too.

We heard about the Nintendo 3DS was revealed last month, and it seems like this new 3D LCD from Hitachi could be used for that device.  The display has a 480 x 854 pixel resolution (“FWVGA”), a 1000:1 contrast ratio, and a 400 cd/m2 brightness ratio. The 3D imagery is “produced by the parallax barrier-based IPS panel.” I think this creates the illusion of depth into the screen rather than having images look like they’re popping out of the screen, but I could be wrong.
