LG has announced the launch of the world’s first HD, 3D notebook, allowing users to watch high-quality movies, games and graphics on the move. The LG A510 features a hardware combination never before offered on a notebook: 15.6-inch Full HD 3D LED LCD display, GeForceH GT 425M graphics card and 1GB of dedicated DDR3 video memory.
Dr. Skott Ahn, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said: "3D is increasingly becoming a common part of the home entertainment landscape so it is against this backdrop that we are working to make this technology better and more accessible for consumers. As more and more people consume content and interact via portable screens, we think this is a natural next step for business travellers, college students and small office/home office owners. And we put the entire package in a beautifully-designed chassis because we don’t think high-tech has to be a dull grey pizza box."
The A510 ships with polarized glasses for easier portability. A set of clip-on 3D lenses are also included for regular glasses-wearers. Beyond the visual, the notebook boasts SRS TruSurround HD for the ultimate immersive audio experience for movies and games.
With much of the content in the 3D world still in development, LG equipped the notebook with TriDef software which converts 2D into 3D content on demand. Using TriDef, viewers can see all their favourite shows and movies in up-converted 3D as soon as their LG A510 is unboxed.
LG will roll out this premium notebook in Asia, South America, the Middle East and Africa starting in October 2010.
