Well, T-Mobile’s G-Slate pushed the envelope for a moment, but it seems that Toshiba is upping the ante. At SID, they showcased a tablet-sized 3D screen that doesn’t need glasses to create the effect. Wait, what? Does this mean that the new generation of tablets will offer up glasses-free 3D? How could it not, right?
Now, they aren’t tipping their hand with the applications of such a screen, but there’s no doubt that this will change the tablet game in a hurry. They’re still trying to expand the technology to larger screens, however, so we’ll have to wait on getting that 50-inch glasses-free LCD for awhile. Apparently, the picture quality takes a huge hit when you expand the size of the viewing window, but for now, this news suits us just fine.
The screen that Toshiba was showing off is 8-inches in size and the quality was outstanding. There are still some issues that need to be resolved regarding viewing angles, but when using a tablet, it’s usually going to be only one person viewing anyway. In light of this news, expect the next generation of tablets to take the 3D experience to the next level. Glasses…we’ll see ya later!!!
