LG Optimus 3D delayed for UK

The LG Optimus 3D  got an official unveiling way back in February and was set for an appearance in the UK in the first half of 2011. So far that's not happened, with yet another delay pushing it back until July at best.

If you missed it first time round, the LG Optimus 3D is an Android 2.2 phone upgradeable to Android 2.3 and hopefully with the latter when it finally arrives. It also has a dual-core processor, dual-memory (combining for superfast browsing), a five-megapixel dual-lens camera and...3D. Yes, it's the world's first full 3D camera, with that 4.3-inch 3D WVGA display offering the added dimension without the need for silly glasses. You can even capture and record images and videos in 3D with the dual camera, with the option to upload to YouTube or connect to a 3D television. Exciting stuff. Or it will be when it launches.

According to TechRadar, the release dates at Amazon, eXpansys and Clove have all now slipped, although some retailers have a very similar new date, which does indicate a level of accuracy. Specifically, Amazon has now listed the LG Optimus 3D release date as 13 July, Play.com claims 12 July and Clove has it down for 11 July. So in short, mid-July for the SIM-free market.

How about the networks? Well, T-Mobile, Orange and Three confirmed that they would be shipping the device at launch, but none have so far been brave enough to announce an actual shelf date. July does look a good bet though if you are running down a contract.
