of the world’s first 3D tablet by LG made me question its relevance for the
business sector. Sure, the Optimus Pad is lightweight at 630g and has ample
battery life of 10hrs, but how does "3D" benefit the business world?
3D tablets could be of real value for gamers,
with Nintendo predicting sales of 4 million units worldwide within a few weeks of
the launch of the Nintendo 3DS. So there is a market for 3D tablets in the
consumer market, but I’m still struggling to understand how they’ll integrate
this technology into the business sector.
And won't it be competing with the 3D
TV market, which never really took off? The whole point of 3D TV’s were to
transform the viewer so they were part of the show/game/event/environment. At
just 8.9inches, I can’t imagine UK pubs buying 3D tablets for their consumers to
watch football. The education sector may benefit from new ways of teaching and
learning, but since the RRP was not included in LG’s
press release, I’m expecting it to be beyond their budget.
So I’m still stumped to understand how 3D tablets will
improve business, and would be interested to hear your thoughts.
