It certainly seems surprising that the two cameras are not at opposite ends of the phone to maximize the viewing angle difference. Is this because designers seek to prevent user's hands from blocking a lens as they hold the phone camera? Do I correctly read between the lines that the phone processor is computationally exaggerating the 3D effect from the slight spacing of the camera lenses (and therefore doesn't need a greater separation)?

First of all, great idea. I hope this becomes the standard. But why not spread the two cameras out to more reasonable distance? It would be useful for microscopes and binoculars, as well as giving a more realistic depth perception.

3D has a cool factor. The more 3D capturing devices are sold; the better chance a 3DTV will thrive. What would be your considerations to get a 3D ready smartphone?

True. So you need lenticular displays. Even if you were to consider 3-D with glasses (LCD/LED TV kinds), the display has to be capable to stereoscopy through optical polarization or through sampling images for left and right eyes synchronized to a shutter mechanism on the glasses. A lot more than just software.

Does it mean that the present LCDs being used in the Mobile Phones does not support 3D Displaying? I think there must be some mistake as most of the LCD TVs and LED TVs are 3D Display Capable, so the Phone LCDs as well should be able to display 3D Images. The software support might be a bottleneck.

Zelentek have a 3D camera design for handsets that's worth looking at
