This really sounds like a solution in search of a problem. My take on 3D is that its lifetime in any given incarnation is limited to a few years before it gets ditched: 3D for your cell or other mobile device sounds like something you are just desperate to live without. Besides this, will a 2D to 3D conversion produce much more than headaches? That will be determined by how well it's done. Last weekend I saw the latest of the Narnia flicks in 3D. Unlike CG flicks, this (mostly) live-action movie would have been improved by ditching the 3D since it added so little. Of course, if you see the film, your mileage may vary. I wish this company luck; I wish even more that they'd attack something a little more important.

Its a genius move! No other company has such a bold vision into the future capabilities of the low power hand-held devices.

A gambit is also a gamble because it's done in the hope of winning :-)

Depends on the cost but I would go for it if it's reasonable.

A gambit is a chess move. Or did you mean gamble?

I think the gamble is worth the trouble. The future is mobile and I think it is a nice strategy.

Dialog's aggressive moves into a variety of growth areas are fascinating. Dialog's CEO insists, though, what tie everything together is that the company is there to serve low-power, mobile devices.

Personally, I wouldn't (because I am a cheap skate). But we would all have to note that this will be a clear, visible differentiator. How cool would that be if you can show off your mobile can do 3D, while your friends' phones can't!

Interesting development...the key question is whether the consumers would buy 3D mobile, glass-free displays...let's a quick poll here, who would buy one? Kris
