  • Don't get me wrong, I think 3D technology is great, I LOVE it, it's just that I think it's a gimmick and most definitely a gimmick in a mobile phone.

    I will bet £500 that Apple will not release a 3D phone in the next 5 years if EVER.

    Wanna take the bet?

  • I'm not sure about the 'gimmick' part. 3D is as old as I am (and that's old) but now it's seems to be getting a little more serious.

    The bet is a little easy isn't it? Of course Apple won't do anything 3D in the next 5 years, they will start with that when everyone else has tried it first (après garde... :roll: :twisted: ).

  • I think there are more rumours about Apple products on the Internet than all the other companies put together.

    My offer of the bet stands :-)

    And I stand by my views on 3D too :-) a flash in the pan....again!

    Let me think about it.... for 5 years :lol:

    Yeah sure... :mrgreen:

    Edit: of course I can easily take the bet. You pay me 500 bucks if I'm right and you'll get eterenal fame when you're right ok?

  • I'm not in it for the fame...i'm all about the cold, hard cash! ;-) so no deal :)

    I think if 3D was gonna take off it would have done so by now. There was a BIG push last year to get the product out there but there's been a lacklustre response. It's just not to the liking of your average Joe in the street. It's got failure written all over it.....it's a novelty.....and people get bored very quickly of novelties.

    Not sure... the 'sans glasses' makes it more interesting now. But we'll find out soon (between now and 5 years ;-)).

    I know... I myself still like Windows Mobile 6.5. :mrgreen:
