Here, an Optimus 3D's display is enough to convince a client to order a luxury sedan. The image is, of course, simulated--don't expect 3D images to extend beyond the screen.

LG took great pains to argue its 8.9-inch Optimus Pad is a better size than the Samsung Galaxy Tab's 7-inch display or the Apple iPad's 10.4-inch display. The Optimus Pad can be held with one hand, is convenient for typing with thumbs in a portrait orientation, and is not cramped for using all the fingers in a landscape orientation.

Daniel Hernandez, director of product marketing for LG in Europe, tried but failed to demonstrate the LG Optimus Pad's video chat abilities. It worked fine in the rehearsals, of course. Perhaps the rehearsals omitted a few hundred journalists, many saturating the room with signals from MiFi devices to blog the event.
