RIM to launch 3D capable BlackBerry handset in 2011?

BlackBerry to join 3D bandwagon

RIM, the Canadian force behind the BlackBerry brand, is reportedly preparing a 3D touting mobile handset to launch in 2011 following its acquisition of Swedish company The Astonishing Tribe.

Whilst currently nothing more than rumour and speculation, the news of the extra dimensional bragging BlackBerry sees RIM join the 3D mobile bandwagon currently occupied by the likes of Apple, HTC and the already produced Sharp 3D pocket blower.

Having purchased The Astonishing Tribe (TAT) earlier in the year, a company specialising in 3D user interfaces, it is believed that a 2011 available BlackBerry handset will feature a screen capable of 3D video playback, 3D gaming and a new breed of 3D enhanced applications.

With a largely business-based client pool, it remains to be seen whether RIM’s current clientele would be the intended target market for the company’s expected 3D smartphones. HTC and Apple are both believed to be working on 3D technologies ahead of next year with Android and iOS devices expected to be on the receiving end of an extra dimensional makeover.

Would you want a 3D smartphone or would it be an unnecessary, pointless adition to an already overcrowded device? Share your thoughts and opinions with us via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
