Amazon 3D Smartphone Rumors
Various sources report that Amazon is working on a 3D smartphone to be released before end of 2013. More or less similarly to LG, Amazon's device is supposed to use "retina-tracking technology" to make images appear to be hovering above the surface of the screen from all angles, without requiring special glasses. So, it is not completely clear if the new phone will have a 3D autostereoscopic screen, or if images will be re-rendered in real time in 2D while following the user's head and eye movements.

Sanwa iPhone Stereoscope
The Sanwa (Japan) 400-CAM021 Stereoscope turns your iPhone into sort of a 3D View Master, allowing you to watch YouTube stereoscopic movies and side-by-side stereoscopic pairs.
The 400-CAM021 turns the iPhone into a big-screen 3D TV as the image viewed through the device is the same you may enjoy on a 60 inches 3DTV screen seen from 10 feet away. However, the resolution is a tad lower than on TV as the iPhone 4's Retina display gives you only 480(W) by 640 (H) pixels per eye; the iPhone has to share its 960 pixels per horizontal line between both eyes.
