A year ago we had a discussion about if it would catch fire and many felt it was not a good idea. I personally said it was a gimmick and expected more oems to follow through. Boy was I wrong. The reality I think is the technology didnt have enough devices that could take advantage of the software. Htc took a gamble trying to jump out in front of the 3d race expecting it to jump off with the tvs and computers. The reality is 3d tvs are not selling, people would rather spend the extra money to get a larger tv or a smart tv. The 3d phone has been relegated to non-contract carriers and htc took a loss on that idea. What has taken off is the ability to see more of the background/area, with features like panoramic and sphere (circle) camera we are able to see more and you can still view it on any computer, laptop, phone, tablet.
So what other gimmicks that oems put out the past few years that was one and done?
