Launch periods were certainly not mentioned, with Sharp only saying products with the displays would go on sale when they're ready. smartphone parallax barrier
These phones have parallax barriers, which is a layer placed in front of the display to allow it to show a stereoscopic image (meaning a 3D image) without the need for those dorky 3D glasses (see image at right).
The bottom sheet is used as a spacer between the pixels and your parallax barrier. The top sheet simply protects the barrier. A thicker spacer will give you a narrower field of view, but more denselypacked angular resolution. The smartphone glassesfree tech made its first appearance back in October during FPD!
