Wistron making HP and Dell 3D portables

HP's plans for a notebook with a 3D display could soon be followed by at least one and as many as three more computer makers, a Taiwan area newspaper said on Friday. The Commercial Times claims that local assembler Wistron is not only contracted by HP to build the notebooks but has been tapped by Dell to build a similar design. Talks are also reportedly underway with Lenovo and Sony as well.

What the notebooks would involve are still mostly guarded secrets, but it's been rumored in the past that the HP example would have an 18.4-inch display and use NVIDIA's GeForce 3D Vision technology, which takes a 120Hz LCD and creates two 60Hz stereoscopic images that then require 3D glasses create the final effect. Wistron's implementation supposedly uses self-developed techniques that require very little added cost compared to an existing display, suggesting that the system won't cost more than a regular notebook outside of requiring the glasses.

Release information is unknown. The earliest rumors had notebooks shipping by June, but if accurate the rumor would indicate a delay.
