Nintendo don’t have a lot of competition when it comes to portable gaming devices with their new 3DS making waves as the hottest new gadget to have, but Intel and Nokia may soon be hot on their heels with a 3D ready mobile phone. Get ready to cash your mobile for a 3D upgrade!

The two companies have announced that they are collaborating in a research partnership at the University of Oulu in Finland. Their research lab had been named the Joint Innovation Centre and forms part of the University’s Center for Internet Excellence.

Intel, the processor manufacturer from California, and Nokia, one of the world’s leading mobile phone makers, will be working together on a research project aimed at using “graphical 3D technology to create immersive mobile interfaces.”

It’s in a similar vein to how Nintendo’s 3DS works, but on a mobile phone platform. They will be discovering how to develop a phone which incorporates 3-dimensional technology without the use of glasses.

Portable gaming has become big business since the advancement of mobile phones and many use their smartphones to play games which has pushed Nintendo to develop something new and innovative to draw people back to their devices. Apple’s iPhone has many gaming apps which are incredibly popular, and if Nokia and Intel can develop a 3D phone to rival the 3DS Nintendo will have to come up with another unique selling point to keep ahead of the game.

For those who don’t like the weight of carrying both a phone and handheld gaming device, the possibility of having a combined 3D gadget could be a saviour. Don’t forget you can recycle mobile phones AND sell gaming consoles with Mobile Phone Xchange.
