    McLaren is vaporware, nobody knows if/when MS will ever release a 3D Touch phone.

    The Amazon 3D phone is using the FFC. Microsoft's McLaren phone is using dedicated sensors to use 3D touch

    It's not vapourware.....??? It's coming out this year to the three major US carriers. Dunno what you are taking about

    Please stop spreading misleading facts. Or you will be reported

    Vaporware is not true In any way. True we do not know the exact date Microsoft will release this as they have the tendency to wait until it is ready (which is a good thing). But it does exist. Obviously you are poorly informed and as such should restrict your posts to those you have a semblance of an idea of what you are talking about.

    Hah, it's about as vaporware as Apple's big screen iphone 6.

    Sorry, you are the one spreading misleading information. Please show me where MS/Nokia have even discussed the possibility of a 3D phone.

    Obviously you are a fanboi or a paid shill who is here to prop up MS in any way possible.

    There's no real indication of the McLaren.

    WpCentral, Theverge, Engadget. Read them. Goldfinger/ McLaren rumored since last year to come with 8.1. Software not ready hence we get the Icon S(S in the apple sense).
    Also. McLaren's 3d is different from Amazons 3d. It cannot be outdated because Amazon's 3d is quite mundane to be honest.

    I agree. I think the Mclaren is a very different type of 3d. More gestures than 3d image, as far as I can remember. The McLaren is about 3d input, the Amazon phone is about 3d output. That is my understanding anyway, I could be wrong, and it may not be coming, but I think I is. The original rumour was for Goldfinger, but it has been suggested that the tech was not ready, and it appears to have been used as a test bed for the principle. The 1020 is due a replacement in the last quarter of this year, or first quarter of next. As for vapourware, I am of the opinion it isn't.

    That a series of algorithms exists, that is able to analyse a set of 2D photographs and determine if they depict a human hand, and distinguish that hand from any background (your face, the cloudy sky, whatever) is by itself already quite astonishing.

    That a series of algorithms exists, that can go even further, by not just recognising a human hand, but also deriving from a 2D image the position of a hand's index finger in 3D space is awesome stuff.

    Think about it. I wouldn't call that mundane.

    That is in fact so complicated, that we are yet unable to do it reliably, which is why a reliable solution requires more sensors than just a FFC.

    My apologies, if I got it wrong. But, the Verge suggested otherwise. I understood them to be two separate devices.

    all reportedly signed up to carry it."

    "McLaren is evidently the new nickname for what was previously called Goldfinger, or a carrier variance.

    Indeed I have heard that the next flagship will not be an AT&T exclusive as well, with McLaren/Goldfinger launching in November. "

    One says one thing, the other suggests another. As my loyalty lies with WPC, I will take their opinion over the Verge. Not that it matters. Either way, something good is coming November time, and we win.
