Featured: Are 3D Phones a Fad?

When 3D first started gaining momentum in cinemas back in the mid-noughties, everybody said it wouldn't last; 'It's just a fad!' Well, that might still hold true, but we're sitting in 2012 and 3D cinema is still going strong, with both Titanic and Beauty and the Beast being re-released to cinemas in 3D this April.
