The Sharp Aquos Pad SH-08E made its debut as the newest 7-inch Android tablet available through NTT DoCoMo. It comes pre-loaded with Android 4.2 and equipped with a 1920×1200 pixel resolution 7-inch IGZO display.
Imagine a handset that packs a big display and fast processor, yet still offers enough power efficiency to make it through two days of use. That’s exactly what the newly announced Sharp AQUOS Phone 206SH sets out to accomplish.
According to industry sources, a number of display manufacturers are developing 6 inch smartphone display panels for use in handsets later this year.
You might not remember this, but HTC was not the sole Full HD phone road-opener, with Sharp unveiling a 1080p device very early as well.
Samsung has gained a 3% stake in Sharp for 10.4 million yen or $112 million USD. With this deal, Samsung has gained access to Sharp’s IGZO technology. What does this mean for you?
We’ve already seen a bevy of leaks concerning the HTC M7, but there’s one issue that is a bit controversial – the display technology.
Currently, the best way to stream YouTube videos to your TV is using applications on hardware like Xbox 360 and Google TV boxes. The latest generation of TVs to be announced in 2013 will be able to do it on their own.
We’ve certainly seen a heap of 1080p smartphones getting teased, leaked or unveiled in recent history, but as far as devices you can actually buy the HTC J Butterfly (aka Droid DNA) is still the single officially released device.
Qualcomm inked a deal with Sharp earlier this week that says they’ll own as much as 5% of the company if the Japanese display maker can get back to good health. According to Retuers, Hon Hai, better known as Foxconn, is still interested in investing in Sharp, despite the fact that Foxconn signed a deal with the American chip designer.
Qualcomm, the chip designer, has allegedly agreed to purchase 5 billion Japanese yen worth of Sharp stock. That’s roughly $61 million or about 2.6% of the company. Now we know what you’re thinking, why is Qualcomm getting in the screen business? They’re actually not, they just want to make sure that Sharp stays afloat.
