Sharp-Aquos-SH8298U-back

LG has the Optimus 3D and HTC has the EVO 3D–both smartphones featuring glasses-free 3D display and 3D image capture. Add to that Sharp’s recently announced glasses-free 3D smartphone, the Sharp Aquos Phone SH8298U. Sharp announced last week its next 3D-capable Android smartphone after the Sharp Lynx 3D. The Sharp Aquos Phone SH8298U has a 4.2-inch glasses-free 3D display with qHD (960×540) resolution. The glasses-free 3D display enables the user to view 3D content without using specialized eyewear. A single-core, 1.4-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 processor powers Android 2.3 Gingerbread, along with 2 gigabytes of internal storage and 512 MB of…

Sharp-Galapagos-A01SH-back-side

The Galapagos line is a pretty impressive line of tablets from Sharp. The Japanese manufacturer has already released the Sharp Galapagos 5.5 inch and 10.8 inch tablets, but it seems they aren’t satisfied with just two. The company is planning to fill the gap between the two tablets by releasing the new Sharp Galapagos A01SH. It’s another Android tablet that’s got a decently sized 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display. This can make the device a decent e-reader and a good media/video player for when you’re on the go. So what exactly does the Sharp A01SH bring to the…

Sharp seems to be readying another one of their entries into the tablet wars. A first look at a 7-inch Android tablet which will be marketed under its Galapagos brand name is already available. The 7-inch size comfortably puts it in between Sharp’s other offerings in the tablet market, which are at 5.5- and 10.8-inches respectively. It’s already undergoing review at the FCC – though the details are a bit sketchy. The only confirmed bit of data is that it will come with a WiFi-radio. This means that the upcoming Android tablet will probably be not packing 3G/4G radio –…

Sharp’s Galapagos Android tablets look quite swish if you ask us. There are two types, the 5.5-inch and 10.8-inch versions. Both are set to land in Japan on December 10th and pre-orders will be accepted a week beforehand, on December 3rd. There are two pieces of bad news to accompany this information. First, we still have no clue or word as to whether or not this device is going to land in Europe or America any time soon. We can only assume that as the Japanese release date approaches, that a worldwide one does too. Unfortunately, the second piece of…

Sharp have been hard at work recently working on a number of Android powered devices including an Android smartphone and a couple of tablets too. The tablets run by the name of “Galapagos“, the same name used for their cloud e-book service, while the smartphone continues the S10x naming scheme; S103. The two tablets are optimized for e-book style content and magazines, but are marketed as media-tablets because they allow users to play certain games and view PC documents too. Both support Sharp’s aforementioned e-book service and are available in 5.5-inch and 10.8-inch varieties. The 5.5-inch tablet provides a resolution…

Sharp are set to team up with a large Japanese carrier to bring the two following Android based devices to market; the JN-DK01 and the IS01. In effect, this is the same device, but the the JN-DK01 is supposed to be a developer’s edition of the Iso1. This JN-DK01 may then be used to make alterations to the device and the OS. The specifics on this device are fairly grey at the moment both in terms of what Android OS it will run and whether it will come Googled-up with the host of application such as Maps and Mail. The…

Mobile Crunch are putting two and two together and concluding that Softbank, Japan’s third largest carrier, is going to release Sharp manufactured Android feature device next year. So let’s break it down and put the pieces together ourselves. First, SoftBank announce that they will launch at least one Android device in 2010. More details are promised next month when the company announce their new range of devices. Following directly on from this announcement, Sharp spilled the beans and mentioned that it will release a yet to be established number of Android based devices in 2010, starting as early as the…

It appears that as part of its push into the smartphone markets in the U.S. and Europe, Japanese manufacturer Sharp is considering Android. “We select the OS in accordance with the telecommunications carriers’ opinions, and we have no intention of setting any OS as standard. Google’s Android is one of the options.” This is not to say that Sharp will use Android, though.  The company was quick to say that it might also roll out its own Linux based smartphone OS. “We have acquired Linux technology through, for instance, the development of the Zaurus.  It is possible that we will…
