Unfortunately, school is driving me crazy already... so it will take a little longer to make sure everything's running properly >__<

Great article goldenface!

Alright, I do write posts, just not on blogs but on facebook instead =P Anyways here's the latest note (or what I call "scribble") about the SH8010C annoucement:

SH8010C

5 (not so hot) models holding 5 different colours of the Sharp-China's newest phone, the SH8010C, in the Four Seasons Hotel of Shanghai and the Grand Hyatt of Beijing. This phone is based on the bright and vibrant Japanese PANTONE SLIDE 825SH by the phone carrier Softbank.



The phone comes in five bright colours, namely Black, Velvet Bronze, Deep Violet, Peach Pink, as well as White [I'm making up these names]. A large [wait for it...] 2.8 inch AQUOS anti-reflective QVGA LCD panel display. Sliding opening the slider, you'll see a large keypad and your navigation pad. What's interesting about Sharp sliders is Sharp likes to put their navigation pads inside rather than outside. While it looks a lot nicer, there's no way you can operate the phone (not to my knowledge) without having to slide open the phone. No biggie considering you will be having one of the most unique phones >=P On the back is the 2.0 megapixel camera with autofocus (and what looks to be a flash).



The SH8010C does have an accelerometer built inside the phone, which turns the orientation of the display from Portrait to Landscape. Shaking the phone when in different menus activate a few nifty features. MotionControl is also included in the JAVA games. =D



Software wise, it's incredibly similar to the SH9010C (the amazing flip phone). I would expect the entertainment player to include a variety of Equalizers including Karaoke, which manages to fizzile out the voices of the singers (pretty well too). I would also expect the SH8010C to have Picsel browser, which allows you to view word documents, excel spreadsheets, powerpoint presentations, and PDF files.



The MicroSD slot (not sure if it's HDSD) allows you to further expand on the 50 mb built in memory. Stand features such as bluetooth, Video Calling (doesn't work in Canada unfortunately), Infrared Port (though many phones nowadays don't have it), etc. are also present.



The interface of Sharp phones are incredibly simple to use. It's actually pretty similar to Sony Ericsson phones (which is revolutionary for ease and simplicity [back when the iPhone wasn't out at least]). You have the two softkeys, which correspond to the ones on the screen. Below the left softkey is the Multi-Task key, which allows you to run multiple applications, like the Activity Menu on Sony Ericsson phones. The entertainment shortcut key is located below the right shortcut key which gives you access to Music, Games, Videos, Live TV (does not work in Canada), etc. The Call and End (also power) key sandwiches the back/clear key, which is something they got rid of with Sony Ericsson's new phones (STUPID DECISION!!!!)

Alright... let's get down to the price. HAHA the last Sharp phone I wrote about, everyone flipped when they saw the price XD Though Sharp did not mention anything, I would expect the phone to be between $450-$550 CDN, which is much cheaper than the other Sharp SH9010C phone (which is $700 CDN). Not unreasonably expensive: when my phone was out, it was $400... considering this one has way better features, it's not too too bad... Even though I'm a fan of flip phones, the SH9010C is really too pricey so I'm actually considering this one... =)

Too bad they didn't release an Aqua Blue... lately I have an obsession with blue phones... but white is fine for me too =D When the phone is open, it exposes a not so nice surface, similar to LG, Moto, and Nokia looks... I wonder when companies will make the insides look just as nice on the outside like Sony Ericsson sliders (no slide tracks, screws, etc.).

Enjoy more pictures:

923SH (sharp) Softbank:

Highlights:
- 3.3" AQUOS Cycloid Rotating Screen
- 5.2 mp autofocus camera w/ LED Flash
- External OLED Screen
- Triband/WCDMA
- Touch Cruiser Touchpad (navigation centre confirm key is a touchpad to control mouse navigation throughout phone including browser)

Currently, a unlocked version is about $750 CDN/ 500 EUROS (originally a lot more expensive). Not sure if it's fully unlocked or partially. If the price just lowers a little more, I want a blue one =)

Nice to see this going somewhere guys!

Also nice to see 923SH, with it's WVGA screen, and that tiny 790mAh battery, which powers it......

And many on here argue that WVGA screens are too much power drain - then how can this device even run, on that little power??

Oo, any info on FOMA STICK NEXT??......

Hi!

great thread ! I am looking forward to following this !

keitaidenwa - 携帯電話 けいたいでんわ is an interesting word.

the first two characters - keitai 携帯 can mean ' to carrying something in the hand '

The first character is used in the verb - tazusaeru 携える たずさえる to carry in one's hand,

The second character is also used in the verb - obiru 帯びる おびる (1) to wear (sword, decoration, etc.), to carry, (2) to be entrusted (e.g. with a mission), to take on, (3) to have a trace of, to be tinged with,

Interestingly, this character can also be read as obi and is a noun. 帯 おび which is the name for the sash worn around the waist with a kimono.

The third and fourth are denwa 電話 mean electricity 電 and talk ( or tale ) 話 so it is like electricity talk !

The verb hanasu 話す はなす means to speak.

Got you all bored now back to reading the news from Japan !

Latest rumors that the next SH907i from DoCoMo will be a flip phone (oh how obvious...) with a 8.1 megapixel camera. Hopefully Sharp actually uses a different camera module this time... Sharp used to have the world's best cameras in their phones with a CCD sensor... their last 903SH was the first 3.2 megapixel camera with a 3x optical zoom.
