by Dhiram Shah

The mystery phone which made appearance at the Windows Mobile Japanese Edition press conference is finally official. The Sharp WS011SH sports a sliding full QWERTY keyboard and is powered by a Marvell PXA 270 processor at 520 Mhz along with 256MB of flash memory and 128MB of ROM. The icing on the cake is the super crisp 3.0 inch touchscreen which supports WVGA resolution (800 x 480). Unlike any other Windows Mobile powered phone this one comes with a trackpad, on the dial is XCrawl a small touch sensitive joystick to which the onscreen pointer corresponds. Other features include 1.3 Megapixel camera (yuck), Micro SD card slot, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Mini USB and GPS. It undoubtedly runs on Windows Mobile 6.0 and comes preloaded with Opera, Pocket Office suite and Google maps. The WS011SH’s Lithium Ion battery provides 420 minutes of talktime and 500 hours of standby time.

    but it’s a willcom phone?
    while it may be good for connecting to the internet, email, and navigation/gps… probably not much more than that…
    the phs carrier doesn’t exactly have the best quality of reception or talk quality…

    It’s perfect!!! It’s a pity that this device is not for GSM network.

    The quality of Willcoms’s PHS network is far superior to the barn-yard scratchings quality of the othe providers in Japan, plus the PHS phones are the only one’s permissible for use in hospitals. I have only used PHS for the past 9 years and wouldn’t go near the others…NTT does not get a yen from me that I can just as well give to another.
