If you happen to look for a compact smartphone, then the Sharp Aquos Mini should definitely get on your radar. Released two days ago the new Sharp phone offering has been already claimed the best currently available mini. This should come as a big surprise as the handset provides a futuristic design finished with ultra-thin bezels and a package of solid specs.
What a better way to celebrate new partnership than to release a new smartphone? Probably there isn’t one and that’s what Sprint, Sharp and Japanese company Softbank thought when they set to work on the Sharp Aquos Crystal smartphone. The device was announced back in August and now is starting to make its way to stores. Prepaid Sprint and Boost Mobile have just begun selling the phone for $149.99 without contract.
Sharp has just let us in on a secret regarding its new tablet. The slate doesn’t have an official name yet, or if it does, the company didn’t reveal it yet. The device is unique in a very special aspect – it’s bearing a new mix of display technologies: Qualcomm’s Mirasol aka MEMS and Sharp’s IGZO. Used for the very first time together in one device, both technologies seem to complement each other very well.
When yesterday we reported about the announcement of the Sharp Aquos Crystal and Sprint’s upcoming “Take the edge off” event in New York, we had a feeling that the two were somehow connected. And we weren’t mistaken. Earlier today during the said event Sprint confirmed that it will be adding Sharp’s new offering to its portfolio. The phone also will be coming to Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile later this year.
Sprint may launch tomorrow the extreme Sharp Aquos Crystal phone sporting compact design with almost no bezels
Today is the day of great news in the mobile business. Firstly, we learnt about the upcoming Sprint event in New York that is scheduled for tomorrow. The event invitation says “take the edge off” and is illustrated with shimmering crystals, which in turn lead us to the second great revelation of this week, which is announcement of launching outstandingly beautiful smartphones: the Sharp Aquos Crystal and Sharp Aquos Crystal X. The first one is said to be added to the U.S carrier Sprint list of offerings. The Japanese carrier SoftBank (the one who practically owns Sprint) published a teaser video presenting the Sharp Aquos Crystal as a first smartphone with almost no bezels.
The Aquos Phone Zeta SH-02E by Sharp was scheduled to hit NTT DoC0M0 stores today. The Aquos Phone Zeta SH-02E is a high end Android smartphone boosted with 4-9-inch display enhanced by new IGZO technology, quad-core processor, and an impressive 16 megapixel camera. There is no word on whether it will launch outside Japan, and how much it costs.
