vodafone kk announces 2 new 3g handsets

Vodafone kk, which is the Japanese side of Vodafone's global empire, have announced 2 new 3g handsets, the Sharp 703SH and the Sharp 903SH. The highlight is probably the 3.2 megapixel camera on the Sharp 903sh. Both models are, as the model names suggest, the next generation of the Sharp 802 and the Sharp 902.

Having a Sharp 902 myself I cant imagine how good the screen will be on the 903, the 902 is by far the best looking screen I have seen. Add to that the 3.2 megapixel camera and it all adds up to a pretty high spec imaging phone.

Flash Lite is of course supported in both models too. Although no information was given about their availablity outside Japan, its very likely they will be available sometime soon in Europe.

Sharp 902SH

I really do love this phone. Its screen is just great, it looks way better than any other mobile I have ever seen. The camera, at 2MP, means that you can get some really good quality photos. In fact my aging Sony camera, at 2MP, has just been rendered useless.

I also like the way the box has not 1 but 2 Macromedia logos on it: (taken with the 902)902_box

It has loads of other great features, including bar code scanner. So I can scan those Japanese square barcodes (QR Codes I think they are called) on a website and get the link on my phone. I can also create my own QR codes, heres a link to this site :)

The only annoying side to it is the bluetooth receiving process. If you use bluetooth a lot this really does get annoying:

calling not available during operation, OK? (yes)

Enter Handset Code: **** (ok)

received (ok)

save to pictures (yes)

saved to pictures (ok)

connection terminated (ok)

Regardless it is a great phone, and having Flash Lite available as screensaver, wallpaper and browser is really cool.
