Sharp was really on a roll today with SoftBank’s Fall/Spring 2011 lineup debut. They introduced a mixture of traditional keitai phones as well as some cutting-edge smartphones.
The Softbank 005SH really caught my eye. I can’t stress enough how much I love the angular design of the phone. It’s somewhat reminiscent of the SH-04A which was a very successful smartphone-esque keitai.
The main difference between the “Galapagos” 003SH and the 005SH is the slide-out keyboard. For someone that dislikes software keyboards like me, this is a great addon.
Android 2.2 looks very good on the Sharp Mobile ASV LCD display with AQUOS technology.
The model on the left is the 003SH while the one on the right is the 005SH.
To make the phone slimmer, the engineers had to compromise the camera sensor size and quality. Instead of the 9.6MP CCD sensor, the 005SH carries a 8.0MP CMOS sensor. Still capable of 720p HD recording, though.
