It's a shame that SHARP doesn't get more attention on GSMARENA. Even though most handsets are only available in Japan, they ARE still GSM/HSDPA handsets. So I think they deserve the same attention as the others. Sure, it's harder to get a hold of them, but MOBILEBURN get a hold of them too occasionally.

I still think that these handsets are way more competetive than the rest and people should know about it.

Nokia still had things like camera's smaller than VGA (CIF, 352 x 288 pixels) and pitiful 128 x 128 pixels, CSTN 4096 colour screens (7210i, 6610i)

Sharp is a company that innovates, a leader not a follower.

OOO wait Sharp isn't pathetic. They uild off the chinese market, after all they are #1 in Japan and ruled Nokia where they hoped to get 30% marrket share. Read up the facts buddy, you have a lot of back tracking to do, your imaginary super professional phone isn't here yet.

Most of SHARP's dedicated camera phones are/used to be CCD. GX20/30, 802, 902, 903, 904, 910SH all had CCD modules and also produced some of the best pictures ever.
910SH wasn't all that great though as I think they didn't get the zoom lense right. 3x optical zoom had it's flaws somewhere...

Glad they are back to CCD!

the A3 size print that this phone has produced is impressive, I saw it on the offical release day news, good specs too after I read it, you get all these in a flip style, man how far away are we behind J phones, anyway glad it's out in china and possibly I can use it in Australia now
