Sharp returns to the Euro market with the 3D Aquos PHONE SH80F
The Japanese electronics manufacturer Sharp is about to make a return to the European cell phone market. The announcement was jointly delivered by Sharp itself, Orange France and NTT DOCOMO.
Sharp is obviously taking this thing seriously as the first smartphone they are going to release in Europe is looking smoking hot. Dubbed Sharp Aquos PHONE SH80F (we know, a bit of a mouthful) the Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone comes with a glasses-free 3D screen and stereo cameras that allow you to capture your own stereoscopic content.
The Sharp Aquos PHONE SH80F LCD measures 4.2" in diagonal and has qHD resolution. The two 8 megapixel cameras can do 1080p video in 2D mode or 720p in 3D, while the VGA front-facing camera enables video-chatting.
Sharp Aquos PHONE SH80F has quite a lot to offer in terms of connectivity, too. You get 3G with HSPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, Infrared and HDMI as well as a microSD card slot.
There's a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset inside this droid, which sports a 1.4 GHz Scorpion CPU (single-core we assume).
If you are interested and you are lucky enough to be living in France, you will be able to get the Sharp AQUOS PHONE SH80F from Orange for €199 with a €59/month contract. Sharp has also said that it's possible that this beauty hits other countries, but it didn't give a timeframe for that.Source
But the Japanese Sharp phones don't run on Android do they? Or do they? I'm not sure

I think this phone has been in Japan for years now. Their tech is advance like 10 years ahead. Before 4G hits in the US or all over the world, they already had it. Japan's quality is very reliable. Simple design but monster within.
