Sharp treats us to a waterproof 16MP Android clamshell in 3D
Prepare to feast your geeky souls on one of the hottest Android devices you have ever seen. Sharp has just unveiled the waterproof AQUOS PHONE THE HYBRID 007SH (a mouthful indeed) with a 16 megapixel camera and a 3.4” FWVGA stereoscopic display that doesn’t need glasses to work.
The Android 2.3 Gingerbread clamshell (yeah, you read that one right) sports GSM and WCDMA connectivity so it should be able to operate on networks worldwide. Unfortunately, the handset will initially only be available in Japan and knowing Sharp we doubt they will expand its reach, ever.
Anyway, with the AQUOS 007SH you will also be getting a 0.7” secondary OLED display as well as GPS, Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity. There’s also an infrared port on board - a feature that’s still pretty popular in Japan.
The highlights list continues with a microSD slot that allows expanding the internal memory by up to 32 GB, 720p video recording, digital TV tuner and a microHDMI port. The waterproof body of the smartphone measures 113×51.8×19.3mm, which is pretty thick, but it only weighs 140 g.
The AQUOS PHONE THE HYBRID 007SH will become available at SoftBank shops in Japan next month.
i saw someone talking about symbian before. Symbian was actually the main operating system for all phones previous to all the ones now. Nokia with it's symbian software dominated the market overseas. Too bad no one really knows about that over her...

there's no doubt this phone will make it to the US but it will be watered down just like everything else just so that they can make th market fair for already existing companies
