TO JON DUDE:
Jonny, honestly to me it's a very goodlooking phone. The only thing coud be better if the externa caller ID screen would be larger.
I don't care that this phone is for JAPAN ONLY. It has GSM 900/1800/1900, so it will work everywhere on T-Mobile USA (the hell with ATT/CINGULAR and their 850 B.S.)
To Timmy or whoever may know...Do you think that it will be possible to flash the 904 firmware to the 903...I'd consider that only unless a 905 drops with a better camera or wifi or something major in terms of improvement.
I only would want the face recognition other than that it is the 903 with a better screen (which really isn't something that I was complaining about considering the 903 screen is bright as I've seen on a screen)
To Kyle Dude:
I dont mind if the phone is big as long it is at least a good looking one and its size is justified by its specs. From the specs of this phone you cant expect it to be slimmer. But can you honestly tell me that this is a good looking phone??And will it have the same features in UK as the ones that are going to be available in japan??
Pixels do not decide size... Its quality, which is 16*22cm, so if mobile phone has 4*5 cm it means it has 17 times better display than SE t610 eller similar...
"37 x 48 mm" there must be a very small error in one of theese numbers, or the pixels are non-quadratic.
Even including rounding theese numbers can't be 3:4 ratio. Could be 36x48 or 37x49 though
(higest number rounding to 48 is less 48.5, 48.5 * 3/4=36,375 rounds to 36)
Sorry for the double post forgot the link :) http://www.proff-design.com/FUD/index.php?t=msg&th=149&start=0&S=d4d13f856362327f51854ad39c95aac0
Hey check out this review and pics cant wait hope it can be unlocked, love my 903 but really want to get this one, the USA phones suck compared to these Sharp phones so that is why I hope it can be unlocked.
480x640 display??? somebody explain me this!! it would be like 16cm x 22cm i don´t rhink so can somebody explain me???!!!
YEAH, CUT THE CRAP ABOUT PHONE'S SIZE.
You want a small phone?
THEN BUY PANASONIC'S X300 , so you can enjoy the rediculous small keypad!
Or buy Sony k750, or new LG phone
It will take you a minute to dial any #.
I doubt that this specific phone will go on sale outside of Japan. So many of the phones features are for use in Japan only (such as GPS & FeliCa). Living in Japan and owning a FeliCa mobile, it is a fantastic feature that I use to it full potential. However, it requires significant investment from other, non-network companies to make it successful; something I doubt would happen outside of Japan.
My guess would be that a scaled back version (without Japan-specific features) would be more likely to go on sale in the rest of the world as Vodafone surely will be dying to get this VGA phone out as a 'look at me' flagship phone to stick it to all the other networks!
I am curious about the face recognition...I have the 903sh in the U.S. and considering how hard they have made getting new 903's unlocked i can imagine how hard it will be to find one of these unlocked...
TO JON DUDE:
1)I'm sorry dude for you, but this phone has a very normal phone's size (means loud sound quality and convinient keypad!)
2) For most people in Asia and in Britain (this phone will be mainly in Asia an Britain) , the large phone size is normal. Only for most europeans, and especially for american kids, the normal phone size doesn't look normal
Take a look here, there is a possible 905 type phone already out(the one at the bottom of the page) although it look kind of big but so do those pda phones....
i think is ugly, very ugly. and still too big. it would be great if the new sharp had these spec and would also be smaller and more attractive than this.the 903 has better looks
904SH will come out at Japan on beginning of April.
The 904SH’s VGA LCD had four times the resolution of current QVGA LCDs, making it possible to reduce visuals and render small characters with more vividness and clarity than before
The main features of 904SH are as follows:
-First mobile headset with VGA LCD AND leading-edge spec: 3.2 megapixel autofocus 2X optical zoom camera and stereo speakers that support 3D surround sound.
-Support new service and feature: Bluetooth communication, applications for newly-developed motion control sensor, Vodafone k.k.’s first Face Recognition.
-Flagship model that fully support exiting 3G service like Vodafone live! Felica for e-money and e-ticketing and Vodafone live! NAVI for GPRS navigation
hello...y have the 903..and it is the best.i think the 904 it will be better ..the best!!!
Im about to cry? i thought that the 904SH was gonna be better than 903?? 903 looks 10X better! :(
There is a 905 confirmed going to be released this year. I own a 903 and I'm dissappointed that the camera is still the same. If you already own a 903, I suggest to wait for the 905. It should at least come w/4megapixels hopefully.
