Mobilmaster, I am that user from youtube... I think I found the article. It's the one that says "Sharp, one of NEC’s main competitors, also intends to release smartphones in Europe – its goal is to sell 4 million devices outside Japan this year.", right??
I wonder what is the source of that?!?! And I wonder to if sharp will sell again in exclusive for vodafone??

I think Sharp can be successful in Europe too, we will see, I especially like Japanese phone a lot!

Hi-tech is not anything special anymore, it is expected. Touch phones are expected in Europe and you can expect that that is what SHARP will produce.
Symbian OS as such was only used for their DoCoMo phones and not the "Symbian" you would expect (nothing like Nokia).
Forget 3x optical zoom, they abandoned that apprach after the 910SH didn't deliver.
SHARP is unknown in Europe, and with touch-only devices on the rise will struggle to sell flip-phones when Touch is the new "flip".
Trust me, I would hope the same - I owned a GX20 and GX30, 802SH, 903SH, SH905i and N905i... I love my flip-phones. But the truth is - Japan is Japan, Europe is Europe.
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2009Even if SHARP will be selling phones in Europe again, it won't be anything like the Japanese. ... moreSorry, but you are wrong, Sharp has expectations from Europe, believe me people will buy their products, imagine if Sharp will make a phone with 8MP CCD camera, 3x optical zoom, Symbian OS(Sharp has phones with this OS), Wifi, 3.3 inch WVGA screen, rotateble design, etc. Sharp has to make profit now, and they will "attack" Europe!!! Panasonic also will attack Europe with the Android phone!!!
Even if SHARP will be selling phones in Europe again, it won't be anything like the Japanese.
Don't get your hopes up of getting flip-phones like the 903SH again... it's not the right market.
Sharp will make smartphones for Europe, soon!!!http://www.unwiredview.com/200...y-in-europe/

say, 02 Jul 2009Sharp seems to have the technology to build competitiv phones,but they don't know how to sell ... moreSharp has phones in which you can put 16Gb memory card, Sharp is not entered in European markets with good phones, but when will enter will shake the wholw world with their advanced technology, believe me!!! I heard rumours Panasonic will enter in the global markets with Android based phones, Japan want to be present in the whole world in the mobile phone category too, not just in cars, or computers.
Sharp seems to have the technology to build competitiv phones,but they don't know how to sell them,how to promote them,or maybe the mobile phone division is not that important for them,I think that if they really want to they can do much more.....Sharp 930 SH is an interesting device but lacks the radio and the wi-fi,also the micro sd memory of 4G shold be bigger,8 g at least,also it needs a better battery
Anonymous, 24 Jun 2009no wifi, garbage battery life...need i say moreYou will see better phones from Sharp, they are the MOST advanced on Earth, they have phones with 10MP CCD camera, Softban has a phone with XGA screen, and 3.8 inch!!! Sharp also has phones with waterproof capabilities!!! So Sharp is the BEST, and I forget Sharp has a solar power phone, and is waterproof too!!!:)Great!!!
Anonymous, 24 May 2009I want this phone too! Market it worldwide! Please!!!!!!! I hope some SHARP CEO read this! It... moreDon't worry, Sharp will enter in the European markets, now they entered in China and Taiwan, I think they will enter next year in the European markets with high-end devices. Panasonic says they will enter with Google Android devices worldvive!!! :) GREAT!!!
I want this phone too! Market it worldwide! Please!!!!!!! I hope some SHARP CEO read this!
