As expected, Sharp IS03 became available on au by KDDI. This Android 2.1 powered smartphone comes with three interesting features – e-wallet function, infrared and one-seg digital TV broadcasts.
“When looking at cases with other carriers, many customers have regular cell phones and use smart phones as a second phone. So some users would naturally think that it would be nice if one phone takes care of everything,” KDDI Senior Vice President Takashi Tanaka told reporters in Tokyo’s Yurakucho district.
Sharp IS03 will feature a 9.6 megapixel CCD camera with autofocus , and 960×640-resolution 3.5-inch touchscreen along with a monochromatic “memory LCD” for displaying the time or new notifications.
The update to Android 2.2 is on cards for a later date.
