All AT&T users will be pleased to hear that new phone from Sharp will be added to the carrier’s lineup. The latest addition will have AT&T’s Mobile TV service included. Besides Mobile TV service, Sharp FX will have plenty of multimedia features to offer.
However, rather annoyingly (and unlike Sharp) it appears to have a poor, low res camera making you think as to what AT&T actually wants the phone to offer its users apart from being just a phone and watching TV.
Sharp FX is a 3-inch touchscreen display phone that is using 400 x 240 pixel resolution. Besides that, this phone comes with QWERTY keyboard and with 2-megapixel camera and camcorder. Phone comes with 80 MB of internal storage space but it can be easily expanded by using microSD / TransFlash cards. As for available networks Sharp FX is using GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz, UMTS 850/1900/2100MHz and GPRS/EDGE/WCDMA/HSDPA. Connectivity on the hand has GSM and Bluetooth 2.1 support.
TheSharp FX houses a 1,240mAh battery that can provide you ten days of standby and three hours of talk time. Besides decent hardware specs this phone can offer several interesting services as well. First there’s AT&T Address Book that adds all of your contacts to online address book that you can easily sync with your PC. Besides that, there’s att.net mobile browser that has full HTML support and AT&T Navigator that provides directions and 3D maps. Most interesting feature however is AT&T Mobile TV that allows you to enjoy in many popular TV channels for only $9.99 a month.
Sharp FX is an interesting phone and if you want to experience its features you’ll be able to do that for $99.99 after mail-in rebate on July 25th.
