The Japanese have always had a thing for flipphones and clamshells and despite over the years, the rest of the world have moved on with full touchscreens, the Japs remain fond of the retro design. Its therefore not entirely unexpected that Sharp and Softbank of Japan have together rolled out the new AQUOS Android phone “The Hybrid 007SH”.
To be sold via Softbank only in Japan, the 007SH Android 2.3 clamshell packs a decent punch. It is unique in the sense that it comes with everything you would need and want. A waterproof body, a six-megapixel sensor camera with autofocus and flash, a 3.4” WVGA 3D capable touchscreen that is also capable of 180-degree turn, there is also 720p video recording capability, AQUOS TV connector, WiFi plus Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity.
If you’re not from Japan, unfortunately you’re pretty much out of luck. If you are, this is absolutely the phone to look forward to.
