That's pretty amazing tbh but that phone looks pretty ugly, maybe the odd color.

Awesome !! .. There should be more & more display tech like IGZO replacing today's power hungry screens. I would like to see it in real to check the sunlight legibility, color reproduction and so on.

Good work .. Sharp !!

That pad looks pretty nice.. however, ditch the glossy plastic please! A rubberized coating of some kind would be very very nice.

Galaxy line in Sharp phone. Apple will sue Sharp for using Apple paid display technology. Now Apple must look for other display makers.

Honestly, I hope iPhones don't hog up all the supply. I'd love to see this in an LG, Moto, Sony, or HTC Android phone.

Nokia is not innovative, right? Funny how the rest of the pack follow Nokia and copy their idea of OIS.
But, unfortunatelly, neither htc nor sharp have never done anything decent in camera department (maybe except mytouch4g)
They can put all these tech in a device but it doesn't mean that the results will be exceptional.
