Only in Japan: NTT DoCoMo SH-01D unveiled with a 4.5-inch 720p display and a pack of features
Japan is the land of weird avant-grade phones and often designs, and this here NTT DoCoMo SH-01D furthers that notion with its neat rectangular design and 720p 4.5” display. All of that beauty however is running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with Android 4.0 being only a future possibility. The SH-01D is stuffed with the usual for Japan and very unusual stateside pack of features including a waterproof body for better protection, a 12.1-megapixel camera with optical stabilization and an integrated TV tuner.

Only in Japan: NTT DoCoMo SH-01D unveiled with a 4.5-inch 720p display and a pack of features
Interestingly, the Sharp-made device has the company’s AQUOS screen which improves the image quality on the screen. The display also supports 3D viewing glasses free. It’s using a parallax barrier to create the 3D effect - a feature we’ve already seen stateside on handsets like the HTC EVO 3D and the LG Thrill 4G. Under the hood, a 1GHz TI OMAP 4430 dual-core processor supports the whole experience.

The NTT DoCoMo SH-01D got announced today, but will actually arrive on Japanese shelves on December 2nd. Stateside availability? It doesn’t seem likely at all, but we can still marvel at its feature pack, can’t we?

It does not need that... its a japanese phone... they dont need iOS... they need an android because it's open to the world... then use your brain... oh wait you dont have one... buy your brain at the app store maybe they have one availabe for you isucker...

Oh.. BTW... this phone is water proof.... is your phone water proof??

No, man. I do have a brain. And I have used Android for over a year, I just do not like it and the whole Giggle approach to it. Besides it is 99% copied from iOS. Or maybe you think that Apple and Microsoft started all these patent wars just for fun? Whoever likes Android, buy it. For me it is crap.

Its not only about freedom of speech its about freedom to do what hell i want to my phone!..........I wanna pimp my phone the best way it can be pimped. and the only whore of a phone that does the job well is Android.


I remember the dayz of Bestbuy when i was told \"as leader of the Geeksquad\" make sure all Iphones sold come to you to be bricked before it gets into the customers hands! From that day on i was force to be well rounded with iphone, 3gs, then 4 now no more!

Too bad no one cares whether Android sucks or not, evidently the market share is crushing iOS and WP7 isn't even on the radar.

What's really sad though is that this phone will never have a decent dev community.
