it looks nice... but the home screen seems impractical... i mean isnt the whole point of widgets and shortcuts that they are all centrally located and you dont have to go find them... just personally i like having the normal android layout with the apptray.. but the design looks nice

Looks good .
But photos and widgets on the lock screen feels too overwhelming for me
Prefer the simplistic stock ics way

Apple will be suing Sharp next claiming that they are infringing on Apple's Rectangular Paper Napkin patent.

Now that's a nice looking skin. Upsetting Sharp doesn't send some over to the American side.

Wow, that looks pretty good. Kinda like a good mix between Android and WP.

Yes, I agree. Base on the video, it doesn't seem to have home screens rather 3 sections instead, Apps, Widgets, and Shortcuts. That's pretty damn smart that I'm surprised no one thought of. This eliminates all the clutter of having widgets and apps together on each page which is in fact unnecessary.

I've always wanted a WP for myself but thought I would miss Android completely. This brings the two together like cereal and milk. :)

When are they going to start selling this in USA? I will buy it. It looks pretty good. Except for the boxy design... but then again LaCie had the "Porsch Design Drives" that I guess sold... and it was a boxy design...

looks extremely good would love to see an international launch but correct me if im wrong, is there elements of iOS and WP7? like the widgets were set kinda looked like live tiles in a way that being said the whole UI looks awesome uncomplicated yet sophisticated i'd prefer this over most of the custom IU's that most manufacturers lay on top .... well apart from xperia UI and TouchWiz

It looks kind of fun. You have to believe it is coming to the States and other markets at some point. Very interesting, Mr Sharp. You have our attention.....

SHARP NEEDS TO START bringing their PHONES TO THE STATES. I love their TV's but man THIS PHONE IS SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL. I would buy SHARP over Samsung TV or cell phone

It looks really nice. Sharp seriously makes amazing phones in Japan. Wish they could come to the US market. That would be awesome.

Why don't sharp bring their RGBY Matrix screen to mobile
Check their tv on a store and looks amazing almost as good as a Samsung
