Sharp Aquos Phone brings 3D HD recording to Japan on May 20
While we're looking forward to the LG Optimus 3D, Japan's NTT DoCoMo is getting their own device capable of shooting 3D HD video. The Sharp Aquos Phone SH-12C will prove a close rival to LG's much-anticipated device.

The SH-12C features two 8-megapixel cameras, capable of shooting 720p 3D video. The earlier versions of the Sharp Aquos Phone could take only still images in 3D.

It features a 4.2-inch display with 2D resolution of 540x960, and a glasses-free 3D display. The SH-12C runs on the Android 2.3 OS, and is powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm processor. If all that weren't enough, it also has an NFC chip, a digital TV tuner, and infrared communication.

The Sharp Aquos Phone SH-12C is up for pre-order on May 14th for release on May 20th, with pricing still unannounced. And if Sharp is listening, this is all we have to say: Why do you tease us like this?

Its time to roll out again and take another pit stop, in this market where smaller or older companies are trying to make it big again.

All I can say is... don't make us jealous... Bring that smartphone outside Japan and will see how we will love that phone... Sharp is biggest mobile phone maker in japan... hopefully panasonic will lunch there own smartphone soon just like NEC-casio-hitachi (NEC medias). Kyocera is moving also... guys in Japan there is other market that wants your phone too.
