Sharp unveils world's first clamshell Android with 3D
The Sharp AQUOS PHONE THE HYBRID 007SH is not only one of the most ludicrously named handsets out there, but the world’s first to come in with the combination of Android, a clamshell form factor and autostereoscopic 3D. We’ve seen some Android clamshells before, but it’s the first one where all of the features including 3D meet in a single package. The phone features a 3.4-inch 3D LCD autostereoscopic (no glasses required) touchscreen, which sounds spacious for a flip phone, and the screen doesn’t just flip, but it also swivels around transforming the AQUOS PHONE into a candy bar phone look alike. A small 0.7-inch additional OLED display is on the bottom as well.

The impressive spec sheet continuous with a 16-megapixel CCD camera capable of recording HD video, but you’d be even more surprised to BluRay recorder connectivity, a digital TV tuner and a waterproof body. If you haven’t guessed it by now let us dispel any illusions - the device is slated for the open to experiments Japanese market.

In addition, standard connectivity is also well covered with support for Wi-Fi b/g/n, GPS, an infrared port and a microSD slot. The handset weighs a rather average for a smartphone 4.94 ounces (140 g), while its thickness measures at the considerable 0.76” (19.3 mm) of girth. On the software side, you’re looking at Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Do you think that such a phone would spur interest stateside or is it doomed to failure? Give us your two cents in the comments below.
