Sharp’s 5-inch Android MID, the IS01, has finally made it to US shores, though it’s not quite the perfect release we were hoping for. Importer Conics are doing the honors, rather than Sharp itself: they’ve listed the clamshell handset for a mere $246, which gets you a 5-inch 960 x 480 capacitive touchscreen, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and twin cameras.
Unfortunately, it also gets you a Japanese-spec 3G radio, suited to carrier KDDI but not much use in the US, together with just Android 1.6. Still, we’re guessing there’ll be a fair few people still interested; check out Pocketables‘ first-impressions for more information.
