Sharp LC-52LB3 & LC-46LB3 AQUOS Quattron 3D LCD TVs Unveiled

For TV manufacturers, getting the best quality picture to the consumer is a top priority. For Sharp, they've tried to reach that goal by introducing TVs with the Quattron technology, which successfully adds a fourth color (yellow) to the standard Red, Green, Blue. The result is a sharper image, and better colors on the screen.

Sharp Galapagos ereader Android tablets get official [Video]

Sharp has spilled the official beans on its two new ereader tablets, with the bizarrely named Galapagos platform being the name both for the hardware and the company's new ebook ecosystem.  The two Sharp Galapagos slates each run Android: the "mobile" model has a 5.5-inch 1024 x 600 display, while the "home" version has a 10.8-inch 1366 x 800 display; LCD displays are used, rather than the E Ink panels more regularly found on ereaders.

Buggy Sharp DoCoMo LYNX SH-10B Android MID sales frozen; only 7k bought in 2 months

Looks like NTT DoCoMo aren't having much luck with Sharp's LYNX SH-10B Android MID.  The company froze sales of the QWERTY handheld a week ago, after discovering a security loophole that could allow malicious software to harvest text, then settled on an update that apparently fixed the flaw and would let the carrier put the SH-10B back on sale from tomorrow.  Now that's changed again, with the discovery of a further bug in the MID.

Sharp Quattron-based 3D TV Introduced, 60-Inches of Increased Brightness

This year's proving a good year for in-home 3D TVs. Sharp, which has yet to make a real splash in the market, has just pulled the curtain off their brand new 3D TV, which features their Quattron technology. If that sounds familiar, it should.

Verizon “Entourage” ereader duo due September

Verizon “Entourage” ereader duo due September

Here's an odd one.  Verizon are already tipped to be offering at least one 10.1-inch tablet later in 2010, and are name-checked as the potential carrier of choice for Sharp's upcoming duo of LCD ebook readers, but according to Engadget's sources the roadmap has two devices billed as "ereaders" on the roadmap for September that are labelled as "Entourage".  That's got them speculating that the devices may be from the same Entourage that produces the dual-screen eDGe ereader.
