Sharp Galapagos 7-inch WiMAX tablet launches

Sharp Galapagos 7-inch WiMAX tablet launches

Back in September, we reported that Sharp had killed off its 10.8-inch and 5.5-inch Galapagos tablets. When the tablets were axed there was still a 7-inch version coming that Sharp hoped would be able to generate more interest than those other two tablets did. That new 7-inch tablet has now been spied and it has some nice features.

LightSquared and Sharp team up for smartphone and tablet development

Sharp has some pretty cool smartphones and tablets, sadly most of that stuff never makes it to the US for geeks to try out. LightSquared is a company that is new to the US and is looking to offer a nationwide 4G network at wholesale prices. That means no direct to consumer sales. Perhaps the tie up with Sharp will mean that more of the cool Sharp devices will come stateside.

SoftBank 007SH KT Hello Kitty Android Gingerbread Phone For The Win

SoftBank 007SH KT Hello Kitty Android Gingerbread Phone For The Win

Welcome to the greatest Android device on the market today. I'm only half joking, as the specs on this very gaudy looking device are certainly nothing to scoff at, and it boasts the very strange accomplishment of being the second clamshell device running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The first was of course the AQUOS PHONE THE HYBRID 007SH, essentially the same basic components this device is built on. Yesterday we got a glimpse of the Yahoo! Android phone from Sharp AQUOS, today we get the next rebranded handset in the Hello Kitty Android flip phone. Is this just a Japanese fad, or are cross-brand re-releases of Android devices on the horizon?

Yahoo Google Phone Coming Soon from Sharp

Yahoo Google Phone Coming Soon from Sharp

What we're to understand we're looking at here is one strange combination of brands creating a device that's no less than completely absurd. This is a Yahoo! phone made for Japan (since Japan is still so very in love with Yahoo) and will be running on Android. You may recognize this device if you're familiar with Sharp's line of cute little phones: this one being a rebranded Sharp AQUOS smartphone in white. What the non-Google search engine group will be adding to the device is a brand new interface skin on the inside and a lovely new Yahoo! branded case on the outside - why they thought this would be an awesome idea is anyone's guess.
