Funky SH902i FOMA Handset Launched By Sharp Japan/NTT

Funky SH902i FOMA Handset Launched By Sharp Japan/NTTJapan Sharp and NTT DoCoMo will be launching the SH902i FOMA, their funky new 3G clamshell phone in Japan this week.

The sleek swivel-flip phone is dominated by a hefty 2.4-inch, QVGA (240×320) screen which incorporates Advance Super View (ASV) technology.

This limits the viewing angle of the screen to keep nosey Parkers from getting an eyeful of your personal SMS or emails – handy if you like to plot the premature death of your boss in the staff canteen.

Funky SH902i FOMA Handset Launched By Sharp Japan/NTTAs ever, there’s a veritable feast o’multimedia bolted on board, with the all-swivellin’, all-flippin’, shiny handset coming with an impressive 3.16 megapixel autofocus camera, an MP3 Player and the highly rated NetFront Web browser.

For expansion, there’s a miniSD slot available that can read cards up to 1GB.

Because the phone is aimed at the hip’n’groovy crowd, it comes in a range of colours with the usual daft names (Carbon Red, Leather Black, Shell Blue and Glass White).

Funky SH902i FOMA Handset Launched By Sharp Japan/NTTThe phone goes on sale in Japan on December 9th with no date set for us technology-starved folks in Britland.

If multimedia-tastic whirring Flash animations in Japanese are your thing, you can find out more about the phone – and spin it around to your heart’s content – on the 902i Website
