The New EM-ONE Looks Very Promising
Sharp introduces the very cool looking EM-ONE. For now, this is a Japan-only Windows Mobile device - so we will just have to hope. The EM-ONE, from Sharp, will be a new launch device for Japan's new GSM carrier EMOBILE next month.
It will sport HSDPA, WiFi, and one-seg TV tuning in a 18.9mm-thin package. One of the interesting features is a dual-slide design, providing what Sharp calls "Control Style," "Input Style," and "View Style." The screen sound beautiful - A true wide VGA (800 x 480) display showing Windows Mobile 5 with the horsepower of a 520MHz XScale. Also included are Bluetooth, 512MB of onboard Flash, and lots of software.. It should cost ?95,000 (about $796) contract-free, but tack on the requisite 2 year agreement and you're only looking at ?39,800 ($333) -- So, when does it come to our neck of the woods?
