Earlier this week we gave you the deails of a new Android phone from Sharp, the FX Plus, that’s headed towards AT&T. While details were minimal at best, it turns out that the folks over at Gadgetian have managed to get their hands on more information about the device. Despite the phone having a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, its lack of Gingerbread (come on, it’s already July 2011!) will probably turn away veteran smartphone users but consumers looking for an entry-level device for their first smartphone probably won’t mind it too much.
The Sharp FX Plus is the successor to the original Sharp FX messaging phone, and features a 3.2″ HVGA display, a 600MHz processor, 512MB of RAM, a 3-megapixel camera, an SD card that supports up to 32GB memory cards, Bluetooth, WiFi and GPS. It will run on Android 2.2 and come with Google apps such as the Android Market, in addition to some preloaded AT&T apps and services. The phone will feature earSmart noise cancellation technology, and of course a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
No word on pricing or release date but with such outdated specs, chances are it’s going to be free with a 2-year contract. Any takers?
