11/23/2011, Excited at the possibility of Apple’s television actually coming to fruition? Well if Jefferies analyst Peter Misek’s predictions are to be believed, we should be able to expect a launch of an Apple television set some time mid-2012, which is usually when Apple’s WWDC is held and where Apple’s iPhones have typically been launched (with the exception of the iPhone 4S).
11/17/2011, According to a new report by Digitimes, it seems that Apple may be gearing up for production of the iPad 3 as display manufacturers Samsung and Sharp have already started ship the display panels required for the tablet. No word on what happened to Apple’s other display manufacturers LG Display and Chimei Innolux, but for now it appears that only Samsung and Sharp are in the picture.
11/17/2011, You know how the saying goes – if at first you don’t succeed, try again. Sharp certainly did give a fair shot at the tablet market with their 5.5″, 7″ and 10.8″ models from their Galapagos range last year as well as this year, but after seeing sales of their efforts being dismal, they discontinued a couple of models, leaving only the 7″ Galapagos being the sole survivor of the […]
11/16/2011, Sharp had originally announced three Galapagos tablets. They were meant to give Apple’s iPad and the other Android tablets in the market a run for their money (isn’t that always the case?), but unfortunately Sharp cancelled two of those three tablets, leaving us to wonder about the fate about the last one. The good news is that the last 7” Galapagos tablet has surfaced, along with Sharps announcement that they […]
11/11/2011, A recent FCC filing has revealed that the Sharp Aquos SH-01D may be headed our way soon. The device was originally announced in Japan, and half the time those phones never make it stateside, which is kind of a pity since some of Japan’s smartphone offerings are usually on the more interesting side.
11/07/2011, Sharp of Japan has snagged another world record – by introducing the world’s highest solar cell conversion efficiency which stands at 36.9% thanks to a triple-junction compound solar cell. This particular solar cell will feature a stacked three-layer structure that keep sit going at such an energy efficient level. Just how does compound solar cells work? Well, they make use of photo-absorption layers that are made from compounds which comprise […]
10/12/2011, They say that chocolate is a magical kind of food, functioning as an aphrodisiac as well as a general “feel good” food when taken in reasonable quantities. Well, those who have a great love for chocolate might want to check out the Sharp Q-Pod smartphone that is powered by the Android operaing system, where it will feature a gold color scheme overall, although part of the back, front and user […]
10/10/2011, In terms of enterprise use, iOS and Blackberry seems to be favored, and curious why, 3LM approached CIOs and asked them why they did not choose Android as their preferred enterprise platform. Their answer was that there were several core features missing along with security concerns that held them back from going with Android. This prompted 3LM to launch their own security platform for Android which is expected to be […]
10/04/2011, While the whole world stood still for a moment to have their expectations deflated with the announcement of the iPhone 4S, Sharp has quietly announced the Android 2.3 Gingerbread software update for those who own the Galapagos 003SH smartphone in Japan – obviously, those residing in the Land of the Rising Sun might find this bit of news to be of interest, since Softbank Mobile, the provider for the Android-powered […]
10/04/2011, [CEATEC 2011] Don’t you find it interesting at how fashion, just like technology, evolves? Well, Sharp has some pretty (pardon the pun) sharp TVs in the market, but how many of them are able to be carried around wirelessly? Needless to say, the ones above could be the future, although I am curious to know how they solved the power issue. How can something so slim stash a battery that […]
10/04/2011, [CEATEC 2011] We all know what a huge blow Japan received at the hands of the massive earthquake in March earlier this year, where it led to a tsunami as well as entire villages being wiped out in the process. Not only that, there was a very real danger of a nuclear fallout which was thankfully contained in time. Well, let’s just say since that happened, anti-nuclear sentiment has certainly […]
10/04/2011, [CEATEC 2011] If you think that you have it good in your living room at the moment, think again. Sharp’s got some eye popping visuals coming your way thanks to a 8K4K TV that is capable of rolling out stunning images as you can see for yourself above – and what we’ve seen at CEATEC so far has clearly blown our eyes away. This 60″ 4K TV was developed alongside […]
09/29/2011, Sharp sure is on a roll with new Android devices lately. The company has just introduced a new handset to its AQUOS PHONE lineup. Called the AQUOS PHONE 102SH, this sleek looking phone was recently introduced in Japan and will be carried by SoftBank, so it probably won’t make its way to the US – at least not anytime soon, but it packs specs and looks similar to the AQUOS […]
09/29/2011, Continents are bridged as NTT DoCoMo of Japan and Orange have come together to work on a new 3D smartphone that will arrive in Europe – France specifically, thanks to hardware provided by Sharp in the form of the Sharp Aquos Phone SH80F. Of course, if that is a mouthful to speak (and remember), perhaps a more abbreviated SH-12C would be more advisable? The Aquos Phone SH80F will feature a […]
