Like CES, the CEATEC show in Japan hands out awards for innovative products. The CEATEC 2009 Innovations Award got judged by a panel of U.S. Journalists.
The Grand Prix award went to Mirumo, a dual-screenmobilephone by Sharp, and Mr. Kanellos (Greentech Media) stated the reason for the selection was not only because the product realized an integration of telephone and IC chip but also generated a new level of technology.
So what is the Sharp Mirumo 934SH phone all about? Sharp announced the 934SH back in June and it is available on Softbank in Japan. The Mirumo has a 2nd large outside screen with only two colors. The screen can be customized to display different information. As simple as just a clock, but also crazy stuff like the UV intensity the Mirumo measures with the built-in UV sensor.
Other features of the Sharp Mirumo include 3-inch VGA screen, 8MP camera, IPX5/IPX7 waterproof, and microSD card slot.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
