Vodafone, soon to be called Softbank Mobile Corp., announces in Japan the Sharp AQUOS 905SH digital terrestrial TV mobile phone.
The Sharp AQUOS 905SH features a Mobile ASV LCD screen based on Sharp's AQUOS LCD TV line.
With 4 hours of continuous viewing time, the 905SH is setting a new record. The TV phone is capable of receiving 'One Seg' terrestrial digital and analog TV broadcasts.
Also industry first's are the recording to memory card feature and the ability to actually make calls while watching TV.
The awesome looking screen of the Sharp 905SH measures 2.6 inch. It features 160 degree viewing angle, 300:1 contrast ratio and a resolution of 400x240px.
The 3G 905SH TV handset will go on sale in Japan starting May 27th 2006. It looks to me that the Sharp 905SH is the most advanced TV mobile phone as of yet. More details in this Sharp press-release (Japanese) and on Vodafone (Japanese).
