Flashy GX20 Maybe the Missing Link in Camera Phones

Story by: Aries J. Galindo

What do you get when you snap a night time photo with your camera phone? More than likely a bunch of grainy images or maybe nothing at all. The GX20 is a welcome addition to the plethora of camera phones although presently available only to the European market. What's so special about this comfortable 25 x 95 x 49 mm package? An integrated mobile light. That's right, a built in flash that works either in white or, if in the mood, one of seven choice colors. Now you can send the images of your bat-gazing expeditions to your mom.

Other than that the phone may look pretty much like many clam-shell designed phones. Its a pity that it requires an external antennae but the for the most part offers a sleek design that can fit nicely in the users hand. A double display means you get to see the image you take even with the lid closed. The keys are spaced well and wide enough which should help prevent mis-keying.

Touting 65K colors with a continuous grain silicone LCD the screen is bright with good resolution. The integrated camera offers many options to customize from a 3 stage digital zoom, macromode and 3 picture sizes. You can even adjust the brightness. The external display becomes a viewfinder for self portraits. This particular unit also allows the function to record and show video clips including audio. Although nothing new (the Nokia 3650 does a fine job) it is new for the Sharp models.

This phone is TriBand and allows for overseas usage. Java support means cool games and applications can easily be downloaded in to the phone. 2MB of internal memory allows for plenty of image and sound storage. Naturally some of the typical functions are included such as:
date/time and alarm
pda-type functions like a calendar and phonebook
T9 which also allows for adding new words
polyphonic ringtones
access to Vodafone Live service
and a few built in games

Given the prestige of the GSM Association Awards 2004 of Best Mobile Terminal this phone promises to provide users with the quality of Sharp electronics and never a dark moment on romantic walks.
