Sharp PC keyboard handset
Sharp unveiled the Softbank 9225H handset at the CEATEC 2008 convention that ended last week in Japan, which most notably features a QWERTY keyboard behind the front panel that is hinged like a notebook. On the inside of the lid, the device has a 3.5-inch display that makes it well-equipped to display streaming video from the 1Seg TV tuner in supported markets. The handset can store videos and photos taken by its integrated 2-megapixel camera on a microSDHC card slot.
The handset is capable of playing multimedia files and can connect to the Internet to download e-mails in a package less than 0.4 inches thick. No pricing information or release dates are available. [via Aving]
