The Sharp 903SH is the first 3.2 megapixel camera phone in the UK. The digital camera features include are the 2x optical zoom and its 5 high-performance aspheric glass lenses. Frame Interline Transfer process, the same type used in professional-quality broadcast video cameras, to prevent the “smear” phenomenon and of course those picture sizes of up to QXGA sizes (1,536 x 2,048 pixel) and exposure control.
Take the picture and the included Bluetooth means you can send it to other Bluetooth-enabled devices like your laptop, or even better a printer, with minimal of fuss.
The said screen among other things uses something Sharp are calling “Mobile ASV”, which is based on ASV (Advanced Super View) liquid crystal display technology found in its AQUOS line of LCD TVs. Sharp has always been good at screens, opting to put 262k displays in its phones long before the competition did. The 903SH is no exception. It’s bright, clear and has a fantastic response when using it with the camera. Couple this with a viewing angle of 160 degrees from all angles without any colour distortion and you’ve got a great handset for sharing video or the images you’ve taken.
