Finally, also Japan - otherwise home of the gadgets - get its first Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition. The Sharp W-ZERO3 or WS0003SH will even run Windows Mobile 5.0! Sharp is well known for their previous PDA devices called Zaurus SL-C and in the past Casio was the only Japanese Windows Mobile device maker but retired from the consumer market some years ago.
Now comes Sharp and their Windows Mobile 5.0 device includes a 3.7" screen, Wireless LAN, features an Intel PXA270 CPU with 416MHz, includes 128MB Flash memory, 64MB SDRAM, a 1.3 megapixel camera and also has telephony functions (otherwise it would be a plain Pocket PC, not a Phone Edition).
Following the general trend, the Sharp W-ZERO3 is a slider with thumb-keyboard too.
