Sharp has released its new SH706iw mobile phone in Japan. The new phone features Dolby Mobile to improve overall music quality. Other features include a large, 3in touchscreen LCD that supports VGA resolution at 480 x 854 pixels. A camera is reportedly included, although it's not as impressive as the rest of the mobile phone with just a 2MP specification, although it does offer auto-focus. MicroSD and microSDHC is also provided to expand the in-built memory for music and memory purposes but to what figure has not been declared.
Sized at 109 x 17.8 x 50mm and weighing in at 119g, the new phone will give you 195 call minutes in 3G mode plus a standby time of around 490 hours. Video calls can also be made - battery life extends to 105 minutes for those, according to the Phone Area website. The handset's available in white and brown.
