We’re not sure exactly what Sharp is trying to accomplish when they unveiled the Aquos Phone The Hybrid 007SH (yup, that’s the phone’s full product name), but it looks like they were going for everything. See, it’s not only a full-on Android smartphone, it’s a smartphone with a 3.4-inch (854 x 480) glasses-free 3D display built into a rare clamshell form factor so you get a secondary 0.7-inch OLED display on the lid and a full alphanumeric pad (great for people who prefer typing using actual buttons). That ain’t no ordinary clamshell body either. Apparently, it’s also waterproof.
To further push the envelope, the 007SH also packs a 16-megapixel cam that can record in 720p HD, digital TV tuner, microHDMI out, microSD card slot, GPS, Wi-fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
Now, we don’t know how many people would need an Android phone with a 3D display and waterproof shell, but if you’re interested in a phone that apparently wants to be everything (except “slim”), the phone is out next month. Unfortunately, it looks like it’s only going to be sold in Japan, via SoftBank. But if you can find a way to get one, you’ll be happy to know it works on any network, thanks to GSM and WCDMA support.
