Sharp and Softbank releases the world first Android 2.3 Clamshell Phone

Here you are ladies and gentlemen the world first Android 2.3 Clamshell phone. Heresy? Not so fast! Japanese people love clamshell phone more than anything else and it is not surprising that a company like Sharp decided to jump into this niche by designing the world first Android Clamshell.

Sold via Softbank, the AQUOS Phone “The Hybrid 007SH” is a unique phone that comes with everything you could think of! An IPX5/IPX7 Waterproof body, a 16.10Mpix sensor, a 3.4” WVGA 3D New Mobile ASV touchscreen, 720p video recording mode, 3D Photo and Video Mode, AQUOS TV connector Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and Android 2.3!

Mark my word on this one, but this is “The Hybrid 007SH” is THE phone that will bring the average Japanese customer to the Smartphone world… Japanese people are still so much attached to the Clamshell form-factors that many people here were waiting for something like this to happen in order to move from the Feature Phone era to the Smartphone one… Well-played Sharp!

     Whoa that’s awesome! I really dig the aesthetics of flip phones.

    However I’m not sure I could ever go back to a keypad…

    Hopefully someone finds a way to unlock it for the United States. And it would be easier too since Android can be rooted for any carrier nowadays.

    I don’t understand why its heresy and what the obsession with not having clamshell phones is. I want a clamshell phone for the clear fact that it won’t deal random people in my pocket by accident and that it would protect the screen. Also they have clearer keys as they are bigger. Whats the obsession with touchscreen keyboards that aren’t responsive?

    I’d buy a Sony Ericsson Clamshell in a heart beat if it was an android and had more functionality than my current one. Isn’t
    that more the point that clamshell died in europe because they didn’t put any decent features on them and they all sucked.

    We’re all losing out in the fact that sharp isn’t selling this world wide. I’d switch phones if they did.
