Hitachi's high-res phone

Hitachi has revealed one of the first phones to use its recently developed high-resolution LCD. The W51H is being released in Japan, and does in fact have a 2.9-inch screen capable of 800x480 -- by contrast, the iPhone has a 3.5-inch screen, but only renders at 320x480. Notably however, the W51H does not have a touchscreen. What it will have is a fingerprint scanner, and a two-megapixel camera with LED flash. The onboard memory is a just 30MB, but it can play music and video thanks to Lismo and a microSD slot. The phone should be launched in red, silver and white on January 26th.
