Sharp brings 3D graphics, 3G wireless to UMPCs

updated 08:30 am EST, Mon February 19, 2007

Sharp S01SH

EMobile today jumpstarted its young cell service by introducing the Sharp S01SH, nicknamed the EM ONE. Although driven by Windows Mobile 5, the small UMPC shifts its attention to data over calls. Built-in HSDPA connects the handheld at up to 3.6Mbps anywhere the provider can offer 3G wireless access; internal 802.11g gives potentially faster Internet access when close to a Wi-Fi hotspot. The S01SH is also one of the few mobile devices to use NVIDIA's GoForce 5500 chipset for better 3D and movie playback on the system's sharp 800x480, 4.1-inch widescreen. Equally rare is the presence of a 1.3-megapixel camera at the back for capturing photos and video.

Expansion is also more refined than for most cellphones, and works with direct USB connections as well as Bluetooth and miniSD storage cards. EMobile ships the handheld with 512MB of internal flash for $834 in its home territory of Japan as of March 31st.
