The handset is available in JapanSH906i is the name of the latest mobile phone created by Sharp Corporation, the giant Japanese company, and it comes after the unveiling of Sharp Disney and Sharp WS020SH (this one being a Windows Mobile 6.1 handset with a full QWERTY keyboard).
As most of the latest phones produced in Japan, Sharp SH906i has an elegant clamshell form factor and offers a wide array of high-end features (that few other devices can offer). The new handset brings a 3.0 inch internal touchscreen display with 16.7 million colors, a WVGA resolution of 480 × 854 pixels and Synaptics ClearPad technology (letting users write Japanese characters directly on the screen, with their fingers). Furthermore, Sharp SH906i features a user interface based on Symbian OS, built-in GPS, both GSM and 3G connectivity, advanced Web and email capabilities, Music and Video players, 1Seg mobile TV support, FM radio, Bluetooth 2.0, USB, push to talk, i-mode, image editor, document viewer (PDF included), dictionaries, pre-installed games, barcode reader, multitasking abilities, expandable memory (up to 8GB) and so on.
Weighing 135 grams and measuring 112 x 49 x 18.6 millimeters (when closed), Sharp SH906i also features a 5.2 Megapixel camera with auto focus, lens cover, flash and video recording in VGA mode - a camera that should allow users to take high-quality photos in about any conditions.
Unfortunately, Sharp SH906i is available only in Japan, in three color options (white, black and blue and pink), via NTT DoCoMo. The largest Japanese mobile carrier, NTT DoCoMo renamed the Sharp handset FOMA SH906i - NTT renames all its phones, so this shouldn't be a surprise.
Besides Sharp SH906i, DoCoMo has other two new handsets that run on Symbian, the F906i, made by Fujitsu, and Sony Ericsson BRAVIA SO906i, a rarity among SE's phones. As Sharp's SH906i clamshell, both these devices are made only for the Japanese market.
