 Sharp has announced a PDA phone called as the "W-ZERO3" which will make use of the latest edition of the Windows Mobile 5.0 (Japanese edition). The W-ZERO3 enjoys a slider form factor where the QWERTY keypad slides out from underneath the large, make that huge 3.7 inch VGA LCD. The handset will have 128 megabytes of built-in memory and a megapixel camera as well(1.3 megapixels to be precise). The Intel PXA270 processor makes short work of computing by operating at a clock speed of 416 Mhz. The W-Zero3 is also Wi-Fi compatible. The handset has USB and Bluetooth and supports a miniSD card slot which can swallow a card with 1 GB memory capacity. Of course the best part is that they promise to keep the price below 50,000 Yen (that would make it about 450 USD).
Sounds really good for a PDA device with Windows, a huge touchscreen as well as multiple features. The touchscreen LCD will however have only 65,536 colors.

Sharp W-ZERO3 PDA Phone

The handset is the conjunction of many firsts for the industry. Chief amongst them could be the 3.7 inch Mobile ASV display (Advanced Super View - it is more responsive at higher contrasts and brings a clarity to mobile screens that has never been seen before). Other positives for using this handset are having full POP3 and SMTP compatiblity. Of course the Windows advantage is never far away, the latest edition in fact has Windows Media Player 10, probably the best built-in player one could have and compatible with a host of file types.


Now we also mentioned that the handset is W-Sim compatible. W-Sim is basically the Willcom Sim card. It is not a normal sIM card but a considerably larger one, holds about 600 Kb of data and in addition to voice based data , it can support communicating with the PHS net as well, thus sppeds upto almost 128 kbps are possible. The comparatively larger size of the data communication card can also be thus explained. The W-Sim card costs about 10,000 yen. PHS services allow a subscriber to log into th base station within a radius of only 1000 feet and is thus significantly different from a cell phone which can jump from one station to another. However PHS is extremely cheap as compared to cellular services, this makes it worthwhile. Essentially using the PHS technology allows tramsmitting data cheaply and quickly, despite its shortcomings. In fact while a GSM base station could cost as much as 3 million dollars, a PHS station would be available for just 30,000 dollars.

  

The device will have a size of 70×130×26mm , all contained within a weight of 220 grams. Sharp expects to ship about 10,000 units of the W-Zero3 in this year itself and is confident of a strong demand for the same in the future as well.
