Sharp’s Lynx SH-10B runs on NTT DoCoMo and is powered by Android. The touch-enabled 5-inch display sports a 960×480 pixel format and is coupled with a QWERTY keyboard in a clamshell form factor, like a MID but is actually a smartphone. Unfortunately the Android version seems to be 1.6 so the entire UI was laggy according to Engadget.
For folks who:
- Need to write a lot
- Would rather not use his/her thumbs
- Would rather not lug around an external Bluetooth keyboard
- Who don’t mind a little bulk
the Lynx SH-10B from Sharp might be just the right ticket.
