KDDI to Sell 5-Inch Sharp Device This Summer

Tokyo-based KDDI Corp. plans to offer an Android-based handset from Sharp in June in an effort to compete with the likes of NTT DoCoMo and Softbank Corp. The smart phone will offer a 5-inch touch display, a physical QWERTY keyboard, and TV tuner. This unit marks the first Android phone by a Japanese handset maker.

    First thing I thought when I read this was "What? Is KDDI a knife company?"

    Last time I looked, Sony was a Japanese company. Which would make Sharp's device the second Android phone, not the first.
