Sharp IS03 has 960×480 Resolution screen


Every time I see an iPhone 4 commercial, they never fail to tout the “amazing retina display” that’s “only on the iPhone 4”. Well, a new contender has stepped up to take the iPhone’s screen head on. No, it’s not a Samsung, HTC, or even a Motorola device. It’s made by Sharp. The Sharp IS03 sports a nifty little 3.5-inch “Super View” screen, which boasts a resolution of 960×480, matching the iPhone 4’s retina display. Oh yeah, did we mention that the IS03 also has a 9.6 megapixel HD autofocus camera and a TV tuner?

The IS03 is currently only available in Japan. The screen technology will most likely make it to the States sooner or later, but as for the IS03, we can’t set anything in stone yet. But it doesn’t hurt to dream..

    Shouldn’t it be 960×640?

    Looks horrible with that gigantic bezel, and it’s a Sharp product. Double fail!
