Remember that sliding QWERTY from Sharp that surfaced nearly two months ago? At the time, we incorrectly surmised that it could be a possible Android-powered Sidekick handset for T-Mobile. Shortly after we published the post we learned that the Sharp device was found to have support for AT&T bands, indicating the carrier could soon offer the handset. Flash forward to today and we have a name for the phone – the Sharp FX Plus.
The Sharp FX Plus was found in a Walmart brochure this week with AT&T’s logo prominently displayed across the bottom of the screen. According to the details in the brochure, the Sharp smart phone will run Android 2.2 Froyo and offer consumers a 3.2-inch display and Audience’s earSmart noise cancellation technology.
We're giving stuff away to help celebrate our tenth anniversary. Are you in?
We’re still waiting on an official announcement out of AT&T and Sharp but things look to be happening in short order.
