Sharp FX Plus Spied With AT&T Branding in Walmart Brochure

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 still waiting on an official announcement out of AT&T and Sharp but things look to be happening in short order.
