"WVGA's so 2009, isn't it? Sharp has broken Android's usual 800 (or 854) x 480 mold this week with the introduction of the IS03 for Japan's KDDI au network, boasting a full 960 x 640 on its 3.5-inch screen -- matching the iPhone 4's so-called retina display -- along with Advanced Super View (ASV) technology, delivering the same kind of viewing angle benefits you find in IPS."
For all it's advantages, including the 9.6 megapixel camera, it is only available in Japan. Wonder why they say "so-called retina display," isn't that what it is called? Regardless, I like the fact this phone has the ability for the contactless payment system and the image stabilization option, as well as the support for Global Passport CDMA. Oh and it is soon to be available in three colors. Lot's of advantages, if you are in Japan.
