Two-megapixel mobile on sale today
It’s hard to believe, but Sharp’s two-megapixel cameraphone has gone on sale in the UK today. The Sharp 902 was announced in the initial lineup for Vodafone’s 3G service and we thought it was too good to be true at the time. But sure enough, here it is. It’ll cost you a bit – retailing at from £119.99 – but some might see it as a small price to pay for the feature set you get in return. As well as the 2-megapixel camera, there’s a 2x optical zoom lens, autofocus and swivel mount screen that lets you turn the screen round for easier snapping. And of course, the phone also handles Vodafone’s 3G service: video calls, music downloads and live TV highlight clips. Initial impressions are that the camera is very good indeed. The Guardian’s got an exclusive review coming up on Thursday.
