My next phone? Sharp/Willcom W-ZERO3

Posted in Uncategorized by extrafox on June 8, 2006

The phones in Japan are really great and all, but I have become very accustomed to having my calendar and contacts sync with Outlook. Yes, I know it’s sad what a Redmond junkie I have become, but there you have it.

To refresh, it’s Windows Mobile 5, Intel PXA270 416 MHz processor, 64 MB of RAM and 128 flash RAM, 3.7” screen, WiFi, 1.3 megapixel camera, and miniSD slot. This is manufactured by Taiwan’s HTC, the same ones who did the Wizard and the upcoming Hermes. We hope they bring this one over to the US sometime. After all, we did let them borrow Natalie Portman for their Lux Shampoo commercials [Gizmodo]

My only real reservation is the size, but this is a pretty sweet phone. I have typically gone for smaller phones like my US phone, the Cingular 2125. But, I will be willing to forego size for the convenience of having Windows Mobile in Japan and, right now, the selection is slim over here for WM5.0 phones.
