Some companies may be working to make their phones smaller and thinner, but Sharp is much more interested in cramming more functionality. The Willcom D4 is certainly larger than most phones, but it’s a lot more powerful too.
Straddling the great divide between mobile phones and pocket computers, the Intel Atom-based Willcom D4 gets loaded with a 1.33GHz processor, 40GB hard drive, 1GB RAM, a full QWERTY keyboard, an HTC Tilt-like slider, and Windows Vista. Rounding out the specs are Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, microSD expansion, 2MP camera, TV tuner, and a 5-inch 1024×600 display.
The Sharp Willcom D4 comes in at a hefty 128,600 Yen, which works out to about $1275. That’s more than a lot of entry-level laptops! Oh, and you still need to sign a two-year contract to get that price.
