Sharp Mebius PC-NJ70A coming to America

Posted in Sharp by Shane McGlaun on April 27th, 2009

sharpmebius-ogWith virtually every computer maker and a few non-computer makers jumping into the netbook realm it can be hard to differentiate one netbook from the other in a consumers mind. All of the machines run the same hardware, software and offer virtually identical specifications.

Sharp unveiled a new netbook last week called the Mebius PC-NJ70A that set itself apart from the pack with a feature of dubious value — a second LCD where the track pad should be. The track pad controlled the cursor like you expect, but could also play video and accept handwriting to be converted into text on screen.

An 854 x 480 resolution LCD, which automatically adjusts brightness depending on the surrounding light and can probably function as a secondary display.

Aside from that, this netbook is boring with a capital B. Some other features include a 10.1-inch display (1,024 x 600), 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB HDD, three USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and a multicard reader.

Sharp SH001 8 megapixel camera phone with gossip featureHere’s another Japan only phone. The Sharp SH001 from KDDi telecom. The clamshell sports an 8 Megapixel camera and has most of the functions you would expect from an entry level digital camera. It features Sharp’s ‘ProPix’, a proprietary picture conversion engine, auto focus and face recognition.

The phone comes with 740 MB of internal memory which you can expand on with a 2GB Micro SD card. This one is targeted at 20 to 30 year old females. If Sharp doesn’t have their attention with the other specs, the gossip feature surely should win them over.
