Vodafone K.K. today announces the development of the Vodafone 905SH by Sharp, a new 3G handset capable of receiving "One Seg" terrestrial digital TV broadcasts. The new model is planned for June 2006, a time scheduled for international football matches.
The Vodafone 905SH features a "Cycloid Style" LCD that can rotate 90 degrees to a horizontal position. This design innovation enables customers to enjoy digital TV broadcasts in 400 x 240 pixel resolution, full widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio format. In addition to hand-held viewing, the Vodafone 905SH is also great for relaxed TV enjoyment at home - even in open position, the handset is stable when placed on a flat surface and set at a desired viewing angle. The handset has a large-size 2.6-inch Mobile ASV LCD, which is based on ASV (Advanced Super View) technology for vivid, wide-angle viewing, found in Sharp's AQUOS line of LCD TVs. A 6 colour filter also enables unrivaled colour purity in digital and analogue TV broadcasts, even while outdoors.
The main features of the Vodafone 905SH are as follows:
*Capable of receiving terrestrial digital and analogue TV broadcasts
*"Cycloid Style" 90 degree rotating LCD, optimal for watching TV
*Large-size 2.6-inch Mobile ASV LCD, for high-resolution, widescreen TV viewing
