The first of the Lynx series is NTT DoCoMo and Sharp's first Android device (v.1.6) for the Japanese market - a revamped IS01, announced a couple of months earlier on the carrier AU KDDI. However, DoCoMo were able to start selling the Lynx before KDDI, and it hit stores in japan in June 2010.
Underneath the notably more sporty looks of the Lynx in comparison to the IS01, there is the same hardware. The 5-inch "New Mobile ASV" multitouch screen flaunts a resolution of 960x480 pixels. It is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and 256MB of RAM. Equipped with 4GB of internal memory with SDHC support, 1Seg TV tuner (for Japanese digital television broadcasts) and an FM Transmitter, IrDA and Wi-Fi b/g and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, the Lynx SH-10B also promises comfortable text input with a full QWERTY keyboard having a 11.2mm key pitch.
A special Sharp treat is the built-in Aquos Blu-Ray transport allowing you to rip Blu-Ray movies directly to your Lynx SH-10B. There is also an auto-focus smile-tracking 5.27MP rear (main) camera and a front facing one for video calls of just 0.43MP. Unlike the IS01, the Lynx doesn't offer the Augmented Reality ("Sekai Camera") feature that only KDDI offers in Japan, for now.
TheLynx SH-10B has a CDMA module and comes in black & red or black & white color.
