In the end of June 2011, AU KDDI and IIDA released a wonderful new smartphone produced by Sharp, the Infobar A01.

While the hardware is the same as that of DoCoMo's SH-12C and SoftBank's 006SH, what is truly impressive is the customized user interface (UI) running on top of Android 2.3.3.

To design the phone and its UI interface, a team of artists collaborated. For a full list, click here. The device received the Good Design Award for 2011.

This smartphone has a 3.7-inch touchscreen with the unmatched resolution of 960 x 540 pixels (QHD) that no other maker can boast.
