Orange has fired out a press release detailing its plans to launch the autostereoscopic Sharp Aquos SH80F smartphone in Europe. Well, France anyway.
The Sharp Aquos SH80F is one of them 3D phones. Y’know, like the LG Optimus 3D and HTC Evo 3D? It’s already available in Japan, on the Docomo network.
“We are excited to be launching the AQUOS PHONE SH80F, thanks to our collaboration with NTT DOCOMO and SHARP,” said the brilliantly named Yves Maitre, Senior Vice President of Mobile Multimedia and Devices, Orange France.
“Orange is committed to bringing compelling innovations to our customers. Together, we share this ambition, launching this product in both Asia and Europe. We look forward to developing similar opportunities for our customers in the future.”
We’re not entirely sure if “Europe” extends beyond France, but personally I’ll be praying for more autostereoscopic action. I can’t get enough. On a more serious note, I've asked Orange UK if we should expect to see it over here.
The Sharp Aquos SH80F has a 4.2in display, dual 8MP cameras, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.4 GHz processor, 2GB internal memory, and Gingerbread (Android 2.3). That doesn’t sound too shabby, actually.
