BERITA GADGET - A new and slightly odd ball Android device has been revealed by manufacturer Sharp and Japanese network KDDI, in the shape of the Sharp IS01 – a netbook-like super-super-ultra-portable powered by Android 1.6.

Offering a larger keyboard than current Android QWERTY slider phones, the new Sharp uses its bigger clamshell footprint to offer a 5″ screen that runs at a high (for a mobile) resolution of 960 x 540.

That keyboard won’t work for touch-typists, but will at least offer keys large to make ‘thumbing’ very easy – and the 1GHz Snapdragon processor inside the Sharp curio ought to give it power to cope with everything a modern smartphone, and cheap laptop, can offer.
