    Oh I see... that press release makes it sound like it's a completely different engine lol. So Renesas chips and Sharp programming? Or am I missing something (as I am prone to do)?

    Sharp is kidding themselves if they think that an 820mah battery will be enough for this phone. Number one complaint from anyone switching from a Gala-kei to android is "damn the battery drains too fast". It would take about 3 seconds to realise this type of thoughts are all over twitter, 2ch, blogs etc (and thats with the 1100mah batteries)

    It is excusable for the first round of Androids (they didnt know), but they should have realised since then. So either they are too thick-headed to listen to customer feedback; or they have found something completely revolutionary in terms of battery conservation on Android...
    I think it's mainly due to the fact that they wanted to conform to the traditional keitai look- long, narrow, not-too-thick and craploads of tech in there. All that = small batteries are needed, like traditional keitais.

    It's not that they don't know Android uses gobloads of battery- they did cram 1000+ mah batteries on the original slab android keitais

    You know, scrolling home menus would have been where the Touch Cruiser would've come into good use. Swipe on TouchCru and change home menus. Use direction keys to select icons.

    Does that mean we'll definitely get it, or there is just a little chance? Because I still highly doubt that Sharp will release it outside of Asia...

    That happens with every phone. It doesn't mean that there will be a US/Europe release at all.

    I imagine that they would need to do that in order to certify it for global roaming, right?

    Well, that's what the Engaget article claims, that this approval is because Sharp is going to sell it in the US/Europe. After all, the FCC is an American organization and they've got no business approving Japan-only phones, have they? For Europe, it's the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) but they don't get mentioned - I guess if the FCC's approved it that "automatically" means the ETSI will too.

    The second press release by Sharp I linked in the main forum: http://www.sharp.co.jp/corporate/rep...ne2/index.html

    actually mentions the US and Europe. Here's the quote again:
    "Finally, in addition to Japan and China, U.S. and Europe and in emerging economies "AQUOS PHONE" explained the expansion." (最後に、日本・中国に加え、米国や欧州、新興国への「AQUOS PHONE」展開を説明しました。).

    Exactly same situation with me but I don't know if I can be patient enough for the probable docomo version

    The FCC has to certify every single phone that *might* be used (roaming or otherwise) on American soil.

    It might be a sign of things to come but probably just to certify it for roaming (y'know, to ensure its radiation won't kill every American it touches or something).

    Dude, you can find the 920SH, SH-07B and basically any other roaming capable phone on the FCC.

    Engadget are full of crap

    Yes mate. The last mod stole money from members and left the us all in the dark. Nasty piece of work.

    I volunteered my services as I am now living in Tokyo and felt I have been around here long enough to be trusted. I won't be throwing weight around; just catching spam, re-routing threads and being a point of contact for any issues or concerns.

    Yeah, that habit is a bit annoying. But then again, I wouldn't be surprised if they went global with this one, given the feature set.

    Really? that's terrible, was he stealing donation money or something?

    Maybe you can pop into a phone shop and give us a quick 'youtube' style review? lol
