Japan and the United States build phones differently. In the U.S. we want better performance, more dazzling displays, and faster processors. Japan just makes the thing look awesome. And not many have done it better than Sharp.
No, the Super Bowl is not going to be in 3D this year. Again. But that doesn't mean you don't want a 3D set. Here's the thing: The best 2D TV is a 3D TV. The burlier image processors required to render the third dimension make everything look better.
After watching this demonstration video, I'm amazed by how incredibly good Sharps' new stabilized camera phone sensor is. It's on the Aquos SH-01D phone, but it should really be standard in every single phone out there. By law. [Thanks Karl!]
Check the size of this monster compared to human beings. It's the Sharp Aquos 80-inch LCD television. 80 bloody inches—6.66 feet! And still, it's price tag is only $5500, which feels low to me given its insane size.
Sharp's new 70 inch Aquos Quattron 3D TV isn't the biggest 3D TV out there, but it's the biggest one from Sharp. They've been making flat screens since the dawn of time, and here's my hands-on... er, eyes-on.
Sharp's jumping into the mainstream LED pool with Aquos LED (they had the pricier XS1). Sharp says theirs are better, since they make their own LEDs and use a next-gen LCD substrate. But there's no local dimming. WTF? Updated
The US International Trade Commission has ruled that some Sharp LCD displays violate a patent owned by Samsung and should be banned from being imported into the US. Although, it is probably nothing to get overly excited about.
While the downward pricing spiral may be over, manufacturers are finding new ways to move TVs, like including a free Blu-ray player worth $300 when you buy one of many Sharp LCDs.
Sharp has unveiled a stunning 26-foot-tall Christmas tree made of 43 Aquos LCD televisions, which sizes ranging from 19 to 52 inches. The gigantic TV tree is located in New York's Grand Central Station, where people can not only admire its coordinated decoration animations, created by Japanese video artist Tsuyoshi…
Costco, in a fit of either economic optimism or pessimism, is selling not one but two Sharp AQUOS 46" HDTVs for just $1999 with $99 shipping. That's a solid $200 below anything PriceGrabber could find for me, and more than $350 below Amazon. Sure, two giant LCDs might be seen as a little excessive, but even the super…
It's not available in the US, but Softbank customers will be able to snag the Aquos Fulltouch 931SH. It may look a lot like the iPhone, but this phone packs slide-out QWERTY along with a 3.8-inch touchscreen running at a crazy 1024x480 resolution. Not only is that as sharp as the HTC Touch HD—it's super wide screen,…
If you're in the market for a new television and a Blu-Ray player, Sharp will help you kill two birds with one of its new Aquos DXs. The company has released a line of LCD TVs that have built-in Blu-Ray disc recorders, which they tout as an all-in-one solution for recording television onto BDs... in case there's…
Yep, Dell, purveyors of computers and such, currently have the best price on a really decent Sharp Aquos, the 42" LC-42SB45U with 1080p resolution. It's $899, and shipping is free, though you will have to pay sales tax. By contrast, Amazon's starting price on this model is $972, and the shopping sites tend to list it…

Whether the Dealzmodo of the Century, a 52-inch Sharp Aquos HDTV for the eye-popping price of $38.42, was a cockup or just a scammy scam, Amazon is now actively canceling orders placed with affiliate myOfficeSource, whose Amazon storefront appears to be totally cleared out. So even if you did get your order in before…
Error or scam, Amazon has pulled the page with the 52-inch $38.45 Sharp Aquos, probably overwhelmed by the orders from crazy Giz readers dreaming about a glorious, gigantic HDTV in their living rooms and/or toilets. Reader Max called Amazon to check on his order and they told him there was something weird going on:
