Sharp has just released it latest mobile internet device (MID) the Sharp NetWalker PC-T1 which has a huge resolution screen on a tiny 5 inch screen. The device only measures 150 x 90 x 18mm and weighs just 280g.
The 5 ” LCD touch panel has a 1024 x 600 resolution and the device runs a Sharp customised version of Ubntu 9.04 ARM OS running FireFox, Thunderbird and OpenOffice.org to name a few.
Unfortunately battery life is only rated for up to 6hrs, which is on the low side for a daily companion device, and the price tag is likely to put many would-be buyers off too. Sharp expect the NetWalker PC-T1 to be priced at around 47,000 yen ($512) when it lands in Japan come May, when it will be available in both black and white.
