Sharp's new TV Phone

Although the iPhone fills and surpasses the needs of most American consumers, for the Japanese it’s an entirely different “world”, they need their own television on the fly. That is why many of the most popular devices in the land of the rising sun have some way of allowing you to tune in to some wireless television network.

This latest device is no different, and can be used as a portable television or as a cellphone. I’m not sure if this is a television with cellphone functions, or the other way around. In any case, here is the Sharp 913 SH.

Although the screen’s resolution leaves a bit to be desired, with a 240×400 pixels, I can’t help but to feel amazed with the number of features we can fit into our small devices nowadays. About 20 years ago, my father brought a portable television from Japan. It was roughly twice the size of the original Gameboy, yes, it was about as big as a brick. But at the time it was top technology, and the screen was about as big as the Gameboy’s (yeah, it was that small).

I wonder what the next step is, we already have all the media functions we could want… 10 years from now we will probably be able to do a thorough medical exam with the press of a button with our mobile devices, or maybe I’m getting ahead of myself…
