Video: Sharp’s New Image Stabilized 12MP Camera Sensor Demoed

By David Ponce

It was just a few days ago that news was spreading of Sharp’s new 12MP image stabilized CMOS sensor. Roughly the same size at the sensor in the iPhone, it’s the world’s smallest to have stabilization. And while the cramming of so many pixels may or may not be a good idea, turns out that the stabilization capabilities are pretty darn impressive. Just watch the video below to get an idea. Incidentally, it’s mounted inside the “Sharp AQUOS SH-01D, a skinned Android handset from Japan’s NTT DoCoMo which also packs a 1280 x 720 3D display into its waterproof case.”

By David Ponce

Another day, another large flat screen TV enters the sub-$1k club. And it seems that the new members are getting larger and larger. Today the Sharp AQUOS LC60LE6300U is getting a $700 rebate. That’s a 60 inch LED tv for $999. LED means is the thinner kind, with less power consumption and generally nicer image. Here are some specs: 1920×1080 1080p resolution, 4 HDMI inputs, HD tuner, 120Hz refresh rate.

Deal Of The Day: $100 Off Sharp AQUOS 60 Inch LCD

By David Ponce

It seems as though we should stop being amazed at falling flatscreen TV prices because no sooner do we mention how impressed we are at sub $1k prices on a 55 incher that we come across a $1,000 60 inch TV. Sure, this is not LED so it’s bulkier and uses a more electricity. But it’s also 5 feet of television! We’re talking about the Sharp AQUOS LC-60E79U 60-in 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV, which features 1920×1080 1080p resolution, 4 HDMI inputs, HD tuner, 120Hz refresh rate, and more. After a $100 rebate, it’s $999.

Sharp Mebius Dual LCD Netbook Coming Stateside

I am a big netbook fan, I like the portability of the machines and every netbook I have tried was capable of doing everything I need a computer to do this side of gaming. With the glut of netbooks on the market, manufacturers are trying everything from bright colors to odd features to set their virtually identical machines apart from the pack.

One of the strangest features I have seen on a netbook is the secondary LCD/track pad that is on the Sharp Mebius NJ netbook I talked about last week. The small secondary display accepts handwriting and turns it into text on the screen as well. If you liked the cool factor of the NJ netbook, you can get one here in America soon.

Sharp Mebius Netbook Offers Second Display

By Shane McGlaun

I have seen some strange notebooks and netbooks before, but adding a second screen to a 10-inch netbook is one of the strangest things I have seen. Sharp has introduced the new Mebius netbook for the Japanese market.

The machine has a second 4-inch LCD where the track pad would normally be. The small screen has a resolution of 854 x 480 and can show video and other content on its little screen. The screen also doubles as the track pad and can be used to input handwriting into the computer.
