    The Sharp/NTT DoCoMo SH505iS looks very nice indeed, even better than Casio's A5403CA.

    Here the info on DoCoMo's latest beauty (taken from http://www.mobileburn.com/review.jsp?Page=8&Id=561 and http://www.mobiletechnews.com/info/2003/12/10/115831.html ):

    The SH505iS camera offers an effective resolution of 2.02 mega pixels and a recorded resolution of 2.0 mega pixels (photos with maximum 1,224 x 1,632 pixels). Still photography is enhanced with 25-step, 20x zoom.

    Auto focus works in four modes: normal, close-up, self-portrait and landscape. Focus lock enables subjects to be kept in focus even when placed off-center in the photo. This is DoCoMo's second 2G camera phone equipped with auto focus. The P505iS, the world's first auto-focus 2G phone, was released on November 12, 2003.

    The camera takes up to 18 consecutive shots in the default format, nine consecutive shots with modified color tone / brightness, or five consecutive shots with superimposed frames.

    The phone's main screen is a 2.4-inch, 262,144-color CGS QVGA LCD and the sub-display is a 1.2-inch 65, 536-color TFT LCD. The phone's operation menu and incoming e-mails can with viewed on the sub-display. The sub-display can also be used while the handset is closed to send e-mail messages (drafts) stored in the phone.

    The phone comes with a scheduler that files information by various categories, such as name and content. In previous models, scheduled information was accessed by navigating through several screens, but the SH505iS scheduler has a convenient standby screen for inputting dates to retrieve information quickly.

    The new models will be available through all DoCoMo sales channels. The price of the handsets will be open (unfixed). Optional accessory kits for the N505iS, and the SH505iS, including battery pack, AC adaptor, desktop holder and 16-MB mini SD memory card, will cost 5,500 yen. The SO505iS optional accessory kit, which also costs 5,500 yen, comes with a 16-MB Memory stick Duo*.

    * These prices apply to the Kanto-Koushinetsu region. Prices may vary in the regional markets of the eight subsidiary companies.

    20x zoom on a phone! Too bad it's for the Japanese market only - it could well be the best 'normal' (ie. non-PDA functionality) phone in the world, it's certainly the most sophisticated! It will be amazing when phones of this calibre hit Europe!
