Vodafone gx30.



Sharp recently submitted an application for approval by the FCC for the GX-30, its latest GSM handset. Not only does it feature an upgrade to the GX-20's amazing 65K color screen – this time it's 262K colors – but it also features an SD slot for storing photos, videos, and music files. Did I mention it has Bluetooth? And a 1 megapixel camera? It looks like we are finally getting phones that will, in some ways, compete with the latest Japanese offerings.

The GX-30 also features 40 voice polyphonics, a 7 color light which can be used as a camera flash or torch (already seen in the GX-20), along with the ability to record short video clips. A generous 8MB of memory is included for multimedia storage and Java games. Finally, we can confirm that the GX-30 has received approval from the Bluetooth SIG for Headset and Serial Port support.

It looks like Sharp has really listened to what its users wanted – I’ve heard many a prospective GX-20 buyer complain "if only it had Bluetooth"! Sharp will be offering the GX-30 through the Vodafone network, as it has done with the GX-10 and GX-20. No official release date has been confirmed.

I only wish it would come to a proper network like orange but it's a vodafone exclusive and signature phone.

It's an old phone anyway but it's new to GSM and anyone outside Japan.
