In a surprise move that will take it away from its usual Japanese market, electronics maker Sharp has announced the release of its new 3D mobile smartphone in Europe.
France will be the first of the European countries to get the new handset that has been named the Aquos Phone SH-12C in Japan and will initially be using Orange as its service provider when the device releases in October.
Users will be able to enjoy some great features on the phone including a 4.2 inch display that provides 3D access without the need for 3D glasses, two 8 megapixel cameras, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. The device will also be shipping with the Android 2.3 OS installed.

To further enjoy the 3D display capabilities users will also be able to output to an HD TV courtesy of the HDMI socket on the phone.
With 3D on mobile handsets being quite a new technology there isn’t much available to compare the new Sharp 3D Aquos with but there is the LG Optimus 3D and the HTC Evo 3D to look at.
The specifications on the three phones are almost identical, although the displays on the LG and HTC 3D handsets are slightly larger than the 4.2 inches that the Sharp 3D phone offers, although this isn’t too much of a disappointment.
