Sharp and BitFlash today announced an Electronic Document Display System that enables complete business documents such as word processing files, spreadsheets, presentations, etc. to be easily viewed on mobile phones. The system includes a server component that converts documents to the vector-based SVG-Tiny format. The other component is a viewer on the phone, with rendering optimized for small LCD displays, and smooth zoom in/out viewing. The technology will ship first on the Sharp V601SH phone for Vodafone Japan. Sharp plans to deploy the technology with additional carriers worldwide.
