Sharp FX Plus Adds Android, For Sale Via Wal-Mart
Wal-Mart has quietly made the Sharp FX Plus handset available from its web site. The FX Plus is a successor to last year's FX, and makes a big leap by graduating from quick-messaging device to full-fledged smartphone with Android 2.2 Froyo on board. The FX Plus features a 3.2-inch touch display, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 3 megapixel camera with video capture, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Other features include a 3.5mm headset jack, support for microSD cards up to 32GB (2GB card included), 3G data speeds up to 7.2Mbps, and GPS. The FX Plus is available exclusively from Wal-Mart for free on contract, or for the full retail price of $349.99.
