The Sharp Aquos SH-12C packs a 4.2in qHD screen to show off snaps captured on its 8MP sensor and video shot in 720p. Trouble is, we probably won't get a sniff of this 1.4GHz beauty. If you've got a few spare air miles, it’s out in Japan on the 20th of May.</p> <p><strong>Also</strong></p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/phone/news-nugget/sharp-aquos-3d-sh-12c-mobile-shows-off-its-twin-cams </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sharp/sharp-aquos-3d-sh-12c-mobile-shows-its-twin-cams/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/sharp/sharp-aquos-3d-sh-12c-mobile-shows-its-twin-cams/news#comments Sharp Wed, 11 May 2011 13:25:54 +0000 Luke Edwards 416420 at http://www.stuff.tv Sharp’s colossal 70-inch Aquos Quattron TV http://www.stuff.tv/sharp/sharp%E2%80%99s-colossal-70-inch-aquos-quattron-tv/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Time to whip out the Yellow Pages and hire a crane... </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="377" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/sharp-LC-70LE732U-70-inch-tv_0.jpg?1364402049" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="50" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/new-twitter-banner_3675.jpg?1364402049" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>It’s highly unlikely that Sharp unveiled the 70in LC-70LE732U with the aid of a red velvet curtain – the fabric costs would have been enormous.</p> <p>This wall-hogging, Full HD LED-backlit set boasts Netflix support, DLNA streaming and Vudu Apps, including Facebook and Twitter.</p> <p>The lack of 3D support is negated by the reasonable US$3800 price tag, although 3D sets are due for a summer release for those craving extra dimensions.</p> <p>An unnecessary extravagance?

This adds an extra yellow sub-pixel to the standard red, green and blue sub-pixels, which Sharp claims delivers vastly improved colour reproduction.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/tv-and-hi-fi/stuff/sharp-unveils-quattron-3d-tvs </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/quattron/sharp-unveils-quattron-3d-tvs/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/quattron/sharp-unveils-quattron-3d-tvs/news#comments Quattron Sharp Wed, 02 Jun 2010 05:00:00 +0000 admin 14574 at http://www.stuff.tv Sharp LC-52XS1 http://www.stuff.tv/sharp-lc-52xs1/review <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Sharp’s flagship packs an enormous amount of tech into its slim, beautifully finished chassis – but it also costs more than a car.
