Panasonic Announces DMC-GF2 Camera For January Launch


In September, we blogged on CrunchGear about Sharp’s entry into the Android tablet sector (the company is currently readying a 5.5-inch and a 10.8-inch version). Strangely dubbed “Galapagos”, the tablets, which will be available in Japan starting next month, will soon be joined by two smartphones carrying the same name.

Sharp today took the wraps off [JP] the so-called Galapagos 003SH and the Galapagos 005SH. Both phones share one major selling point: they both feature a naked-eye 3D display.
