Japan’s three big mobile carriers are offering more than 100 handsets per year, and some of them are quite unique. The latest limited edition is the Sharp SH-09C [JP], a handset developed in cooperation with French luxury crystal glass maker Baccarat and distributed by mobile carrier NTT Docomo.
Docomo says callers will see a Baccarat glass or tumbler whenever they receive or make a call. Baccarat fans can also choose among special Baccarat wall papers, fonts and icons.
Technically, the phone is based on the Sharp SH-01C that Docomo showed last November (3.4-inch screen with 480×854 resolution, 14.1MP CCD camera with full HD recording, HDMI port, DLNA support, Wi-Fi).
Japanese buyers will be able to lay their hands on the limited edition phone (5,000 units) next month.
