Sharp Plans on Exporting More Cell Phones Internationally

Sharp Solar Phone

Although Sharp is the biggest cell phone manufacturer in Japan (in terms of market share), the company is uncomfortable seeing the domestic market getting smaller.  In a recently published press release, Sharp has announced that they are planning on strengthening its mobile phone line for the international market.

The first in its plan is to export one of its big sellers to China:  A solar-powered cell phone.  The Solar Hybrid SH6230C has a solar cell module, a 2.9-inch LCD screen, and 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus. 

The SH6230C, which comes in blue and white, is the first solar mobile phone that Sharp would market outside Japan.  It will become available for Chinese users this February, costing about US$500, but Sharp announces that the solar powered phone may hit the shelves of other countries as well.
