Yeah I know, it sounded better in my head… anyway, check out this new Android based phone, which by chance happens to be called the Shark!
It’s not just any Android phone though, this on incorporates Telegent Mobile TV Technology, it’s the fist touchscreen based smartphone to do this actually..
The Innocomm Shark, which features a 3.2 inch WVGA (800×480) display, capacitive touchscreen, 8 megapixel autofocus camera, 3.5G connectivity, Wi-Fi and analog TV, is designed to address the growing interest in feature-rich touchscreen smartphones while entering the category at a price significantly lower than current comparable models. According to Gartner Dataquest, the smartphone market is expected to grow by nearly 50% in 2010 and 2011, outperforming basic handset growth over the next five years.
Innocomm is among a growing number of mobile device developers to build in Telegent’s free-to-air mobile TV technology as a competitive differentiator. The Shark’s analog TV feature provides consumers with mobile access to the same free-to-air television programming that they view on conventional TV sets, delivering ready access to news, sports and other preferred programming while on the go. The handset’s large, high quality display combined with touchscreen controls allows for a high quality viewing experience. The model also incorporates the ability to record TV clips to a microSD card. Innocomm plans to add digital TV capability to future models.
