Sharp to Launch Its Solar-Powered Cell-Phone in China


As the Japanese mobile market continues to shrink, Sharp, the largest cell-phone manufacturer in the Land of the Rising Sun, decided it’s time to expand beyond national borders.

During the last fiscal year, Sharp sold only 1.6 million mobile phones outside Japan. That’s only 20% of its production, and management ruled it’s time to take their business global. Their first major move is to market their Solar Hybrid SH6230C mobile phone in China. The first Sharp solar-powered phone to be marketed outside Nippon comes with a solar cell module, 2.9 inch LCD display and a 5 megapixel camera.
