The new smartphone developed by Willcom is all set to stand apart from its competitors in more ways than the technical goodness collaboration between the telecom giants, Sharp and Microsoft can bring. Apparently, the new WILLCOM 03 (WS020SH) will not have any buttons on the front side. Instead, the smartphone will be decked with handy touch sensors that can function both in ‘Cursor Key Mode’ as well as ‘Dial Key Mode’ which will allow users to use the touchscreen via virtual dial/navigation keys. Of course, a full sliding QWERTY keypad does pop out in case you need to surf the net via the phone’s Opera browser or just edit, read or create files with the Windows Mobile 6.1 Classic Japanese Edition OS.
Also featuring a 3-inch WVGA LCD touch panel, a 2mp autofocus cam, W-SIM, wireless LAN and infrared communication, the Willcom 03 will be available with the ‘W-Value Select’ service plan and is expected to retail for ¥63,120 when it hits stores later in June.
