Sharp D4 Runs Windows Vista

Intel announced a new line of processors called Atom a few months ago. The processors were specifically designed for Mobile Internet Devices and can reach speeds of up to 1.87GHz currently.

With that kind of processing power being made available to mobiles, they are now capable of much more. With this, Sharp have announced a new cell phone named the D4 which will run Windows Vista. The new phone from Sharp will not use the full 1.87GHz, but instead will go for a 1.33GHz processor which is still a good choice for speed. 1GB of 533MHz DDR2 memory will be onboard and storage will be provided by a 1.8″ hard drive with a capacity of 40GB.

Vista Premium SP1 will run on the D4 and input will be provided by a full QWERTY keyboard. On the connectivity side of things, you can expect everything too from Wi-Fi 802.11b/g to Bluetooth and USB. The impressive screen resolution will display 1024 x 600 pixels across the 5 inch display.

When launched in June the D4 will cost a hefty $1275 USD. However at first, this device will just be available in Japan on a 1600 Yen/Month deal.
