Sharp to Start Supplying PV200 Wireless PDA for the U.S. Market


Sharp Corporation will start supplying the GSM/GPRS/EDGE-capable PV200 Wireless PDA to telecommunications carriers for the North American market.

In North America, “chat” culture, in which anyone can communicate with friends or colleagues in text format online, has become widespread. The wireless PDA market continues to show remarkable growth as large numbers of young people in particular use wireless PDAs that enable them to chat anywhere at anytime via a wireless Internet connection .
The PV200 is compatible with always-on connection services, enabling users to chat in real-time. It also incorporates versatile high value-added functions including a full browser, email, camera, address book, scheduler, games, and music player.
