Softbank’s Aquos Fulltouch 931SH comes with nearly netbook standard hi-res screen

I don’t know if I’ll put the new Aquos Fulltouch 931SH slider phone from Softbank as an overgrown iPhone, or as a Yanko Design concept brought to life. It features a 5.2 megapixel camera, 1-seg TV tuner, Bluetooth with A2DP, 3G reception, and above all, a 3.8-inch 1024 x 480 pixel resolution screen. Uh huh, that’s near netbook res territory.

“Standard” netbook screen resolution these days is pegged at 1024 x 600. That’s just 120 pixel difference there! It would surely be great in use while watching with its built-in 1-seg tuner, but for everything else it would be overkill on a device of this size.

When I mentioned earlier that it looked like a concept brought to life, I was thinking about this particular concept, which takes the iPhone and extends its screen vertically, much like how the Aquos Fulltouch 931SH adds .3-inches to the iPhone’s screen (it looks similar).

As with Softbank releases, this one will be made available only in Japan. So if you’re up for a short trip towards the land of the rising sun before Christmas, this Aquos slider can be yours.
