Sharp to release highend phone outside Japan, finally. The SX862 for Smartone-vodafone (Hong Kong) and TX92 for Fareastone (Taiwan). Here are the first illustrations.
Link

keep in mind that as of today Hong Kong hasn't licensed "mobile"-digital-TV services yet. and we will not hear much before late april/early may. but most probably in DVB-H (read: government's news release)
if that is true, why won't we see any hint of european release, where the market is a lot bigger. if it runs on DMB-T/H that means the phone is only for hong kong forever because mainland china does not use WCDMA and taiwan does not have DMB-T/H. if it runs on DVB-H, then it will only happen if it gets licensed properly in hk (after may/june the earliest?), singapore would be another potential market of release, and the T92 will have to be referring to the same sx863 and not something else.

does it look like the 920SH? yes it does
what is the difference? size, battery, DMB tuner (if any)
can it be exported? yes, expensive
will the DMB work in europe/taiwan? probably not, if they're sticking with DMB-T/H, which is different from the rest of the world
will the DMB work in Japan? no for sure, different standards in all cases
will the DMB work in mainland China? yes if it sticks with DMB-T/H, no if it goes to DVB-H
how ready is it? too early to comment, remember the lag between sharp 903 appearing at FCC to its release?
how much will it be? expect some HKD5000-6000 without contract. probably 3xxx with a 18-24month contract, SIM-locked no doubt.
