Sharp recently announced its latest smartphone – the Sharp AQUOS 104SH. It is officially the first device which runs on the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich Operating System. You heard it right!

Some notable specs of this device includes the 4.5 inch HD touchscreen display, sporting a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Sharp AQUOS 104SH is powered by the same 1.5 GHz Texas Instruments OMAP 4460 dual-core processor, which has been used in the upcoming Google Nexus Prime smartphone. On the back of the device, you will find a 12.1 megapixel camera with full HD (1080) video recording capabilities. On the front-side, you will find a 3 megapixel camera for video calls.
