The phone, which will be available from Japanese mobile phone network Softbank, comes in eight colours – including pink – and can detect radiations between 0.005 and 9.99 microSv/h.
It also features a 4-megapixel rear camera, with a 0.3-megapixel front facing one, a 3.7in with a 854 x 480 pixels resolution, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich plus on top of that, it will be waterproof and dustproof.
Sharp somehow managed to shrink the radiation detection circuits from a handheld size to one that appears to be only a few square centimetres. This micro Geiger counter is non compliant with Japanese standards though, according to Sharp and, in theory, cannot be used for targetted measurements (e.g. if you want to know the level of radiation of a pair of melons).
