Sharp SH-06D NERV Edition Smartphone: Must see for Evangelion Fans!
Published on March 15th, 2012
Sharp has decided to make one of its Android smartphone themed after the popular Anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion. The smartphone is called Sharp SH-06D NERV Edition and this will come out on NTT Docomo.
I have been an Evangelion fan for so long now, and in fact these was one of the first Anime I watch which made me an Anime Fanatic. I was surprised to see the NERV’s logo on a smartphone. Evangelion fans out there, this is a must see and must have android smartphone.
The Sharp SH-06D NERV Edition will be released this June 2012, in line with the newest Rebuild of Evangelion, Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo. This is the third part of the rebuilt I have been waiting for years now.
If you look closely at the Sharp SH-06D NERV edition’s picture above (and if you have watch Evangelion before), the phone truly reflects the world of Evangelion. It looks and feels like a NERV’s military equipment or device. The NERV’s logo is also noticeable on the back of the SH-06D.
The Sharp SH-06D NERV edition UI elements and built-in contents are created by Hideaki Anno’s Khara Studio. Aside from that, the phone features a 4.5-inch 720p display, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
There are no information yet regarding the Sharp SH-06D NERV edition price or release date. But this special edition (also limited in terms of quantity), will be showcased this coming Anime Expo 2012 on March 31 and April 1 at the NOTTV booth in Makuhari Messe, Japan.
I hope I can get one of these NERV-issued smartphone! And I wonder when will they start making Gundam-inspired smartphone. ^_^
