Sharp was the first company to marry glasses-free 3D and Android and launch at a large scale, though availability of such handsets never crept farther than Japan. Since then, companies like LG and HTC have thrown into the 3D game and introduced the technology into their own 3D lineups, taking it another step by adding dual cameras for 3D video and image capture. Not to be outdone, Sharp is introducing the Aquos Phone SH-12C, their first device with twin 3D-ready cameras on the back. The cameras max out at 8MP for crisp images to display on a qHD 540×960 resolution display measuring 4.2-inches.
The phone will launch with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and is expected to land in Japan on May 20th. No word on when or if we might get this one elsewhere.
