AT&T introduces the Sharp FX

The Sharp FX is yet another quick messaging phone for AT&T, but this one also supports AT&T Mobile TV, AT&T's live mobile television service.

AT&T just added the Sharp FX to its lineup today, and if it looks a lot like the Sidekick, it's because Sharp was also the manufacturer behind many of the latest Sidekick handsets. It has a touch screen plus a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, an MP3 player, a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.1, the att.net HTML browser, instant messaging, e-mail, and social network support. It's also compatible with AT&T's cloud services like AT&T Address Book.

Mobile TV fans will also be happy to know that the Sharp FX also supports AT&T Mobile TV, AT&T's live mobile TV service. It gives you 24-7 access to live and time-shifted programming from a variety of network and cable providers. Do note that it costs $9.99 a month.

The Sharp FX will be available starting July 25 for $99.99. (It's actually $149.99, but you get a $50 mail-in rebate in the form of a promotion card.) A new two-year service agreement is required, plus a minimum $20 messaging or a combo of messaging and data plan.
