It's without much fanfare that we learned about AT&T's Sharp FX Plus, a rather entry-level Android 2.2 Froyo smartphone that has been available since July 30. Like the Sharp FX before it, the FX Plus is positioned as a messaging phone targeting the younger set. However, it does get an upgrade with Android, and a much rounder body that smooths over some of its predecessor's rough edges.
In addition to a virtual keyboard equipped with Swype, the Sharp FX Plus has a slide-out QWERTY for composing longer texts and messages. The handset supports AT&T's 3G speeds, Wi-Fi, and GPS. It also has a 3.2-inch touch screen and a 3-megapixel camera.
The Sharp FX Plus costs $28.88 and is available exclusively at Wal-Mart and Walmart.com. PCD brought the phone to market.
