Sharp Corporation is a Japanese multinational corporation that designs and manufactures electronic products, headquartered in Sakai-ku, Sakai, Osaka Prefecture. Since 2016 it has been majority owned by the Taiwan-based Foxconn Group. Sharp employs more than 50,000 people worldwide.
The company was founded in September 1912 in Tokyo and takes its name from one of its founder's first inventions, the Ever-Sharp mechanical pencil, which was invented by Tokuji Hayakawa in 1915.
Sharp's Mobile Communications Division created the world's first commercial camera phone, the J-SH04, in Japan in 2000.
A camera phone is a mobile phone which is able to capture photographs and often record video using one or more built-in digital cameras. It can also send the resulting image over the telephone function.
The first mass-market camera phone was the J-SH04, a Sharp J-Phone model sold in Japan in November 2000.
It had an integrated CCD sensor, with the Sha-Mail (Picture-Mail in Japanese) infrastructure developed in collaboration with Kahn's LightSurf venture, and marketed from 2001 by J-Phone in Japan today owned by Softbank. It was also the world's first cellular mobile camera phone. It has a 110,000 pixel CMOS image sensor and a 256 color display.
The phone weights 74g, and its dimensions are 127 × 39 × 17 mm.
