A head-on collision between Android, Disney and Japan was always going to produce something a little out-of-the-ordinary. Disney Mobile has announced the succinctly-named Disney Mobile smartphone, Disney-branded Android device which seems to be based on the Sharp Galapogos 003SH. The phone, which for the moment is exclusive to Japan, runs Android 2.2 Froyo and sports a "large" 3D LCD screen alongside a 9.6-megapixel camera. Disney is even offering a choice of choice of "cool and cute" branded cases alongside the mouse-themed device. Just what I always wanted!
The chances of this phone ever seeing the light of day in the West are pretty slim, but at the very least we can hope that someone manages to port that awesome home-screen clock widget across to other devices. In the ridiculously unlikely event that you're reading this from Japan and are actually in the market for such a phone, you'll be able to pick up the Disney Mobile smartphone this February.
