In the middle of March, Evangelion and Docomo announced that they’d release a new Evangelion themed phone, similar to the SH-06A Nerv phones that they released almost 3 years ago to coincide with the release of Evangelion 2.0 where the phone is featured within the movie. The SH-06D is also made by Sharp, but unlike the previous model, is a touchpad smartphone that will run Android (2.3 Gingerbread). It also boasts a 4.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution and 16 million colors. The phones will come pre-loaded with some Evangelion apps and a theme designed by Studio Khara.
The phone itself is on display at the NOTTV booth at the Anime Expo 2012 (held at Makuhari Messe in Japan) this weekend and some first look pictures have been snapped of it.
IT Media uploaded a youtube video and provided some more pictures:
