Sharp is giving it another go in the mobile phone market with the release of the FX with AT&T. The features are on the bare bones side, but  the price is low enough that this one might have a shot.

The messaging phone sports a slide-out full QWERTY keyboard plus a full touchscreen depending how you like to type your IMs, e-mails and text messages. You've also got a packed suite of AT&T applications, including support for AT&T Mobile TV, Navigator (maps, turn-by-turn directions), and Social Net, which gathers all of your most necessary social networking portals into one spot.

Along with Bluetooth 2.1 and an MP3 player, there is a built-in 2.0-megapixel camera. Sure, it records video too, but no cell phone camera should have an MP count that low anymore.

Available starting July 25, the Sharp FX will cost $99.99 with the signing of a two-year service contract. Actually, you'll have to front $149.99 and wait for a $50 AT&T promo card to arrive in the mail.
