Sharp Miracle

Continuing the relentless pursuit of integrating every common piece of office equipment into a single device, Sharp has announced their new "Miracle" series of all-in-one devices. They of course offer the usual blend of fax/copier/scanner, but that all happened like 10 years ago. In this day and age, you should expect your all-in-one devices to have cordless handsets, USB or LAN connectivity, a memory card slot, and a 4.3-inch color display, right? And while Sharp was at it, they also threw in the ability to synchronize with mobile phones via memory card. Japan-only, but you may have already guessed that.
