Sharp Fax Machines

The Sharp Corporation, which is located in Osaka, Japan, is one of the world's leading manufacturers of electronic equipment. The company, whose roots go back to 1912, was named after one of its first inventions, the Ever-Ready Sharp mechanical pencil. However, in 1923, the pencil business was destroyed in an earthquake, at which point the company relocated and began to design and manufacture radios. Sharp started to make televisions in 1953; in 1964 they invented the world's first all-transistor desktop calculator, and in1973, the first LCD calculator. LCD technology is still a crucial part of Sharp's product line, which includes fax machines, photocopiers, solar panels, multifunction machines, audio-visual equipment, LCD panels, projectors, microwave ovens, cash registers and flash memory. Sharp entered the world of fax machines in 1980, and ten years later marketed the world's first full-color desktop fax machine. For further research, Sharp also has a website with a full catalog of its products and user manuals.
