Wow, you guys gave a lot of really helpful information. I am working on tracking down the information on the datasheet. Anyway to track down a connector for this little bugger to attach to a breadboard for a little proto work?

Well, I am pretty new to the whole scene of making one's own way in electronics and I am pretty sure I have bit off WAY more than I can chew with this little project. I wanted to design a touch screen interface for a advanced digital thermostat with logins and automated features for changing temps depending on times of day and if anyone was in the room etc. Sounds great, but I want to take it one step at a time. First, the display.
I have an old TFT from a Palm LifeDrive that I wasn't using anymore and I thought maybe I could repurpose that little bugger for better things. After taking everything apart though. I realize I don't have a datasheet, how the pins are setup, or where to buy the connection to stick this thing on a prototype board or even make permanent.
Basically, I need help finding the data for this little thing, and maybe some good links or advice how to hook this thing up, where to buy stuff for it and maybe a little direction in making some kind of decent shield for it. It would be greatly appreciated.
Here's what I know:

Sharp LQ038J7DH53 170-10142-XX Rev. A
170-10142-00
