I'm pretty sure this is a native 240 panel.
Either way, Aquomotion is backlight strobing. It adds a blanking interval in the backlight to improve the apparent motion handling. This is in lieu of additional frame interpolation and can be quite effective. A number of mfrs. do something similar to turn 240s into even "960s".
That said, last year's Sharp Aquomotion 240 was barely detectable on their 120Hz panels. So perhaps this year's 480 will be more noticeable and perhaps better.
There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working. (Oh, and plasma didn't die because of logistics problems, nor does OLED ship in big boxes because it comes from Korea.)
