Sharp Introduces A New 7″ Android Tablet



It seems like everywhere you turn a new tablet is being introduced. This time it’s the nice folks at Sharp in Japan who have introduced a new 7″ tablet.  The Sharp Galapagos A01SH is Sharp’s third Android tablet.  This will be one of only a handful of 7″ Android tablets with Android 3.2 Honeycomb. Other 7″ form factor tablets like the original Samsung Galaxy Tab and the HTC Flyer came with previous, phone versions of Android.

Sharp introduced two other Android tablets earlier this year. They were the Sharp Galapagos 5.5″ and a 10.8″ version. As you can see they are staying away from the traditional size factors. Most of the specs come right out of the Honeycomb tablet playbook. Under the hood it has a 1ghz dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. It also features a rear facing and front facing camera and 8gb of internal storage. There is no word on external storage via a microSD or full size SD slot.

The guys over at liliputing have said that the Galapagos 7″ tablet has one ugly, thick bezel and are hopeful that it’s just the rendering of the device.

Sharps other tablets stuck to Asia in an attempt to take on Sony in the e-reader, and soon to be tablet space.  We’re not sure if this tablet will stay in Japan or make it’s way over to the U.S.  The tablet comes in wifi only and is said to be packaged with a mobile broadband router.
