The CEATEC convention is going on now in Japan and so far it’s produced a lot of waterproof and ruggedized gadgets. You’d think that with what we’ve seen so far, Japanese people are clumsy, although we can’t find anything to back that claim. Tyically Japanese people are known for their organization, meticulousness to detail, and other traits that would suggest the opposite. That doesn’t help the fact that manufacturers like Asus and Fujitsu have released waterproof Android devices at this years CEATEC conference.
Engadget got their hands on the Fujitsu Arrows Tab LTE F-01D (that sure is a mouthful). This 10″ Android tablet looks and feels like an ordinary 10″ Android tablet however it’s waterproof. Not only that but it’s 3mm thicker than the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, but also lighter. That’s amazing considering the waterproof overlay.
More after the break
Engadget’s quick review talks about camera based gesture control which means you can make gestures in the air and not on the tablet, pretty cool if you ask me.
Other specs include a 10.1 inch display at 1280×768, 1ghz dual core TI Omap processor, Android 3.2 Honeycomb, 16gb of on board storage, microUSB, and a microSD Slot. Take a look at Engadget’s video here. The Fujitsu tablet is slated to arrive on NTT DoCoMo in Japan next week.
