Sharp enters the Android Tablet race, but with a less than stellar device.
Sharp, the well known Japanese manufacturer is finally going to enter the Android tablet market with Sharp A01SH Galapagos. The 7″ tablet will run Android 3.0 Honeycomb and features 1024×600 resolution, which is same as that of Samsun Galaxy Tab.
Under the hood it packs industry standard 1 GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB of RAM alongside 8GB of internal storage. There is also a 2-megapixel front-facing and 5-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and LED flash. Connectivity features include Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. There is no 3G/GSM model available for this one, which is a down side to anyone who is frequently on the move.
The Sharp A01SH Galapagos goes on sales this month in Japan, and later it will debut worldwide. Its not so fancy specs don’t make it stand out of the crowd and this one appears to be just an experiment from Sharp to check the tablet demand without making any dent in the market.
