Other features include a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash, a 2-megapixel secondary camera for video calls. The battery will deliver up to 7.5-hours of battery life. The Sharp Galapagos A01SH will arrive in Japan later this month.
Sharp has announced that it will be bringing its Galapagos Android tablets to the US. These tablets are already being sold over in Japan and were previously rumored to arrive in the US during the holidays, but alas, it never arrived.
However, now they are finally arriving and they should be available in 5-inch and 10-inch sizes. The tablets will be available in 3G versions, instead of the Wi-Fi-only versions in Japan. Sharp will likely have the tablets on display at CES 2011. Better late than never.
Sharp has introduced a pair of glasses-free 3D Android phones over in Japan. The Galapagos 003SH and 005SH are both for Japan’s Softbank network and both devices offer a 3.8-inch 800 x 480 pixel 3D-capable display and are powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and Android 2.2 Froyo.
The 005SH has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a 8-megapixel camera while the 003SH has a 9.6-megapixel camera capable of 720p video. The 3D content will keep you busy without glasses, with games like Mega Man, Resident Evil and Ghosts ‘n Goblins.
Sharp missed out on the Tablet wars and are instead focusing on an eBook reader. Their new Galapagos e-reading tablets will hit stores in December and there are two models available. One has a 5.5-inch LCD screen with a 1024 x 600 resolution while the second is larger with a 10.8-inch display featuring a 1366 x 800 pixel resolution.
They also have a track ball for navigation that you can use like a PC mouse and can flip the pages. Both are loaded with Wi-Fi and are heading to the Japanese market. Hopefully they will hit the US soon as well.
