Sharp Galapagos to compete with iPad 2, Samsung Galaxy Tab next year
Sharp will join United States tablet market.
Sharp will be bringing its Galapagos Android tablet next year in United States. The tablet has two sizes, 5.5 and 10.8 (in inches).
In Japan, the 5.5 inch version has 1024×600 resolution, and worth 39,000 Yen ($473), while the 10.8 inch version, has a 1366×800 resolution, and a tag price of 54,800. These devices are Wi-Fi only, and doesn’t support 3G.
But the Sharp Galapagos versions for United States consumers will support 3G, a report claims.
Also next year, Apple inc is expected to introduce the iPad 2, and Samsung might introduce the Galaxy Tab 2. Looks like Sharp will try to compete with these two popular tablets based on their tablets’ sizes. the 5.5 Sharp tablet will most likely compete with the Galaxy Tab, which is a 7-inch tablet, while the 10.8 will try its luck against iPad 2.
