Sharp Galapagos 7-inch tablet gets FCC approval

The latest Sharp Galapagos tablet has passed though the FCC certification process. The new 7-inch tablet fits between a 5.5-inch and a 10.8-inch in Sharp's Android tablet range. The only details to emerge from the FCC testing reveal, unsurprisingly, that it is equipped with an 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi radio.

A visit to the Sharp Japan Galapagos website does not yield any additional details either. The tablet has yet to be released in its home market with only the 10.8- and 5.5-inch tablets currently on sale. Android 2.4 could be a possibility for the device, which is said to be the first version of the Android OS with optimizations for 7-inch tablet devices.
