Sharp shows 7-inch Galapagos A01SH tablet with Android 3.2

Sharp Galapagos A01SH tablet reaches Japan

Sharp and EAccess picked Wednesday to unveil their tablet running Android 3. The seven-inch Galapagos A01SH runs off of Android 3.2 to get a true tablet-native OS in a smaller size. While its 1024x600 display isn't as exotic as the 5.5- and 10.8-inch slates, it will come bundled with a 42Mbps 3G mobile router to hop online.

The inside will be familiar to Android tablet buyers with a dual-core Tegra 2, 1GB of RAM, and both five-megapixel back and two-megapixel front cameras. It outfits a 7.5-hour battery (six hours for video). A light 8GB of storage is built-in but, through Android 3.2, can use a microSDHC slot for media.

Both companies are planning a quick turnaround for the launch and will have it in stores as an E-Mobile device by the end of this month. Neither has confirmed pricing, though EAccess is promising a "competitive" price.

Sharp has promised to eventually bring its Galapagos tablets to the US and just recently passed the A01SH through the FCC, but it's unclear if the new model is specifically intended to sell abroad. [via Impress]
