A Tablet a Day?
We all know that the Galapagos islands offer a unique and Darwinian experience and so its somewhat strange that Sharp has named its new tablet devices as well as a new e-bookstore, ‘The Galapagos system’.
Targeted for release in Japan the two Android tablets also include a bookstore with some 30K titles including newspapers, magazines and books. The devices are 5.5” and 10.8 and will allow for vertical writing and special Japanese characters.
Another day and another big hitter enters the Tablet races.
