The people at Sharp have announced a brand new 7-inch Android tablet that will be launched in Japan complete with an NFC interface for commercial interactions. This Android tablet will only support Japanese FeliCa cards at the start, but we can expect additional card support in the near future. This Sharp RW-T107 unit will be able to be used in stores to read membership cards, IDs, loyalty cards, and more - get some coupons to grab some awesome cheap food and such!
Sharp has been dropping hints about its 3D smartphone intentions, revealing that the company's glasses-free 3.8-inch 3D display - which the company previewed at IFA 2010 - will not only be hitting Japanese devices next month but, in 2011, phones in the US, India and China. Sharp didn't tell The Mainichi Daily News which exact devices would be getting an overseas launch, but we're guessing they'll resemble the Japanese models for NTT DoCoMo and Softbank.
Yesterday, Sharp announced that the company's GALAPAGOS mobile phones would be getting 3D gaming, courtesy of Capcom and others, but that's not all the 3D love the company has in store for the future. Sharp has officially unveiled their brand new BD-HP90 3D Blu-ray player as well, packing plenty of features into an extremely small package.
HP's new Touchpad tablet is the first device to publicly commit to Qualcomm's new Snapdragon APQ8060, and now the chipset company is spilling the beans on exactly what its dual-core can do. The third-generation of Snapdragon, Qualcomm pairs the APQ8060 with an integrated Adreno 220 GPU (with twice the graphics processing power of its predecessor) to offer Full HD 3D support.
Details have come out for Disney’s new phone it plans to debut next month in Japan. The phone looks like a Sharp Galapagos 003SH powered by a Disney themed version of Froyo version 2.2 of Google’s Android.
Welcome back after an extended holiday weekend! Many of you've got your new Android smartphones and giant televisions and weirdo oddities under your belt (or maybe you had even more fun by buying those things as presents) and you've come back, hungry for some tech news! Well you're in luck, especially if you DIDN'T pick up your device of choice yet, especially if you live in Korea (where you'll find the LG LU3000, faster than Galaxy S, - that is of course if you dismiss the fact that you might be going to war soon,) in Japan (where Sharp is very soon releasing their fabulous Galapagos tablets,) or the USA (where you can get a FREE G2.) Of course, if you're in Taiwan this week, you'll probably flip out over a ASUS Eee Note EA-800, and if you're in the USA... well... how about a pulse rifle? Or I bet you're on the lookout for a SlashGear Cyber Monday Round Up?! All this and MORE on SlashGear Morning Wrap-up!
Today we review a tiny yet quite powerful speaker by the name of JAMBOX, discuss What Zuckerberg Never Said About the iPad, and review the lovely Acer Aspire 8943G. Then there's a hands on of the LG Optimus One and we toss a Motorola Defy in the pool with all the duckies and what looks to be that same pool cleaner they had in Paranormal Activity 2. Scary. Calvin Klein designs a set of 3D sunglasses and AT&T attack T-Mobile's 4G network claims. It's a fight!
