It's been about a month now since we saw the Sharp Galapagos 7-inch tablet clear the FCC. There are probably some geeks out there wondering when the tablet will hit stores. Sharp has offered a launch date on the tablet for Japan and that date may be when we will see it in the US and other countries as well. The tablet will ship in late August according to the official PR.

The Galapagos A01SH 7-inch tablet has a slim LCD screen that measures 7-inches and has a resolution of 1024 x 600. The rear camera on the tablet is a 5MP unit and it has a 2MP front camera for video calling. It also has an internal modem supporting downloads at up to 42Mbps. The operating system for the tablet is Android 3.2 Honeycomb.

The little Android tablet has a very attractive design and looks really cool. The processor is a Tegra 2 dual-core from NVIDIA running at 1.2GHz. It also has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. Sharp claims the battery inside the tablet is good for about 7.5 hours of use. Pricing is unknown but with a launch only weeks away that price should get official soon.
