Sharp has confirmed launch details for its Galapagos tablets, which are set to arrive in Japan – complete with an ebook and emagazine store – on December 10. The 5.5-inch EB-W51GJ-R/-S will be priced at 39,800 yen ($475), while the 10.8-inch EB-WX1GJ-B will be 54,800 yen ($654); each runs Android with a capacitive touchscreen.
The smaller Galapagos has a 1024 x 600 resolution display and is available in either red or silver; the larger model has a 1366 x 700 display and comes in black only. Sharp expect the former to be used while mobile, claiming it fits into a breast pocket and giving it a trackball for one-handed use, while the 10.8-inch slate is intended for home use.
