Sharp Galapagos Tablets up for grabs

Japan-only efforts outed, but no news on global release plans.

Sharp’s been talking up is Galapagos tablets since September. And now two models, the 5.5-inch Mobile and 10.8-inch Home, have hit the shelves in the tech giant’s native Japan. Sadly though, there’s no word on when us Brits will be getting a taste of the action.

The 5.5-inch slate has a 1024 x 600 panel, with the 10.8-inch version clocking in at 1366 x 800. Each model comes with Wi-Fi and will play nice with Sharp’s much vaunted e-bookstore, which is set to offer thousands of books, mags and papers, which can be delivered automatically. Jobs and Murdoch take note.

The 5.5-inch Mobile model costs £303, while the 10.8-inch Home edition will set Japanese gadget gurus back £417. Not bad for a pair of iPad rivals.
