Fujitsu’s recent revelation of a waterproof tablet did create some excitement in the tablet segment. Why not, for here finally is a tablet device that you can carry not only to the poolside but maybe into the pool itself. Or if you love to get drenched in the rain once in a while, the Fujitsu F-01D won’t get in the way.
However, for all of these to become a reality, one has to wait until the 10 inch Android tablet gets past FCC and is ready for a market launch. The tablet will only be Wi-Fi compliant in the US, and one explanation for that is Fujitsu is trying to get an FCC certification just to ensure those entering the US with the Fujitsu tablet will have it easy. The tablet right now is a Japan only affair, and there is no official word yet from its Japanese manufacturer as to when it would be seen on the other side of the Pacific.
