Fujitsu has hit upon a novel idea of making a mark at the immensely competitive tablet market — making the tablet water tight. Maybe its not the first time we are coming across a waterproof tablet but there is no wrong in having another. Welcome the Arrows Tab that is designed to withstand an occasional splash or some rain. The tablet will be launched towards end September with NTT DoCoMo as the carrier partner with the Arrows Tab touted to be using NTT DoCoMo’s LTE-based Xi 4G service.
These apart, the specs mentioned of the Arrows Tab does paint a pretty picture of the Fujitsu tablet. Like it will be running Android 3.2 Honeycomb, sport a 10.1 inch 1280 x 800 pixel WXGA display up front, while including other goodies such as Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, b/g/n Wi-Fi, GPS, 1.3 and 5 megapixel camera at the front and rear respectively as well. Plus, the tablet will also include micro USB, micro SD card reader and a micro SIM card slot.
A dual-core TI OMAP 4430 1.0GHz processor coupled with a 1 GB RAM runs the show while on-board storage amounts to 16 GB. The Arrows Tab will also come with a digital TV tuner though it’s oriented towards working with Japanese broadcast television.
