The Galapagos line is a pretty impressive line of tablets from Sharp.

The company is planning to fill the gap between the two tablets by releasing the new Sharp Galapagos A01SH. It’s another Android tablet that’s got a decently sized...

Sharp’s Galapagos Android tablets look quite swish if you ask us. There are two types, the 5.5-inch and 10.8-inch versions. Both are set to land in Japan on December 10th and pre-orders will be... accepted a week beforehand, on December 3rd. There are two pieces of bad news to accompany this information.

First, we still have no clue or word as to whether or not this device is going to lan...

GfK Marketing Services Japan Ltd. have released figures that fall squarely inline with Gartner, reporting that Android OS is already the most popular in the US and has recently overtaken Symbian as... the most popular smartphone software in eastern Asia.

CrunchGear has posted a story on a new NEC tablet shaped touchscreen device that the company is supposedly preparing for business users in Japan.  The device features a touchscreen display that is... thought to be 7 to 8 inches in size.

CrunchGear has few specs at the moment, but they appear to miss an important point that can be gathered from the small image they’ve obtained.
