Sharp Galapagos is 7-inch tablet, runs Android 2.4, gets handled by FCC


If you've been following Pocketables for any amount of time whatsoever, you've probably noticed one thing that all of our posts have in common: everything has a screen that is or is under 7-inches big. So whenever we get a piece of news in about something that hits our sweet spot, we're all over it. 

Take a look at the (FCC filing of the) Sharp Galapagos tablet. This bad boy is running Android 2.4, which is supposedly the first version of Android tailored specifically for Android tablets with 7-inch screens (see the HTC Flyer). But other than 802.11b/g/n WiFi networking, nothing else about the Galapagos was revealed today.

Included in that "nothing else" are pricing and release dates, so I can't tell you for certain when (and if) it's coming to the US. Hopefully we'll find out some more information in the future.
