Online reports suggest that Japanese electronics company Sharp is all set to launch a 10.1-inch Android tablet. The company already has 7-inchers to its credit. The 10-inch RW-T110 will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread and will come toting a 1GHz TI OMAP processor along with 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage. The company will add NFC technology to the new tablet, which will have a 6,240 mAh battery to allow users up to 9 hours of continuous use.
Sharp is likely to start shipping the 10-inch variety on March 27 launch in Japan. We don't know if this device will hitthe US shores. While the launch of Android devices is always welcome news, we don't see much reason to be excited about one that is expected to come with old version software and hardware. We know where the industry's focus is -- on faster, sleeker devices. The news of this tablet leaves us wanting more from makers like Sharp.
