NTT DoCoMo is gearing up to release their first LTE-enabled tablets, a pair that includes the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and a new slate from Fujitsu, the ARROWS Tab LTE F-01D. While the Galaxy Tab is the same device we have become familiar with in other parts of the world, the Fujitsu tablet is something new altogether. Along with its dual-core OMAP 4 CPU, 10.1-inch screen, and Android Honeycomb installation, the ARROWS Tab features a waterproof design and “Hand Gesture Control.” The latter feature apparently allows for touch-free control of the tablet while the former allows Fujitsu’s first Honeycomb tablet to be the perfect bathtub companion.
Both tablets should become available next month, though a newly filed lawsuit on Apple’s behalf has the potential to create the same problems for the Galaxy Tab’s release in Japan as it has in other regions of the world.
i wonder if it would be possible to file a class action lawsuit against apple claiming that they are denying consumers access to alternatives to their product. there has to be something that the actual public can do to help put an end to the litigious business model they use.
How hard is it to make a product water proof? Or at least water resistant? I mean, I cant imagine it’s all that hard to protect a device from a 3-5second splash in the toilet (we’ve all been there). Soon, I think, water-resistivity should become commonplace
this waterproof is to mean working under rain or drop into the river etc. It is surely a pretty good asset. But i am designing something to beat up all makers…wait n see…!
