Sharp's tablet evolution continues with the Galapagos A01SH

Sharp has gone official with its 7-inch Honeycomb tablet - the Sharp Galapagos A01SH.

In the past we've seen Galapagos eBook readers, 10.8-inch tabs and 5.5-inch phones coming under the Galapagos banner, but this is the first 7-inch tablet that we've seen. And the good news is that it's running the correct version of Android for such a sized device, Honeycomb 3.2.

It's powered by a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 chip, has 1GB of RAM, packs a 5-megapixel camera on the back and a 2-megapixel one on the front, and can shoot 720p video.

The display has a 1024x600 resolution and there's both Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity. Storage is 8GB, expandable through microSD, and you'll get over 7 hours of battery life too.

No price or availability details yet, but don't hold your breath waiting for a UK launch.
