The company could be getting ready for a release of a 5.5-, 7- and 10.8-inch tablet

More tablet FCC filings have reached public eyes, this time dealing with a possible 7-inch tablet from Japanese electronics manufacturer Sharp Corporation.

The tablet, called the Galapagos tablet, is confirmed by the FCC test results to include 802.11/a/b/n WiFi. Unfortunately, the source refrained from disclosing any additional information on the core specifications of the device. The 7-inch Galapagos tablet currently has the FCC ID EB-W71LJ-H.

Engadget notes that a 10.8-model with the ID EB-WX1GJ made it to the FCC sometime ago as well and even hinted at a 5.5-inch EB-W51GJ model, all made by Sharp. With three tablets lined up for testing, Sharp may be gearing up for a release announcement on its wide range of upcoming tablet offerings.
