Fujitsu waterproof ARROWS tablet now available in Japan

The kitchen-safe 10.1-inch Honeycomb tablet launches in Japan for $779

If for whatever reason you wish to use your brand new tablet underwater or while under heavy rain, Fujitsu has got you covered with the new waterproof ARROWS tablet.

The 10.1-inch tablet utilizes a dual-core OMAP 4 CPU, 1280x800 resolution display, 1GB RAM, front-and-rear cameras, Dolby Mobile Audio and a host of connectivity features such as Bluetooth, microSD reader, GPS and a SIM card slot.

Of course, the waterproof build is what will attract the most attention from buyers. Fortunately, its durable shell hasn't added too much weight at only 599 grams (1.32 pounds), which is even slightly less than the iPad 2. It’s worth noting, however, that the Fujitsu tablet is noticeably thicker at 11.3mm (0.445 inches). But overall, the tablet is expected to last up to 10 hours with constant video playback.

The ARROWS tablet was confirmed back in August of 2011 and was also found at the FCC for approval on the same month. Still, the tablet has yet to become available outside out Japan. The tablet currently retails for ¥59,800 ($779) and ¥67,800 ($883) for the 16GB and 32GB models, respectively.
