Sharp 7-inch tablet shows up at FCC

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
