Sharp unveiled its first Windows 8.1 tablet at this week's CEATEC 2013 show in Japan. With specs superior to current and upcoming Windows 8 tablets, including Microsoft's Surface 2, the Sharp Mebius Pad is currently on its way to become IPX5, IPX7, and IP5X certified for protection against water and dust.

Unfortunately, the list of features is not complete and the device may not arrive too soon in Europe or the United States. These are the main specs of the Sharp Mebius Pad tablet:

  • Processor: quad-core Intel Atom Z3370
  • Display: 10.1-inch IGZO panel with 2,560X1,600 pixels
  • Operating system: Windows 8.1 (Office bundled for free, Pro version available for a price)
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE
  • Optional accessories: stylus pen
  • Release date: early 2014

Most chances are that this tablet will not leave the Japanese market but this may change since pricing and availability are not official yet. Since this device is the first of its kind, we will keep you posted as new information about it becomes available.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
