Waterproof Fujitsu tablet hits FCC

The OMAP-powered tablet is now coming stateside, sans 3G or 4G support

While there are heaps of Android tablets out there, not many can say that they are waterproof.

The Fujitsu F-01D will fill that niche and is now expected to come stateside. First hinted at earlier last week as the Arrows Tab, the 10.1-inch tablet will run on the dual-core OMAP 4430 CPU, have 1GB RAM, a 1280x800 resolution screen, 16GB SSD, micro-USB and microSD slots. The FCC filings indicate that the Honeycomb tablet will be arriving only with Wi-Fi support, at least initially. This is unfortunate considering that the Japanese version of the device will be GSM compatible when it launches in its native country this month.

Exactly when the tablet will land on U.S. shores is unknown, but hopefully the device will be made available before the end of the year.

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.
