Fujitsu’s ruggedized Honeycomb Android tablet blazing wtih 4G LTE for Japan
The key factor that differentiates the Fujitsu Arrows Tab from all other tablets is that its rugged and runs Android 3.1 Honeycomb, of course, is its not the only ruggedized Android on the street. Competition is good. We heard rumors about the Arrows Tab being waterproof, but it looks like it’s all set up to be military-level spec to battle the bumps and bruises that it’ll surely experience along the way. It’s high-spec with 4G LTE to work with Docomo’s Xi network. Yeah, as with so many other Fujitsu products, this will likely gear up to be a Japan thing.
Going through the rest of the spec sheet, we find a 10.1-inch capacitive multitouch display (not sure how rugged that can be; all other rugged tablets I’ve seen are resistive), the same dual-core TI OMAP 4430 1GHz processor as the BlackBerry PlayBook, 1GB of RAM, 16GB storage, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, WiFi-b/g/n, GPS, dual cameras (5MP in the back), microUSB, microSD, and microSIM, along with a 1-seg TV tuner.
It’s rugged, so it’s a bit beefier at 599 grams. Fujitsu and Docomo haven’t confirmed it yet, but a formal announcement is expected early next month.
