This Summer 2013 collection Sharp and Docomo have more than smartphones to show - behold the Aquos Pad SH-08E tablet.
This is a significant upgrade from the first Aquos Pad, the SHT21, released by AU KDDI last year: the SH-08E too has a 7-inch screen built using Sharp's revolutionary IGZO LCD technology. But the resolution is now 1920 x 1200 pixels, and the processor powering it is Qualcomm's latest, the quad-core Snapdragon 600 (APQ8064T) clocked at 1.7 GHz. The operating memory has also been doubled - to 2 GB, and so has built-in storage space - to 32 GB, naturally expandable by SDXC cards.
The Aquos Pad SH-08E has an 8.1 megapixel main camera with a quick-start time of 0.4 seconds and a 2.1 megapixel front-facing camera.
Connectivity-wise, the SH-08E comes fully-fledged: LTE, 3G and GSM networks are supported unlike the AU KDDI model which only supports LTE and AU's WIN CDMA. Onboard we also find Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, Infrared, NOTTV with a time-shift function and Full Seg terrestrial digital and analog TV with recording capabilities, GPS + A-GPS.
The IGZO panel also allows convenient pen input, made easier by the device's lightweight body of just 285 grams and 99 mm thickness (107 mm in the thickest part).
Like all other phones and tablets released in Japan lately, the Aquos Pad SH-08E is dust- and waterproof (IPX5 / IPX7). The battery has a capacity of 4200 mAh. For the time being, it will only be available in white.
The SH-08E runs Android 4.2 and has Sharp's Feel UX user interface.
