The Aquos Pad SH-06F is the latest tablet on DoCoMo and part of the Summer 2014 series. It is a member of the EDGEST family too, offering thin bezel and a large display occupying 81% of the tablet's surface. The display size is 7 inches, like in the preceding SH-08E, but Sharp have managed to reduce it both in size: from 190 x 107 mm (H x W) on the SH-08E (72% screen area) to 175 x 106 mm on the SH-06F. The weight has also been reduced: from 288 grams to 233 grams.
Like the Aquos Zeta SH-04F, this Aquos Pad has been built in "hexa grip" shape that, together with the metal rim ensures the devices is easier to hold and is less like to slip out of your hands.
The screen resolution is WUXGA or 1200 x 1920 pixels, IGZO display technology + PureLED backlight system for crispier and more natural colour reproduction. The addition of a 4,200 mAh battery should guarantee several days of single-charge use of the Aquos Pad SH-06F.
To guarantee superb watching and listening experience, a DTS Sound engine has been deployed.
The hardware is no different from the rest of Sharp's latest models on DoCoMo SoftBank and AU: Underneath the hood we find the familiar Snapdragon MSM8974AB clocked a 4 x 2.3 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of built-in storage, and support for microSDXC cards of up to 128 GB.
The main camera is 8 megapixels and the rear one is 2.1 MP.
To meet office needs, the SH-06F can be equipped with an external Bluetooth keyboard - Kingsoft Office for Android package is preinstalled.
Connectivity is ensured by an LTE module (quad-band: 2GHz/1.7GHz/1.5GHz/800MHz) for up to 150 Mbps download and 50 Mbps upload speeds, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and USB (tethering possible via all three), OneSeg and FullSeg TV, Mobile Wallet + NFC, but no InfraRed, and no NOTTV support.
Naturally, the tablet is waterproof (IPX5/7).
The Aquos Pad SH-06F is only offered in white.
