The d-41a is the first tablet Sharp make for docomo's dtab line. Its release was initially planned for early summer but was saw some delays and will start selling on 28 August 2020.
The tablet has a 10.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. It's not an IGZO display, so not particularly energy-saving, but the 6500 mAh battery should compensate for it.
Importantly, the d-41a is both waterproof (IPX5/8) and dustproof (IP6X) and, to quote the source, "you can cook while watching the recipe in the kitchen, enjoy a relaxing video in the bath, and enjoy it anywhere in the house".
The d-41a is barely a "powerful" device, when compared to flagship smartphones, with its 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of built-in ROM, expandable using microSD cards. A mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor is used to drive this device.
Mobile connectivity is achieved using a nano-size SIM card. LTE/W-CDMA frequencies are supported and the tablet is advertised as having the fasted internet connection on a tablet (as of summer 2020) with up to 400 Mbps download and 75 Mbps upload speeds.
Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac are supported, including tethering.
All GPS systems are supported: GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, QZSS (Michibiki).
The d-41a has an 8-megapixel rear camera with an aperture size of f/2.0 and a front camera with exactly the same specifications.
The Sharp-made docomo tablet measures 170 x 246 x 8.2 mm (exluding protrusions) and weighs 491 grams. It comes with a stand that can be rotated and whose angle can be adjusted.
It is available in two colour versions: black or white.
