Sharp are entering the media tablet market with their Galapagos cloud-service e-reader tablets. The EB-WX1GJ, which the EB-W51GJ big brother, started selling in Japan in December 2010, while sales in the US and India are expected to begin in Q1 of 2011.

The EB-WX1GJ-B has a 10.8-inch screen flaunting a 1366x800 px resolution, LED-backlit multi-touch display and weighs 765 grams, which is three times more than the 5.5-inch model. This tablet is again powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, has 512 MB of RAM and runs Android 2.2 tailored for Sharp's specific requirements (later upgraded to 2.3).

Connectivity is achieved via Wi-Fi IEEE802.11b/g and Bluetooth 2.1 and USB 2.0 (mini-USB). The US model is said to feature HSDPA connectivity as well. 

The Galapagos also supports SDHC storage cards, up to 32 GB. It also has a 3.5 mm audio jack (but a mono speaker) and accelerometer. The track-ball is missing here.

The Galapagos tablet can download content from Sharp's cloud service, initially offering over 30,000 titles. After the 2.3 upgrade, Android Market is available.
