We’ve shown you the Fujitsu Waterproof Tab slate taking a dive here, but now we’re back with a complete specs list and more details. The first thing I noticed was the original virtual keyboard, that separates the letter keys into two segments and places a gesture area in the middle, with handwriting recognition. The Fujitsu booth also included an aquarium, where their waterproof devices were dunked in.
Fujitsu Arrows Waterproof Tab can stay under water for about 30 minutes and it can’t be type on when wet, unlike the Xperia Active phone for example. The screen of the slate is supposedly packed with a quick response panel, so it’ll provide great feedback to user gestures and input. Here’s the specs list for the waterproof tablet:
- Dimensions: 11.3mm thickness, 597 grams weight
- Connectivity: LTE, GSM, UMTS, Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi
- Camera: 5.1MP back, 1.3MP front
- CPU: TI OMAP4430, dual core, 1GHz
- Memory: 1 GB RAM, 16 GB ROM, microSDHC card slot
- Battery: 6560 mAh
The main writing section between the keyboard letter segments recognizes Japanese characters among others. The battery of this device offers 10 hours of video playback and about 83 hours of audio playback, plus 2900 hours of standby time. The device runs Honeycomb and sadly there’s no launch date for Europe, although we hope to see the slate on this continent and only in Japan or the US. Rumors say that the product will come to the States in August, with a price tag of $300 – $400.
