Launched at CEATEC Japan this week is the Sharp Mebius Pad, the first tablet we’ve seen using the Baytrail Z3770. It also offers a 300 PPI IGZO screen, a docking station, a digitizer layer and water resistance. Yes, it’s business-focused.
The Mebius Pad is a 10-inch tablet running Windows 8.1 or 8.1 Pro but the display is an impressive 2560×1600 and based on IGZO technology which has multiple benefits. There’s a docking station (HDMI + USB we believe) and LTE/3G options. Sharp didn’t mention a digitizer in their press release but there’s a image of it over at Engadget. As for weight, size, price and other specifications, Sharp haven’t revealed anything yet.
It’s due in Jan 2014 and is likely to stay in the Japanese market so if you’re interested, keep an eye on the Sharp Mebius Pad product page
Engadget have some live images here which show the pen and a case.
