Fujitsu Prepping Rugged Honeycomb Tablet

Fujitsu, known for making lower-end computers and other devices, is apparently ready to throw its hat into the Android tablet game, with the Fujitsu “Arrows Tab,” a rugged Honeycomb tablet. They’ve announced the 10.1-inch device, and it’s set to launch next month on NTT DoCoMo, a Japanese carrier. ¬†The tablet could have HSPA, UMTS, and LTE connectivity, as well as GSM and GPRS capabilities, for roaming and such. The Arrows Tab will also be packing a TI IMAP 4430 1GHz dual-core processor, so it won’t be slow by any means.

The Arrows Tab will reportedly bring 16GB of storage (we suspect there will be both 16GB and 32GB versions, as with most Honeycomb tablets these days), along with two CMOS cameras, and the entire device will be waterproof. It’s not clear what depths the Arrows Tab will be able to withstand, but we’ll do some digging. Also worth noting is the themed Honeycomb that we see in the photo above, leading us to believe that Fujitsu will be having a bit of fun with a new UI.

No word on exactly when the tablet will hit Japan, or how much it’ll cost. As far as we know, it’s a Japan exclusive for now, but Fujitsu may decide to expand to other countries later. More on this as it develops. So, do we have any readers in Japan that are planning to pick one of these rugged beasts up in September? Sound off in the comments below!
