Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Sharp 7-inch Galapagos EB-W71LJ-H tablets gets through FCC
We have two new tablets at FCC for approval, the Android tablets from Samsung and Sharp have finally got through FCC, according to the FCC, the 8.9-inch Galaxy Tab will have AT&T 3G support, unlike its 10.1-inch sibling which hit the market last month in WiFi-only form. Meanwhile other one is Sharp’s 7-inch “EB-W71LJ-H” Galapagos slate.
There is no much details on Sharp’s Galapgos tablet though, it seems to have a rear camera along with what looks like it could be an LED flash, WiFi b/g/n connectivity and plenty of ports and controls at the edges. It was already assumed that 10.1-inch and 5.5-inch Galapagos models already launched in Japan would arrive in the US and elsewhere in early 2011.
On the other hand we are familiar with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and have been waiting for launch since it was unveiled. Galaxy Tab 8.9 would arrive at some point over the summer, priced at $469 and $569 for the 16GB and 32GB models respectively. The pricing seems to be for WiFi only version since there was no mention about 3G support when it was unveiled.
