Sharp flaunts 10" Mebius Pad: waterproof Win 8 tablet with IGZO screen and record pixel density

Sharp flaunts 10
Sharp has a booth at the ongoing CEATEC expo in Japan, and something very interesting is just chilaxing over there. The world's first waterproof Windows 8 tablet is here, courtesy of the Japanese company, but that's not the only story about it.

The 10.1" slate is also the Win 8 tablet with the highest pixel density out there, as it sports Sharp's 2560x1600 IGZO panel, clocking in at close to 300ppi, as much as the Nexus 10 record-holder.

Called Mebius Pad, the Windows 8 slate is powered by the new generation Bay Trail Atom Z3370 quad-core processor - a silicon whose recent benchmarks were as high as a Core 2 Duo processor, unlike the previous feeble Atoms. Coupled with the frugal IGZO screen tech, Sharp's tablet is likely to meet or beat the battery life of ARM-based slates, though official numbers aren't given yet.

With that incredible pixel density the tablet is aimed more at professional usage, since a stylus is also available for it, as well as a keyboard folio. Release date for the Mobius Pad is in early 2014, and we hope to see it roll out globally, too, as it sounds like a winning combination for Win 8 fans.

Daniel this thing misleads as it should had "with High pixel Density" rather than Record pixel density which is already sported by Nexus brand.

Companies which are not known as well as the others should bring innovations in their devices. Not making them thin or using high density displays.
Hey Sharp! Learn from lenovo!

Sounds good to me. Core 2 duo level tablet that is hopefully much cheaper than an i5 has well tablet. I'll get one for work if they keep the price Nexus 10 level.

Nexus 10 is a subsidized product. That is why you don't seen those prices for any other android tablets.

This runs full windows 8 and comes with intel processors, more memory etc..
So it definitely costs more.
