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

Sharp shows 10" Mebius Pad: first waterproof Win 8 tablet sports record pixel density
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.
