A while back now Sharp announced its first Android tablets called Galapagos and there were a couple sizes. The tablets headed to Japan first in roughly 5-inch and 10-inch screen sizes. Those tablets looked nice enough and if you felt your geeky Android heart flutter, but were in the US you may have been bummed out that you couldn't get the tablets.
Sharp has now announced that the Galapagos tablets will be coming to other countries soon. The first location outside of Japan to get the Android devices will be America with the Galapagos offerings landing in early 2011. After the tablets hit the US, they will head to China and India as well as other spots around the globe.
Sharp is already courting publishers to provide content for its content platform that Galapagos users can use to download books and other material from. The only difference between the Galapagos models that will hit the US and the Japanese version is that the US versions are expected to have 3G connectivity whereas the Japanese were WiFi only.
