Sharp has just announced a new tablet that is destined for the business and professional world, the RW-16G1. Sharp's new slate features a 15.6-inch display, with a 3200x1800 resolution.


The new slate will feature a dual-core Intel Core i5-4200U processor - 1.6GHz/2.6GHz, 3MB of L2 cache, 15W TDP, and Intel HD 4400 graphics. We have 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 128GB SSD, and that gorgeous 15.6-inch display which is based off an IGZO panel. We have Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC for wireless technologies, a 2-megapixel webcam, SD card reader, mini DisplayPort, HDMI, and three USB 3.0 ports.


Sharp's RW-16G1 also features a stylus, accelerometer, gyroscope, geomagnetic sensor, and more. As for its operating system, we have Windows 8.1 Pro, which makes this new, massive, high-res slate like a much better, more expensive Surface Pro 2.

As for the physical side of things, it is 12.5mm thick, 1.25kg, and can work for up to 9 hours from its built-in battery. Sharp will only be making 3000 of these tablets per month, so it will be a very limited edition slate when it arrives in Japan in March.
