CEATEC show in Japan, Sharp has taken the wraps off its new Sharp Mebius Pad Windows 8 tablet that features a 10.1 inch display offering a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels making it the highest resolution tablet running Microsoft’s latest Windows 8 OS. The hardware itself is suitably thin and light, with the rear of the device bearing a passing resemblance to recent Sony hardware possibly due to the understated camera lens in the corner. We'll let you know if Sharp has plans to offer the tablet to global business types.
This tablet is headed towards business use (which explains the optional stylus) and the extra resolution found on Sharp's first Windows 8 tablet means there's more space for your spreadsheets and documents. Sharp even provided a magnifying glass so we could get up close to those pixels.
Kicking off this week's CEATEC show in Japan, Sharp has played to its strengths with its new Windows 8 tablet, the Mebius Pad, factoring in a 2,560 x 1,600 resolution display. That puts it pretty far ahead of the current crowd of 1080p Windows 8 tablets, including Microsoft's incoming Surface 2. The 10.1-inch display is also satisfyingly bright - if we're honest, it's unusual to see such a capable screen powered by an Atom processor.
