The Pantech Element tablet may be water-resistant, but Fujitsu has developed an Android tablet that can do more than just survive a splash or two of water. The Fujitsu Arrows Tab is a thin and light 10 inch tablet that’s designed with a rugged case that really can keep water from damaging the device — even if its submerged in a bowl of water.
Fujsitu has been showing off the Arrows Tab for a few months, but I got my first chance to see it in person this week, and I was impressed with how much the tablet didn’t look like a rugged device.
In fact, it looks a lot like any other 10 inch Android tablet I’ve tested. One of the only differences is that the tablet’s ports were covered by little plastic doors — but that’s not all that unusual. Plenty of other companies put bits of plastic or rubber over tablet ports for aesthetic reasons rather than for waterproofing.
The Arrows Tab has a 1 GHz TI OMAP4430 dual core processor, a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, and runs Google Android 3.2 Honeycomb. The tablet is about half an inch thick and weighs 1.3 pounds.
