Not due until 2011.

Two new Sharp tablets have been spotted at the CEATEC 2010 show. Sharp has announced the Galapagos eReaders last month. Engadget has posted up photos of the new 5.5" and 10.8" Galapagos tablets from the show floor. These are actually billed more as color e-readers, but they seem to be functional enough to qualify as a "tablet".

The interface is somewhat slow, but the browsing experience was lauded as "full" and "crisp". Flash 10.1 will be supported. A US launch is set for 2011 (probably mid-year) so how impressive these end up being depends largely on cost and when exactly they hit. If Sharp comes in at $200-$300 right before the next iPad hits, they could nab users looking for a low-cost, huge-screen Android alternative.
