Sharp's first Windows 8 tablet has 10.1-inch, 2,560 x 1,600 IGZO display and water resistance

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, although we admit, we'd have loved to have seen another incredible 4K tablet. Alongside the company's 10.1-inch IGZO panel (know for their low-power credentials), the Mebius Pad runs on a slightly less-exciting Intel quad-core Atom processor (the Z3370), which we've had mixed feelings on when it comes to the Windows tablets its powered in the past. The basic Windows 8.1 model will arrive with Office for free, although you'll have to pay extra if you want it for the Pro edition. Also, following Japanese trends for practically any device, the slab is both water and dust-proof (it's in the midst of being certified for IPX5, IPX7, IP5X), while you'll be able to buy it with LTE radios on board, at least for Nippon, as the device is unlikely to leave Japanese shores once it launches in early 2014. We'll be closely scrutinizing that display in a few minutes and will have more to say then.

If this isn't too expensive, and it's got good battery life, I'll have a hard decision deciding between this and a Surface.

Vs Surface 2 (RT)? This is much better.

 

Vs Surface Pro 2 that is much better other than screen resolution.

I'm waiting for a serious atom tablet. I'll be replacing my Iconia a500.

 

This doesn't look like it though :(
