The Sharp RW-16G is a ginormous 15.6-inch Windows tablet that packs quite the punch. Your eyes will definitely appreciate the 3,200 x 1,800 resolution on the massive display, but it’s going to need a lot of power to push all those pixels. Luckily, Intel has the answer with their Core i5-4200U dual-core processor which clocks in at 1.6GHz.
As for the rest of the specs, the Sharp RW-16G will come with 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD, and a slew of ports. We don’t know exactly how many, but we know you’ll get some USB 3.0’s to go along with an SD card slot and a Mini DisplayPort. Not too shabby…
We’re not sure how Sharp managed to get all that hardware into the RW-16G tablet, but they did and somehow they managed to keep it light. The Sharp RW-16Gonly weighs 2.7 pounds and its 0.5-inches thick. That said, it remains to be seen how battery life will pan out. The battery is said to run the tablet for up to nine hours depending on your usage, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that big luxurious display is going to eat into that battery life.
No release date or price has been set for the Sharp RW-16G, but you can expect to pick one up in March if you live in Japan. No word on when or if it will come to the states, if it doesn’t you can always go for Panasonic’s 20-incher that’s set to make its debut in February.
