Sharp's Galapagos tablets ready for December

All but cheap
Sharp's announced Galapagos tablets have finally been dated and both should be available on December 10th, at least in Japan. The 5.5-inch Mobile and 10.8-inch Home Galapagos tablets will have a rather steep price tag, which will probably be explained by Sharp's e-bookstore idea.
The big 10.8-inch Home model equipped with an 8GB microSDHC card will be priced at ¥54,800 (US $653) which still ends up cheaper than Apple's 32GB WiFi iPad. This one has a 1366 x 800 LCD screen and weighs 765 grams.
The smaller, 5.5-inch Home will stick with the 1024 x 600 resolution, it weighs 220 grams and has a ¥39,800 ($474) price tag. Both models have 802.11bg WiFi while the rest of the specs are still blurry.
All we need now are the EU and the USA dates and prices.
