Sharp To Bring Galapagos Tablets To U.S. In 2011

Engadget is reporting that Sharp’s new Galapagos tablets will make their way to the United States next year.

After launching earlier this year in Japan, the U.S. versions will reportedly be updated to include a new 3G capability and the proprietary XMDF platform format will be switched to the ePUB format.

Engadget has more: “ Content partnerships are said to be brewing as we type, because, quite naturally, Sharp intends to have its own e-bookstore for Americans as well. After the Yanks, the company’s said to be looking into bringing its 5.5- and 10.8-inch tablets to China, India, and Brazil.”

With RIM’s new PlayBook tablets and the rumored iPad 2, 2011 is already shaping up to be an interesting year for tablets.
