Supported for some time for Google Android devices, the NFC technology. What to bring the hardware still needs to be a corresponding NFC chip. In the smartphone there are already models with the chip. Tablets were there previously in the phase of the prototype stuck. The Sharp RW-T107 will be the first commercial tablet with near-field communication.What brings the end user?
Sharp RW T107 as a digital wallet
Near-field communications allows devices to communicate with each other alien species safely, it can be simple data exchange or money transactions are carried out. Shops, there are fairly rare in having a device that can receive the payment from NFC devices. One thing is certain, with maintained development time and catch up by Apple, which still lag behind tremendously since this form of payment is only a matter of time before they replace, for example, the debit card or credit card. The advantage is the faster execution of the transaction, since so far represent more of a hindrance card payers at the cash register, even if they do not want to admit. The RW-T107 Tablet Sharp does not itself undertake to pay, instead offer their own app to be a dealer for cash settlement in the Android Market. Do I need to install an app then for each manufacturer? Probably at first, because here are still missing combinations for special deals mostly. This refers to Europe, but more because you act for example in Asia have been using NFC technology on customer-based manufacturer and has already developed Community Apps.
Limited Tablet with standard hardware
The Tablet will be delivered in a monthly circulation of more than 5000 pieces, so far only in Japan. These numbers are beginning to cause a real shortage of the sale because the Sharp RW T107 is visually appealing and also installed the latest hardware. Concrete specifications but Sharp has been able to conceal well before the world public. By a Tegra 2 dual-core chip at 1.2 GHz per core can go out, because this corresponds to the minimum configuration of the Sharp Galapagos A01SH and there are already buying. This is then also at least a 5 megapixel camera and a resolution of 1024 x 600 on the 7 inch screen. The Sharp Galapagos managed 7.5 hours battery life, so must the Sharp RW selfsame T107 battery life can be defined as a benchmark. HDMI, SD card reader, mini-USB, GPS, and the aforementioned NFC technology are not the only reasons for buying. The tablet is optically connected to an oversized Apple iPhone 4 to compare. It has a metal frame and the same elegant appearance, though not a two-sided glass. The Android buttons were positioned in landscape orientation, which is not standard, and for a pure multimedia tablet speaks.
