Sharp has developed 7.0" tablet device equipped with MEMS-IGZO display for the first time in industry, and will commercialize the product mainly targeting Japan's B2B market in the first half of 2015.
The MEMS-IGZO display on this tablet is a cutting-edge display jointly developed with Pixtronix, Inc. (hereafter "Pixtronix"), a subsidiary company of Qualcomm Incorporated. By integrating Pixtronix's MEMS display technology and Sharp's IGZO technology, it achieved further power efficiency and higher color reproducibility compared to standard LCD. In addition, the display mode can be switched to appropriate setting matching the usage and display contents, such as High Brightness Mode to display vivid picture under sunlight and/or Grayscale/Monochrome Mode for low power consumption.
Furthermore, the tablet satisfies basic performance including LTE communication function for high-speed internet connection on the go, voice communication and waterproof design.
