Taxan touts tablet for bathing beauties
Shower and tell?
Thanks to Japan's Kaga Hightech Co., better known for its Taxan brand, we can now enjoy our tablets in the bath. Step forward the Méopad Aqua, a 7in, 1-024 x 600 fondleslab with all the usual accoutrements and an unusual one: it's waterproof.
It's ready, then, for use in the kitchen, the company claimed, or by the bath.
The ¥35,800 (£275) gadget runs Android 2.3 - not even Honeycomb, alas - and has only 8GB of storage, though there's a Micro SD slot that'll take 32GB cards.
It'll do 1080p output through a mini HDMI slot, if you also have a telly in your wetroom. ®
Soapy wit tank
Are capacitive screens affected by being wet / soapy?
I think this will have a big acceptance within the male geek community:
All you p0rn collection in the shower!!
IP54 is not waterproof, it allows for limited ingress of water, not good for electronics!
Waterproof and shockproof?
Then it might become a useful device for taking with me on a motorbike, as a replacement for the stack of maps and papers I have to have with me at events.
(having no moving parts doesn't necessarily mean it's capable of withstanding travel in a motorcycle tank bag)
Is it heat proof?
