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. ®
