Sharp just announced that they were killing the 5.5" and 10.8" Galapagos ebook readers. Sharp launched these gadgets in Japan and had also planned to launch them in the US, although there is no sign that any were ever sold,
Sharp will stop accepting orders for the tablets at the end of the month. There's no mention of why they're being killed, but they are last year's model.
The ebookstore that Sharp launched to support the ereaders will stay open and it looks like Sharp plan to follow through on the 7" Galapagos A01SH model they announced last month, though no release date has been set. It will have a high resolutions screen (1024x600), a pair of cameras (5MP and 2MP), Wifi, and it will be running Android v3.2 Honeycomb a Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core CPU. Battery life will be in the region of 7 to 8 hours.
