Hands on with Fujitsu’s waterproofed Windows 8 Arrows Tablet

One of the more interesting Windows 8 tablets we’ve see here at Mobile World Congress is Fujitsu’s Arrow Tab. Featuring a solid 10.1” IPS “Super Clear Panel” display, microUSB, SD card expansion, 2GB of RAM and 64GB SSD. It even sports “the world’s thinnest Windows 8 tablet” title.

But in addition to all of that and being super light (540 grams) the 1.8GHz Atom powered device is waterproof too. Sure, you can’t take it SCUBA diving but drop in the bathtub or knock it in the pool and you should be good to go (it’s actually good to about 1.5 meters for 30 minutes, according to Fujitsu).

The Arrows comes in two flavors QH55/J with Wi-Fi and Q582/G with LTE and this Arrow is aimed at Japan.  No word on price just yet.
