[citation][nom]captaincharisma[/nom]yea good luck using a tablet problem free when its in a clear plastic bag!!!!!!!![/citation]
I work on fishing boats all the time. Before I go out I pop my HTC Evo into a sandwich baggie and it stays nice and safe while I am getting covered in water, grunge and slime. I can still use it to do anything I want from the bag. It's a cheap easy solution.
Living here, I can tell you it will be ridiculously overpriced, even on contract etc -- And really not needed, they have an "Ipad for Everyone" campaign out right now and I'm still not seeing Ipads everywhere. I just don't think most Japanese even see a use for a tablet.
