Fujitsu launches new tablet PC
Dubai, September 14, 2010
Fujitsu today introduced a new smaller fully featured tablet PC, the Lifebook T580, with a 10.1-inch screen size.
Leveraging Fujitsu’s 20 years of convertible PC experience, the Lifebook T580 squeezes full-size notebook features and technology into a smaller, lighter and lower-priced package, said a statement.
The device is the flexible alternative mobile working on a slate – removing the frustration of slow responses by packing much more processor power, and delivering convenient practicalities for all-day working, such as a keyboard, two USB slots, SD card and SmartCard readers, a webcam, and outputs for both VGA monitors and high-definition HDMI displays.
Weighing just 1.4kg, the new baby Lifebook T580 converts from a notebook to a touch screen tablet PC with a simple twist of the unique bi-directional rotatable screen. This provides a full touch screen experience including support for four-finger multiple touch, and enables fingertip control for up to 14 different gestures, as well as touch-based double-tapping, scrolling, magnifying and rotating.
A Dual Digitizer delivers the highest accuracy and pressure sensitivity when working with a stylus, and the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system recognises handwriting in 26 languages, plus voice commands, the statement said.
Even in direct sunlight, the screen display is bright and clear thanks to high-definition LED backlighting with an Ambient Light Sensor that automatically adjusts display brightness, while a smear-proof coating means no distractions from fingerprints.
Chandan Mehta, poduct mnager at Fujitsu Technology Solutions said: “The new Lifebook T580 is designed to be used primarily on the move – which is why there is no compromise on connectivity or usability. The new smaller size combines the portability of a slate with the added practicality of a tablet PC, giving LIFEBOOK users the best of both worlds.”
The product is available for pre-order in the Middle East region from October 1, 2010, with first shipments planned for late November. – TradeArabia News Service
