We talked a little bit about the interesting looking Fujitsu TH40/D last month. This tablet reminds me a bit of the Asus Eee Pad Slider tablet. The TH40/D has the same slider style that the Eee Pad Slider sports with a screen that pops up to reveal a full keyboard underneath the screen. The TH40/D has turned up at Computex 2011 and the gang over at Pocket-lint got hands on with the tablet.
The version Pocket-lint played with is an actual production version of the tablet that will be offered in Japan. The tablet has a 10.1-inch screen that is touch capable. The keyboard on the version that you see here apparently has some extra keys around the space bar for Japanese users and the version for other areas will not have those making it more useful. I hope that means a larger space bar, that thing looks tiny.
The table weighs 1.1kg and has a HDMI port, dual USB 2.0 ports, an SD card slot, and a headphone jack. The TH40/D also has a hardware volume control. The processor inside is the Atom Z670 running at 1.5GHz. The tablet has 1GB of RAM, which isn’t very good considering the OS is Windows 7. The build quality is first rate according to Pocket-lint. For basic computing users wanting the most portability they can get, the TH40/D is worth your consideration.
