Fujitsu LifeBook TH700 convertible dual-mode tablet PC quietly outed

Jun 29, 2010

Fujitsu's latest consumer tablet PC has emerged quietly, showing up this weekend on the company's estore.  The Fujitsu LifeBook TH700 kicks off at $1,099 and has a 12.1-inch dual-mode display - that reacts both to multitouch finger gestures and an active stylus for more precise input - together with an Intel Core i3-350M 2.26GHz processor, 4GB of RAM and a DVD burner.  There's also a 320GB HDD, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 and Intel HD graphics with an HDMI output.

The convertible notebook also packs a fingerprint reader, webcam, dual microphone array and a 6-cell 5,200mAh battery which Fujitsu reckon will be good for up to 5hrs runtime.  More expensive than an iPad, certainly, but offering the functionality of a full desktop OS - Windows 7 Home Premium - and the benefits of a handwriting-friendly active digitizer.  The Fujitsu LifeBook TH700 should begin shipping from July 5th 2010.
