Fujitsu U810 – It’s a mini-notebook, not a UMPC

You know how the Helio commercials say not to call it a phone? Well Fujitsu would appriciate you not calling their U810 a UMPC, it's a “mini-notebook.”

The tiny notebook weighs just 1.5-pounds and has the same look and feel as one of Fujitsu's other tablet PCs, just in a much smaller package. It's packed with plenty of cool features like a biometric scanner, webcam, keyboard light, stylus and a touch-screen. You also get a card reader, 802.11a/b/g wireless, Bluetooth and Wireless WAN.

If you've been even just a little tempted by Fujitsu's indecently-compact LifeBook U810(the US version of the U1010) then you'll be pleased to know that there're a growing number of reviews for the tiny convertible.  Obviously when you're playing with something that measures close to 6-inches square the usual rules about "no fat fingers" apply, but if you've got the digits for it then seemingly it's a good travel companion.

Fujitsu’s super-compact LifeBook on sale as U810 in US

Fujitsu's smallest laptop, the convertible tablet formerly known as the U1010, has just gone on sale in the US as the LifeBook U810.  If you remember, this is the ultra-portable device that CNET Asia's Edvarcl Heng toted merrily on trains and was so enamoured with; it packs a low-voltage 800MHz Intel A110 CPU, 1GB of RAM and a 40GB hard-drive with a choice of Vista or XP Tablet Edition to take advantage of the passive 5.6-inch touchscreen.

Fujitsu U2010 UMPC clears FCC as U820

Fujitsu's U2010, the convertible UMPC based on Intel's Atom CPU, has made it to the FCC with a few testing photos and a new name.  As could have been predicted the UMPC will launch in the US as the U820, where it will have a 5.6-inch, 1,280 x 800 resolution touchscreen and six-row QWERTY keyboard.  Given that the FCC label claims the U820 "contains UMTS" it looks as though the devices 3G WWAN modem has made it over too.
