Fujitsu U820 UMPC gets Windows 7 upgrade [Video]

The Windows 7 RC testing continues, and after we've seen how reasonably it runs on an Atom N270 netbook its time to turn to a slightly more niche gadget.  Fujitsu's U820 UMPC (aka the Loox U/B50N, aka the U2010) may be small enough to lose under a hamster, but it gets a new lease of life with Windows 7: Steve from UMPC Portal has been testing it out, and he's finding longer battery life, faster boot-up and improved touchscreen functionality versus Vista.

Fujitsu U820 UMPC video unboxing

From big boxes do small gadgets come, and Fujitsu's U820 (aka U2010, aka U/B50N) UMPC certainly doesn't disappoint on either of those counts.  The U820's 5.6-inch WXGA 1280 x 800 touchscreen might not be ideal for everyone's eyes, but the tech packed into such a small device surely has to earn Fujitsu some kudos.  jkkmobile has one of the first video unboxings we've seen so far.

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.

Just because the chips are in short supply, doesn't mean the manufacturers aren't insisting on using them.  Fujitsu's U810 UMPC is the latest recipient of Intel's Atom processor, together with an altered casing, keyboard and name.  Now under the moniker U2010, the keyboard has six rows compared to the U810's five, and there's built-in 3.5G WWAN and GPS.

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.

We caught a glimpse of the little bugger in Linda Epstein's WinHEC coverage, but now thanks to Akihabara there're some lovely new photos of Fujitsu's dinky UMPC to ogle over.  As a design it's certainly busier than rivals, who have instead gone the "sleek slate" route, but the tiny-convertible form-factor is bound to win some appreciation from traditional notebook users looking to downsize.
