Mini PCs are great for business and consumers who are looking to save some space on their desktop and save energy with more power efficient systems. Typically these little mini PCs use Intel Atom processors and may not offer enough power for some users.
Multitouch chipset firm N-trig have announced a partnership with Fujitsu to produce their next breed of DuoSense touchscreen controllers. The next-gen DuoSense system will not only be smaller than the existing version, but require less power and recognize "10 or more simultaneous touch points at very high refresh rates."
We've been singularly cellularly obsessed here at SlashGear over the past seven days, and it'll come as no surprise that the run-up to the iPhone 3G S has occupied much of our attention. The new Apple smartphone may not look much different to its predecessor, but if our hands-on first impressions are anything to go by, Cupertino have done their best to make the user-experience as polished as the casing. Still, it's not just shiny Apple hardware that's caught our eye this week; Novatel Wireless' GSM MiFi 2352 piqued our interest when we talked to the company themselves on Monday, and then proceeded to impress us considerably in our full review.
When Fujitsu-Siemens announced they'd be making a netbook, many ears pricked up. The company has a long history of ultraportable devices, and still makes one of the more appealing UMPCs; many hoped some of that innovation would follow through to the Amilo Mini Ui 3520. One landed on the SlashGear test bench recently, and we thought it only fair to put it through its paces.
Forgive me if my Pre and iPhone 3GS lusts wane a little, I've just seen NTT DoCoMo's latest super-phone, the Fujitsu F-09A. Packing a 3.4-inch sliding and rotating touchscreen, 8.1-megapixel camera with autofocus, smile-detection and high-speed FOMA and 3G GSM connectivity.
Fujitsu have announced their M2010 netbook, a 10.1-inch Intel Atom N270-based ultraportable with up to 2GB of RAM, standard Bluetooth and a claimed 50-second start-up into Windows XP Home. The company is aiming the M2010 at the educational market, with what's said to be a more durable build to cope with kids.
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 are the first to outfit a model from their ultraportable range with the Intel Atom Z550 running at 2GHz. The Fujitsu LOOX U - variously known as the LifeBook U820 and U2010 in different markets - can now be specified with the faster Atom chip; the existing 1.33GHz Z520 and 1.60GHz Z530 options remain.
If you are looking for a way to protect your personal information so that you know for sure it will be safe, you might want to consider the latest device to come from Fujitsu Labs. It's called a Secure USB Memory Device and this gadget makes good and sure your data is secure.
