Fujitsu have announced their latest ultraportable, the 13.3-inch AMILO Notebook Sa 3650, and its external video companion, the AMILO GraphicBooster. Offering up to 470-percent increased graphics performance, the GraphicBooster is an external ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3870 graphics card with 512MB memory, DVI-I and HDMI outputs, and two USB 2.0 connections.
Forget the cheesy weather proof feature or having a pelican case for your cell phone. The Futjisu F-01A goes beyond Slashproof, offers feature-rich handset with IPx5 and IPx7 waterproof protection. The F-01A is no ordinary cell phone with few O-rings; it’s a fully loaded "docomo PRIME series" mobile phones with GSM, GPS, Bluetooth, fingerprint sensor, and has a 5.2MP CMOS sensor for still image capture which also sports a 3.5-inch TFT LCD with ultra wide 854x480 resolution screen.
Fujitsu announced their latest SAS enterprise hard disk drives today and have upped the capacity and performance in the process. Both are 2.5-inch drives, but the MBD2 RC sports 10,000 RPM and the MBE2 RC is 15,000 RPM. They also feature 6Gbps.
When compared to the previous models of these drives, you will note that the capacity has been doubled. This is due to the company's use of perpendicular magnetic recording technology or PMR. This helps to lower power consumption as well.
These drives are green, too, with halogen-free construction and compliance with RoHS. They are also 28% more energy efficient. They've also gotten a 60% speed boost. You can get the MBD2 RC in 147GB or 300GB and the MBE2 RC is available in 73.5GB or 147GB.
Fujitsu have announced a mobile medical companion, the touchscreen ESPRIMO MA Tablet PC. Fanless, and capable of being entirely sterilized, the ESPRIMO MA has a 10.4-inch display, integrated UMTS 3G and WiFi n, together with barcode and RFID readers. It weighs 1.3kg and has a dual smart card reader for security.
Fujitsu have updated their Scaleo Home Server range with two new models, adding capacity to the media streaming and NAS backup products. The Home Server 2205 is preinstalled with two 1TB drives, while the Home Server 2105 is preinstalled with two 500GB drives; however there's room for a total of four drives in each. Fujitsu have used Western Digital Caviar Green SATA HDDs, for reduced power consumption.
Benchmarks schmenchmarks - what we want to see is Windows 7 running on more and more devices! Today it's the turn of a couple of touchscreen ultraportables, one old and one new, to take the Microsoft pre-beta OS for a spin. The venerable Gigabyte U60 - rocking a VIA 1.2GHz processor and 1GB of RAM - takes first punt, closely followed by the Fujitsu U2010 (aka U820).
Fujitsu's LifeBook T2020 convertible Tablet PC was announced last month, complete with some of the features the company has become known for in the touchscreen niche. The indoor/outdoor display is likely the biggest draw, being quite a hit with mobile professionals, but the new SSD options and WWAN should provide some upgrade temptation too. TabletPCReview have been giving the T2020 the once-over.
Fujitsu's LifeBook N7010 with its curious "Touch Zone" secondary display could be viewed as a gimmick or as a realistic productivity enhancement: a 4-inch touchscreen embedded above the notebook's keyboard, it offers users a secondary display for IM chats, toolbars or media. Laptop Mag spent some time with a pre-production N7010, and while they're not 100-percent convinced, the Fujitsu certainly seems to make some compelling arguments.
Fujitsu have updated their ultraportable convertible Tablet PC range with the new LifeBook P1630, an 8.9-inch touchscreen-equipped notebook with magnesium-alloy casing. An update to the previous P1620, the P1630 adopts the Centrino 2 platform with a Core 2 Duo SU9300 ULV processor, WiFi a/b/g/n and a high-capacity battery good for up to 6.15hrs use.
The U820 isn't the only fresh Fujitsu today with a touchscreen: the LifeBook N7010 is a regular 16-inch 16:9 notebook but it also has a 4-inch touchscreen embedded above the keyboard. This sub-display - which Fujitsu are calling the "Touch Zone" - can be treated as an extension of the main screen, with apps dragged 'down' to it, or be used as a toolbox for app controls or media playback buttons. Under the hood there's a Core 2 Duo P8400 processor running at 2.26GHz, ATI Radeon HD 3470 graphics with 256MB GDDR3, and a Blu-ray drive.
The Fujitsu U820 UMPC (aka the U2010) has finally made it to an official spot on the company website, having cleared the FCC almost three months ago. The 5.6-inch micro-convertible also now has a price: $999 gets you the entry level version, with an Intel Atom Z530 processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, a 60GB 4,200rpm hard-drive and integrated GPS.
