I like to see concept products from designers that hint at the things we will see in the future. I think the cool Anderson concept you see here is something that we will likely see in the future. It was designed by Ma Yiwei and Tao Ying specifically to fill the gap between a notebook and a tablet computer. The concept would be about the size of a small tablet with a keyboard module.
There are undoubtedly some very strange gadgets in China. I have seen more than a few that offer smells or allow the user to spray scents on a special part of the device. Each time I see something that offers smells for the user, I wonder if it smells particularly bad in some areas of the world. The new phone is called the F-022 and Folli Follie is a popular brand in China for watches, jewelry and other accessories for women.
Fujitsu has announced that it has added some cool new features to its line of new Lifebook notebook computers. The new features are implemented across the entire Lifebook line and the cool features will appeal to those that use their notebooks a lot. Fujitsu says that it is focusing on usability and making sure that its machines are as user friendly as possible to make working on the machines as easy as possible.
We talked a little bit about the interesting looking Fujitsu TH40/D last month. This tablet reminds me a bit of the Asus Eee Pad Slider tablet. The TH40/D has the same slider style that the Eee Pad Slider sports with a screen that pops up to reveal a full keyboard underneath the screen. The TH40/D has turned up at Computex 2011 and the gang over at Pocket-lint got hands on with the tablet.
Microsoft's Windows Phone "Mango" announcement this morning has been prematurely blabbed by the company's Romanian arm, with a press release confirming that Acer, Fujitsu and ZTE have all come on board as new OEM partners. They've committed to getting new devices on the market before the end of 2011, while the developer SDK of Mango is expected within the next 24 hours. As for the update itself, it'll roll out to all Windows Phone handsets at the beginning of the fall (despite how Google Translate has mangled the Romanian press release after the cut).
Fujitsu has pulled the wraps off a pair of new workstation notebooks that are both in the Celsius line. The two machines allow professional users to run high-end computing applications from a notebook rather than being tired to a desktop computer all the time. The machines are up to running CAD/CAM and graphics rendering programs and deliver power that was previously only available on desktops according to Fujitsu.
Earlier this month Fujitsu debuted the interesting slider tablet called the TH40/D. That tablet will run Windows 7 and be more of a netbook that a tablet like we see with Android from other providers. That isn’t the only tablet that Fujitsu has up its sleeve though. The company will also be offering another tablet come Q3 2011 and that tablet will be packing one of the latest versions of Android available when it lands.
Now if you love the idea of the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, a sort of convertible tablet and notebook combo, but you can't make the switch from a traditional Windows platform to the Android platform, then tablet PCs may be a good option right now. You might take a gander at Fujitsu's LifeBook T901 that just went on sale in the U.S.
In the business world, the mobile pro knows that a notebook and a projector often go hand in hand when it comes to giving a presentation to a group of people on any subject. I have seen more than one business type schlepping a notebook and a giant projector case through an airport in my day, and I am sure none of them like having to do that. This is where Fujitsu comes in with that cool notebook with the optical drive bay pico projector that I wrote about in April.
