Fujitsu's latest external-graphics notebook has been revealed, the LIFEBOOK AH530 GFX, offloading its ATI Mobility Radeon HD550v 1GB video card to make for a more portable main unit. Based on May's original AH530, complete with optional Core i3, i5 or i7 processors, Blu ray or DVD drives, up to 8GB of RAM and up to 500GB HDD, the AH530 GFX gives desktop users an alternative to the standard notebook's Intel HD GPU.
Fujitsu's latest consumer tablet PC has emerged quietly, showing up this weekend on the company's estore. The Fujitsu LifeBook TH700 kicks off at $1,099 and has a 12.1-inch dual-mode display - that reacts both to multitouch finger gestures and an active stylus for more precise input - together with an Intel Core i3-350M 2.26GHz processor, 4GB of RAM and a DVD burner. There's also a 320GB HDD, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 and Intel HD graphics with an HDMI output.
Fujitsu have outed two new mainstream notebooks, the LifeBook A530 and the LifeBook AH530. Each has a 15.6-inch 16:9 widescreen display - available with glossy or matte finishes - together with a choice of Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processors, up to 8GB of DDR3 memory, 500GB of HDD storage and optional Gobi 2000 WWAN.
Fujitsu makes components that other companies use to build their gadgets and gizmos as well as making a range of electronic devices themselves. The company has unveiled a new touch screen series today called the FID-53X that promises to be both lighter and stronger than other panels on the market.
Fujitsu's LifeBook T730 has made a quiet debut, after having been spotted clearing the FCC back in April. Packing a 12.1-inch WXGA convertible touchscreen, choice of CPUs including an Intel Core i5-520M, i5-540M and i7-620M, up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM and Intel HD graphics, the T730 comes as standard with an active digitizer (for use with a special stylus) but can be specified with a dual-mode panel that reacts to both stylus and multitouch finger gestures.
Fujitsu Laboratories has announced a new color e-paper display that has what Fujitsu claims to be the world's highest color image quality. Fujitsu was able to develop the color e-paper display by redesigning the panel structure and image rewrite methods used in previous versions of color e-paper from the company.
After Fujitsu began their color e-newspaper trials in Japan a year ago we've been waiting for the technology to show up in a consumer device; it now looks like that could be fast approaching. Fujitsu Japan have been demonstrating a new prototype ereader using a color e-ink panel and with an ultra-slim chassis, that they apparently expect to reach the market sometime this year.
Hardware details for the device are unknown, and Fujitsu themselves don't seem to be saying much about its capabilities. For their e-newspaper trial the company were looking at wireless delivery of content, and the "Link" indicator on the prototype's front panel suggests it might have its own form of wireless too.
