Fujitsu LifeBook T730 tablet arrives: dual-mode digitizer & optional Core i7

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.

Storage is up to 500GB HDD or 256GB SSD, and there are a few wireless options including Intel WiFi a/g/n or Atheros b/g/n, together with Bluetooth 2.1.  Ports include VGA, HDMI, three USB 2.0, FireWire, ethernet, audio in/out and ExpressCard 54, along with a Memory Stick/SD card reader.

Battery life is tipped at up to 5hrs 25 minutes with the standard 5,200mAh pack or up to 9hrs 20 mins when it's paired with the expansion battery.  Pricing kicks off at $1,869 for the Core i5-520M with 2GB of RAM and the basic active digitizer; the Core i7-620M is a $150 option while the dual-digitizer is another $100.
