Fujitsu LifeBook T730 tablet outed by FCC?

It's been a month since Fujitsu outed their LifeBook T900 convertible tablet, and it looks like there's another, smaller model on the way.  Fresh to the FCC is the Fujitsu LifeBook T730, currently lacking anything bar a sample label and a diagram of its underside.  That means we have to make a few guesstimates about what the potential specs might be.

Since the T900 has a 13.3-inch display, the T730 seems likely to be a smaller unit; 11.6-inches looks a likely size.  That would put the new Fujitsu in direct competition with convertible touchscreen netbooks like the Acer Aspire Timeline 1820PT.  If that's the case, then we can't see Fujitsu fitting an internal optical drive.

Also unclear is just what sort of processor the LifeBook T730 might get.  The T900 has a choice of Core i5 or Core i7 chips, but it seems perhaps more probable that the T730 would use a low-power Calpella CPU or even a CULV chip.  No word on when we could expect to see this new notebook, nor what sort of price it might command.
