Sunnyvale, Calif. — Fujitsu has introduced a new mini notebook, as well as a desktop replacement product and a tablet PC.
Fujitsu’s new mini notebook is theLifeBook U820, weighing in at 1.32 pounds. The manufacturer said the device offers “full-featured Windows PC functionality” as well as integrated Garmin Mobile PC navigation software.
The Intel Atom processor-powered device can offer integrated turn-by-turn, voice-prompted navigation, said to eliminate the need for an on-the-go user to carry separate devices for computing and navigation.
The U820 has a 5.6-inch Crystal View wide XGA touchscreen. It offers up to 7.5 hours of battery life with a four-cell battery or 3.5 hours with the two-cell battery option.
The machine can come with a hard disk drive with up to 120GB capacity or a solid-state drive with up to 64GB capacity. It also offers a 1.3-megapixel Web cam. Either Windows Vista Business or Home Premium comes pre-installed. Pricing starts at $1,049 for the base configuration.
The company has also introduced the LifeBook N7010, a desktop replacement notebook featuring a primary 16-inch wide-aspect Crystal View display and a second 4-inch Touch Zone touchscreen display to keep more information visible without cluttering the primary desktop. Pricing starts at $1,499.
Finally, Fujitsu also unveiled its new LifeBook P1630 tablet PC, which runs on an Intel Centrino 2 Ultra Low Voltage Processor and comes with integrated wireless broadband connectivity and a Web cam. It is available starting at $2,179.
