Fujitsu has made good business building ultra-portables and notebooks for the Windows set. It only makes sense that they’ll follow the same trail with their entry into tablets and the just-announced Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 does just that.
Billed as a “business class slate PC,” the tablet is built with the high-security requirements of mobile enterprise computing in mind. Features like Advanced Theft Protection, deep-level hacking resistance and an optional embedded Trusted Platform Module (for keeping data secure even after the machine is stolen) were built from the ground up to make sure it meets the most stringent security requirements. It’s also got a digital fingerprint recognition system on board.
The Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 will feature a 10 inch touchscreen display (1,366 x 768 resolution) supporting four-finger multi-touch and stylus input, with an optional active digitizer and UI layer (for pen input). Hardware details include an Intel Z670 Oak Trail processor, 2GB of RAM, 64GB of SSD storage, front and rear-facing cameras, WiFi, Bluetooth, optional 3G radio and a removable battery module.
Fujitsu claims it has “full work day battery runtime,” which I currently find tough to believe (I mean, it’s a regular laptop without a keyboard). On second thought, those HP Elitebooks can last 32 hours, so you never know. It weighs a hefty 3.3 lbs., so don’t expect a fun time holding this with one hand like a Galaxy Tab.
Like many gadgets, the Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 is getting its launch at CeBit this week. It goes on sale in Europe, beginning March 1st, priced at €699 (around $950).
