Fujitsu held a press conference yesterday, meant to showcase the latest in portable computers and tablets for the Japanese market. They also showed their roadmap for the 2012-2013 time frame, with some very interesting projects in the ultrabook and tablet field, especially with Windows 8 on board. Let’s see what the fuss is all about.
The notebook Fujitsu Lifebook and the Fujitsu Stylistic tablet were present on the list, with launches in Germany and Japan already prepared. The focus here was on technologies like encryption, ergonomics and great usability. Among the newest technologies there’s the Anti Theft one, that allows the user to block or trace his own notebook, after it has been stolen. Next up there’s WiFi, that allows HD streaming from a notebook to a TV set through a wireless connection.
Well, now let’s get to the launches. In May this year we’ll see two new ultrabooks with Intel Ivy Bridge solutions, while in June we’ll see a mainstream Android tablet, with multimedia features. Maybe that’s the model we know as Fujitsu Stylistic M350. In the same month we’ll witness the launch of a Slimbook notebook, while in September Fujitsu will launch its first slate with a docking station, one that will look very much like the Lenovo IdeaPad S2. In Q4 2012 we’ll see the first Fujitsu tablet with Windows 8 and during this year there will also be an all in one PC for the entire family released.
