Fujitsu Updates U810 and T2010 Tablets

I thought the Fujitsu booth at CES wasn’t going to have any surprises, but I was wrong. There were a few surprises, no new hardware since they just recently released the U810 mini-tablet and the T2010 Tablet PC, but there were some updates and concept models on the floor.

If you haven’t bought yourself a T2010 or U810, but you have been thinking about it, it is good you waited because now they have built-in AT&T BroadbandConnect High-Speed Uplink Packet Access.

That is right, Fujitsu can now claim the right to say they have the first tablets to offer an embedded cellular modem certified to access AT&T’s BroadbandConnect High-Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) network delivering the highest speed data wireless GSM WAN connection available in North America.

"Today, ultimate mobility means more than ‘easy to carry around’. It means a small, lightweight, highly reliable device that offers wireless connectivity at broadband speeds," said Paul Moore, senior director of mobile product marketing, Fujitsu Computer Systems. Fujitsu is really trying to make the consumers experience the best it possibly can be and I think they are headed on the right track. I enjoyed reviewing both the U810 and T2010 tablets.

The LifeBook U810 and the LifeBook T2010 notebooks with the HSUPA Wireless WAN option are expected to be available in March. No word yet on the price difference for these models, but the current U810 tablet sells for $999 and the T2010 tablet starts at $1,599.

Fabric PC

Fujitsu has their thinking caps on for the future too. When I was at their booth I had a chance to check out their concept fabric computer design. In truth, it’s a thin UMPC consisting of a flexible LCD and fabric chassis wrapped around an even thinner plastic core.

It was very innovative. No hands-on with this notebook though because it was locked away tightly in a glass case. Now this is something every mobile user can get on board with. It doubles as a notebook/notepad. It will be interesting to see what comes of it.
