Computer and electronics maker Fujitsu has announced its Stylistic 5111 and 51112 Tablet PCs, bringing Intel’s Core Duo processors into its 3.5-pound tablets, and offering 10.4- and 12.1-inch screens for pen-based computing.
“The Stylistic ST5100 Tablet PCs, with their durable, slim form factor, renowned Fujitsu reliability, and the latest mobile technology, continue their industry status as best-in-class,” said Paul Moore, Fujitsu Computer Systems’ Senior Director of Mobile Product Marketing, in a statement. “Whether it’s in a hospital or out in the field, a Stylistic ST5100 epitomizes the ultimate in on-your-feet computing, with perfect balance and intuitive ease-of-use features.”
The 5100s run Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 (but they’re Windows Vista-capable), are less than one inch thick, offer a choice of 10.4-ich or 12.1-inch indoor/outdoor displays (running at 1,024 by 768 pixels), shock-mounted SATA hard drives up to 100 GB, support for up to 4 GB of RAM, Intel integrated graphics, and a Core Duo U2500 processor running at 1.2 GHz. The systems also sport a built-in microphone, plenty of ports (two USB 2.0, infrared, external monitor, gigabit Ethernet, modem, and FireWire), plus 802.11 a/b/g Wi-Fi and optional Bluetooth 2.0 wireless networking. Add a smart card close and a PCMCIA slot, and most of your needs should be handles. The standard lithium ion battery offers 6 hours of life; a high-capacity 9-cell battery can run for up to nine hours. If converting the tablet to desktop use is appealing, an optional dock offers three USB 2.0 ports, FireWire, support for an external monitor, Ethernet, audio line out, plus an optical drive bay. The systems come with a Trusted Platform Module, and the 12.1-inch model comes with an integrated fingerprint reader.
Prices for the 10.4-inch Stylistic ST5111 begin at $2,429, with prices for the ST5112 starting at $2,199; both are available immediately through Fujitsu.
