Fujitsu T4220 Tablet PC announced from Fujitsu

Just yesterday I posted about the new Santa Rosa T4220 from an FCC find.  Today there is an official press release from Fujitsu.  There are a few more details from the release, and a nice review from Laptop Magazine as well.  I was kind of disappointed to read that the battery life for the unit was still something to be desired – Just over 2 hours playing a DVD…  especially with the new chipset.  

The LifeBook T4220 Tablet PC, a new edition of the highly popular ultra-light 4.3-pound thin and light convertible notebook, is designed for on-the-go mobile professionals who require the flexibility of a tablet for note-taking or navigating through forms-based applications, along with the traditional keyboard input of a notebook computer. The industry’s lightest convertible Tablet PC with a modular bay is packed with a full complement of security features and the Fujitsu Shock Sensor hard drive protection system. It offers the market’s first bi-directional display hinge, which turns the screen in both directions for added convenience.
