FujitsuDualScreenPhone

Fujitsu is at CEATEC 2010 this week showing off some fancy concept designs and prototypes at their booth. Among them are a couple of Windows 7 slates and this dual-screen, dual-configuration phone device, which offers a new twist on the flip phone.   

Fujitsu launches “Slate-beating” 10″ Lifebook T580 Tablet PC

FujitsuLifebookT580Thumb

Fujitsu is rolling out a new convertible Lifebook Tablet PC. The T580 is smaller than their recent releases with a 10.1″ screen, but it’s still able to rotate in either direction to flip to slate mode. And in a different kind of twist, Fujitsu is marketing this thing as a “Slate-beater”.   

Fujitsu Lifebook TH700 sneaks into their online store

FujitsuTH700Thumb

Regular reader Acerbic, in following up my review of the Fujitsu Lifebook T900, ran across a new product listing tucked into the Fujitsu site over the weekend: the Lifebook TH700.  It appears to be a consumer-oriented, entry-level Tablet PC with most of the Fujitsu amenities intact but a much lower price tag of $1149 or […]

GBM InkShow: Fujitsu Lifebook T900 review

FujitsuLifebookT900-1-thumb

No demos here: just a brief overview and my honest opinion of the Fujitsu Lifebook T900 Tablet PC, perhaps the most delightful Tablet PC I’ve ever used. (Oops, probably should have put a spoiler alert there.)   

Review of the Fujitsu Lifebook T900 – “My Next Tablet PC”

FujitsuT900Thumb2

As I sit here at my pen-only Tablet PC, reviewing my notes from a better time, I can’t help but wonder how much brighter my life would be if I had worked harder, made some smarter decisions, and arrived at this point with enough throwaround money to buy a Fujitsu Lifebook T900, the computer I […]

GBM InkShow: Pen + Touch on the Fujitsu Lifebook T900

FujitsuT900Thumb3

During my recent evaluation of the Fujitsu Lifebook T900 Tablet PC, I decided to record a little demonstration of the complementary pen and multi-touch input on its dual digitizer screen. Pretty basic stuff, but while we’ve seen plenty of pen or touch demos, I don’t think enough attention has been paid to using them together. […]

Inking on the Fujitsu Lifebook T900

As I teased earlier, I’m currently evaluating a Fujitsu Lifebook T900 Tablet PC on loan from Fujitsu. I’ll be shooting some video of the pen + multi-touch system in action as well as of the general hardware. But since I have some quiet time now, I thought I’d spill some thoughts about the inking.

We got an email from Fujitsu today with the subject line: “Introducing the New Fujitsu LifeBook T730 Tablet PC.” And just like that, with no added fanfare, their new 12″ convertible with optional multi-touch was unleashed upon the world – It’s on sale now at the Fujitsu site.   

Fujitsu To Announce Improved Color e-Paper Displays

20100507-01a

Fujitsu Laboratories is set to announce improved color e-Paper displays at the Fujitsu Forum exhibition in Tokyo May 13-14. Supposedly these displays are quite a bit brighter (up to 1/3rd brighter with a 7:1 contrast ratio). More importantly Fujitsu is saying that new driver technology will allow the screens to redraw in 0.7 seconds. The […]

Fujitsu ScanSnap s1300 Reviewed

ScanSnap-S1300-open-500x413

I’m trying to go completely paperless this year, but don’t quite have all the necessary tools. My current HP Photosmart all-in-one can only scan a single page at a time, making it pretty labor-intensive to get a week’s worth of mail scanned and uploaded. After reading Dan Cohen’s review of the Fujitsu ScanSnap s1300 over […]

Fujitsu Going Full Steam in Defense of iPad Trademark

Business > Image >

Remember that little trademark dispute over the name iPad we mentioned a week or so ago? You know the one where Fujitsu claims it has the trademark on iPad? Apple wants it. Fujitsu says it has it. Claims are made that Fujtsu never followed through on the process. Start the meter on legal fees. Fujitsu […]

Apple Fighting Fujitsu for iPad Trademark

uspto_logo

What’s in a name? Legal fees. Apparently Apple is not just trying to corner the market on Tablets, publishing, music, movies, TV, sharing, and weaken Google’s search dominance, but it is also looking to corner the trademark market on anything that could possibly used as a moniker for its mythic Tablet. Apple has been granted […]

Fujitsu may have scaled its CES2010 presence back quite a bit in comparison to years past, and many were looking to see just what they were going to be offering in the coming months. Turns out they aren’t really that quiet, but like many manufacturers what we’re seeing are updates of existing lines in many […]
