Jkkmobile just reported on Fujitsu’s P1630 hitting the FCC. Initial specs look very familiar with only an upgrade in processor being the most obvious change. Here’s a breakdown of the refreshed device:
8.9 inch 1280 x 768 touch screen
Intel Core2 Duo SU9400 1.4Ghz
Intel GMA X4500
Up to 2GB RAM
Wifi, Bt and LAN
PCMCIA, SD, VGA out and 2 x USB
232mm x 167mm x 37mm, 1000g
As you can see, the P1630 still maintains a PCMCIA slot rather than an ExpressCard slot, which absolutely baffles me. Weight is still a scant 2.2lbs and the screen looks to be the same as the P1620. I was hoping for an active digitizer for the next P-Series, but it doesn’t look that way. I was hoping for more RAM capacity, but that’s not the case. Seeing as how this model is a VERY mild refresh, I really hope Fujitsu actually lowers the price of these ultra-portable tablets below the $1800 starting price point. What do you think? Has Fujitsu dropped the ball on this? What would you have wanted to see for their 8.9″ tablet?
