FMV Windows 8 Tablet from Fujitsu Revealed


Like every other PC maker out there, Fujitsu has begun unveiling the product lineup that will be up for sale starting on October 26, when Microsoft finally releases the Windows 8 operating system.

The specs of the Arrows Tab QH55 easily allow it to fit in with the other products in the FMV series, which is made up of convertible laptops, notebooks, all-in-one PCs and, of course, slates.

In fact, the specs of the Arrows Tab would make it qualify as a notebook, or even a netbook, if there were a physical keyboard to be had.

Since there isn't, except in the form of the obligatory dock anyway, the tablet gets the same prospective customers as other Windows 8 tablets unveiled so far.

Fujitsu chose Intel's Atom Z2760 dual-core central processing unit here, the one that only got released last month and runs at 1.5 GHz.

2 GB of RAM (random access memory) back the CPU up, while an SSD provides storage space of 64GB. The 10.1-inch display has a native resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels.

Essentially, this is a slate that Fujitsu expects to see businesspersons buy, even though the idea of ​​using keyboard-less electronics devices for work is one that people continue to be wary of.

Then again, with a weight of 574 grams (1.26 pounds) and Windows 8 32-bit, with Office Home and Business 2010 pre-installed, there weren't many other roles it could fill.

The rest of the specifications are what has become standard at this point: the display has multitouch input support and the tablet has two cameras (one on the front, 2MP, and one at the back, 8MP), a micro USB connector, Ethernet (10/100 LAN), Wi-Fi (802.11 b / g / n WLAN), GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, stereo audio and a gyrometer.

Sadly, PC Watch, where the announcement was made, did not say what price we should expect.
