Fujitsu has launched a new tablet PC over the weekend that brings together a mix of good specs and bad design. To be honest, there is nothing revolutionary in the design and it is not very different from the other Lifebooks we have seen in the past.
But the specs should get people interested. The Fujitsu Lifebook TH700 comes with a 12.1″ WXGA LED backlight display, 4GB DDR3 SDRAM, 320GB hard drive storage running on Windows Home 7 Premium. The latest tablet PC from Fujitsu also brings with it a 2-Megapixel camera, Lithium Ion batteries offering five hours of battery life and a biometric finger sensor.
One area where I would have Fujitsu to have planned better is the price. The device launches at a starting price of $1,149 with additional accessories and features taking the price even higher. That doesn’t seem to be a bargain considering that it is not even near the price of other tablet PCs in the market – iPad included. Of course, the Fujitsu Lifebook will offer users much more advanced features and will not end up being a movie playing machine like the iPad. Still..
