The two devices are notable for being the first tablets to ship with Intel’s Oak Trail platform, according to PCWorld. While multiple manufacturers have already shown off tablets running on the Intel chipset, Fujitsu and Motion Computing have apparently beat them to launch time.
Each of the 10.1-inch tablets will sport a 1.5GHz Atom Z670 CPU with Windows 7 Professional and 1080p support through HDMI. The Stylistic Q550 will use an IPS display with 2GB RAM and up to 64GB SSD, while the CL900 will ship with 1GB to 2GB RAM and a 30GB SSD. Of course, the CL900 tablet will be the more resilient of the two, as the tablet integrates Gorilla Glass covering with a rugged chassis.
Both tablets incorporate a number of security features in order to appeal to businesses. The Q550, for example, includes a fingerprint reader, whereas the CL900 includes a tracking software in case the device is lost.
The Fujitsu Q550 begins at $729 (€499) and is currently shipping worldwide. The Motion Computing CL900 starts at $899 (€616) and will have a more limited release to only the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, France and Germany.
