Fujitsu Stylistic M532 Quad-Core tablet goes on sale in the US
The Japanese electronics company Fujitsu first introduced the Stylistic M532 slate PC back in January of this year and it seems the mobile device is now ready to hit US store shelves. Described by the manufacturer as a “mainstream Android tablet designed for professionals”, the M532 is compliant with the MIL-STD-810G military standard (shock, vibration, humidity) and features a rugged glass that protects the display.
Apparently, Fujitsu’s latest Stylistic tablet is driven by an NVIDIA Tegra 3 (T30S) system on a chip that incorporates four ARM Cortex-A9 cores operating at a frequency of 1.4GHz – 1.3GHz. In addition, it sports a 10.1-inch high brightness IPS (In-Plane Switching technology for improved viewing angles) touchscreen display of 1280-by-800 pixels maximum supported resolution.
The M532 is further equipped with 1GB of internal, low-voltage LPDDR2 RAM and 32GB of eMMC storage that is expandable by using the integrated micro SD card reader slot. Users are also provided with Wireless LAN 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0+EDR radios, one micro USB 2.0 port, an 8MP rear-facing shooter with AF and flash, a 2MP front-facing web camera for video conferencing and two built-in stereo speakers.
The product specs sheet indicates the slate PC measures 0.35-inch at its thickest point and weighs 1.23lbs with the 2-cell 3170mAh battery that reportedly lasts around 8.4 hours (video playback). Based on an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, the Stylistic M532 comes pre-loaded with Absolute Computrace data protection software (1 year license) and has a starting price of $549.
