Japanese manufacturer Fujitsu has announced in a press release that it will soon start selling 12 new portable devices including AIOs, laptops and tablets. The products are part of the company’s FMV Series; they will all run on a Windows 8 operating system and will first hit the store shelves in the firm’s home country.
The LifeBook AH family gets two additional models, dubbed AH77/K and AH56/K. Both notebooks sport 15.6-inch touchscreen displays with a special surface called Sara-Sara Coating Display that apparently makes fingerprints and smudges rather difficult to notice. In addition to the Full HD In-Plane Switching (IPS) panels, the two laptops reportedly pack up to an Ivy Bridge Intel Core i7-3632QM CPU (6MB L3 cache, 8 threads, 35W max TDP) that incorporates four cores operating at 2.2 – 3.2GHZ and the Intel HD 4000 graphics card.
Other specs of the AH Series presumably include two built-in Pioneer stereo speakers, up to 8GB of internal RAM, integrated Blu-ray drives and up to 6.3 hours of battery life (AH77/K). The AH56/K and AH77/K will ship with a pre-installed Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 suite and will go on sale by the end of this month (February) for a yet undisclosed price.
Fujitsu claims the Arrows Tab Wi-Fi QH55/J is the world's slimmest water-resistant Windows 8 tablet. The 574g (≈20 oz.) mobile device is 9.9mm thick (≈0.4-inch) and sports a Dual-Core Clover Trail Intel Atom Z2760 system on a chip clocked at 1.8GHz. Moreover, the slate PC comes with a 10.1-inch IPS LCD screen of 1366-by-768 pixels native resolution, 2GB of RAM and a 64GB Solid-State Drive.
The QH55/J model will be launched on March 2 and will offer pre-loaded Office Home and Business 2010 suite and a 29Whr battery that supposedly lasts for up to 10.5 hours.
Last but not least, the Tokyo-headquartered tech company announced the Arrows Tab Wi-Fi FAR70B tablet based on an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. The lightweight, dust- and waterproof FAR70B is reportedly aimed at either business or home users and has a 10.1-inch Full HD (1920-by-1200 pixels) multi-touch display complemented by a 1.7GHz Quad-Core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor.
The ICS slate PC houses 2 gigs of memory, 32 gigs of flash storage, an 8.1MP rear-facing shooter and a 1.3MP front-facing web camera. Users are further provided with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 adapters, a microSD card reader slot and a built-in TV tuner (will work in Japan only).
The Arrows Tab Wi-Fi FAR70B weighs 589g (≈ 21 oz.) and will become available for order on February 15.
