Fujitsu TH40D reportedly shipping July 22

The recently delayed Fujitsu tablet PC may soon be launching in Japan next week

According to NotebookItalia, the elusive Fujitsu TH40D may finally ship this month starting July 22nd.

First revealed in May, the convertible tablet was supposed to launch by the end of June but was recently delayed for unknown reasons with no given timeframe. While we were uncertain of its return, it is nice to hear that Fujitsu may still be committed to the device for a release this month, meaning the delay would not be as long as we anticipated. Unfortunately, NotebookItalia sources did not indicate when an international release is expected, but the tablet should be launching first in Japan for about 80,000 Yen (715 Euro, 1011 USD).

The 10.1-inch TH40D will be equipped with a 1024x600 resolution touchscreen, a 1.5GHz Intel Atom Z670 CPU, 1GB RAM, 120GB HDD, 2x USB 2.0, HDMI, webcam and run Windows 7 Home Premium. Of course, the take-home feature of the tablet is its slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Fujitsu claims that its “hybrid motion” design “can swap between touch operations and keyboard input depending on the scenario in which it is used.” Overall, the tablet comes in a thickness of 1.74cm (0.685 inches) with a total weight of 1.1kg (2.4 pounds)

Hopefully a launch outside of the tablet’s native country will soon follow.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
