Fujitsu could launch Honeycomb tablet for Q3 2011

Report claims Fujitsu Taiwan has confirmed a 7-inch, Android 3.1 tablet for a late 2011 launch
Allen Ngo,

The Japanese computer hardware manufacturer Fujitsu may release a Honeycomb-based tablet later this year.

While details are short, DigiTimes is reporting that the upcoming Fujitsu tablet will be a 7-inch model complete with Android 3.1, the latest version of Honeycomb thus far. Additionally, the report is pricing the tablet at around $347 to $694 (€243 to €486), which is a quite respectable price range compared to its similarly-sized competitor, the $499 HTC Flyer. The price level of the Fujitsu tablet will reportedly be kept low by outsourcing production of the tablet to original design manufacturers (ODMs) around Taiwan. This means that Fujitsu would not be constructing the tablets directly, but would instead transfer assembly responsibilities to another manufacturer.

The same DigiTimes report also revealed additional information about the recently announced LifeBook TH40/D convertible tablet. The 10.1-inch device may launch in Taiwan with a stylus and 3.5G radio, possibly as standard options, for a price around NT$30,000 ($1040).

Additional info on the Fujitsu 7-inch Honeycomb tablet will have to wait until a future date. Hopefully, the company will reveal more details this coming Computex 2011.

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.
