Fujitsu delays TH40D tablet launch

Company issues apology on the unexpected delay of the recently announced TH40D convertible tablet

First introduced in May, the LifeBook TH40D was previously scheduled for a June release in Japan for about $990 USD. Now that the month is almost over, the convertible tablet is still not available, and it seems the device may not be reaching store shelves anytime soon.

According to the Japanese Fujitsu website, the company has delayed the release of the tablet with no information as to why. A revised release window was not given either, meaning it could be months before we next hear about the tablet, if at all.

The 10.1-inch TH40D sports a 1024x600 resolution screen with an Intel Oak Trail 1.5GHz Atom Z670 CPU, 1GB RAM, 120GB HDD and Bluetooth 3.0 with Wi-Fi. The Intel GMA 600 graphics would have provided FullHD 1080p playback under its 32bit Windows 7 OS. As for the chassis, the general makeup had an “Apple-like” aluminum feel but with a snappy slide-out qwerty keyboard.

The unexpected delay comes just a month after the tablet’s first announcement, so it is rather disappointing to hear of its now uncertain future.

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.
