The Japan-based multinational IT company, Fujitsu, has reportedly launched the Stylistic Q702 notebook-slash-tablet and the redesigned LifeBook T902 laptop with rotating screen. Both portable devices are aimed at business professionals on-the-go and were introduced as part of the 2012 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference that took place in Toronto, Ontario. According to the manufacturer, the Q702 and T902 will become available in Q3 of this year with prices starting at $1,099 and $1,899, respectively.
First in line is the Stylistic Q702 slate PC, which supposedly offers enhanced productivity, durability, security and portability. It comes outfitted with an AH-IPS (Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching technology) anti-glare, LED-backlit, ultra-durable widescreen display that measures 11.6 inches in diagonal. Furthermore, the panel has a native resolution of 1366-by-768 pixels and supports both touch and pen input (dual digitizer).
Reportedly, the tablet is equipped with a choice of third-gen Ivy Bridge central processing units (Core i3/i5), 64GB or 128GB mSATA solid-state drive, 4GB of internal DDR3 RAM and the integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics controller.
Connectivity-wise, the Q702 sports USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI output, SD/SDHC card reader slot, Wireless LAN and optional WWAN/3G LTE radios. Moreover, it comes stacked with front-facing and rear-facing cameras complemented by two built-in microphones for video conferencing.
Fujitsu’s latest slate PC weighs 1.88lbs and can be purchased with a Keyboard docking station that adds a secondary 4-cell battery (up to 9 hours of usage with the two batteries); USB, RJ-45 and VGA ports. The Stylistic Q702 apparently offers “iron-clad” security features including Intel’s vPro and Anti-Theft platforms, Computrace support, integrated TPM (Trusted Platform Module), a fingerprint reader and more.
Next up is the LifeBook T902 convertible laptop - the redesigned successor to the LifeBook T901 model that Notebookcheck reviewed last year. It can be configured with a choice of Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5/Core i7 vPro processors, up to 16GB of on-board 1600MHz memory and an anti-microbial, spill resistant keyboard.
The notebook sports a frameless, anti-glare, 13.3-inch wide multi-touchscreen (10 points, dual digitizer) panel of 1600-by-900 pixels native resolution and weighs 4.1lbs with the built-in 6-cell battery. In addition, Fujitsu claims the T902 comes with a built-in modular bay that can be used to hold an HDD, optical drive or a secondary battery (over 11 hours of runtime with two batteries installed).
Both portable devices feature accelerometer, gyro-meter, magnetometer and ambient light sensors, and will run on a Windows 7 Professional operating system at launch (users can reportedly upgrade the Q702 and T902 to Windows 8 when the new OS is available).
