Mobile Computer Users See the Light with Fujitsu Indoor/Outdoor Tablet

5/22/2003 - Fujitsu PC Corporation gave mobile computer users the power to work and play virtually anywhere with the first indoor/outdoor Tablet PC to feature a Reflective front light display. An option for the latest Fujitsu Stylistic® ST Series Tablet PC, this unique technology offers extraordinarily clear text and graphics under practically any light condition-even outside under direct sunlight.

"The latest generation of the Stylistic ST Series Tablet PC delivers on our commitment to anytime, anywhere computing," said Sara Nelson, vice president of marketing, Fujitsu PC Corporation. "The Fujitsu Stylistic ST Series Tablet PC has proven to be one of the most flexible PCs in existence. The indoor/outdoor display adds to this flexibility, transforming not only how but where we compute."

Fujitsu has remained dedicated to the tablet form factor for more than a decade. In that time, the company has amassed a wealth of knowledge in pen-based computing. The latest Stylistic ST Series Tablet PC demonstrates this unique understanding, but takes it one step further. The company went out in the field, listened to customer comments, and worked closely with the Fujitsu LCD division to develop the innovative Reflective front light display technology, allowing clear viewing both indoors and outside.

Available only on the Fujitsu Stylistic ST Series Tablet PC, the Reflective front light display enhances the 10.4-inch screen so applications can be clearly seen in a wide variety of light environments. Under direct sunlight, the display gets even brighter rather than becoming washed out. In low light conditions, the display's front light can be adjusted to cut through the darkness and enhance viewability. This adaptive feature gives users the freedom to carry their Fujitsu Tablet PC wherever work or play takes them. Together with a high capacity battery and Wi-Fi® capabilities, users can be more productive throughout their day, whether they are on campus or in the field. The optional nine-cell high capacity battery provides up to an impressive seven hours1 of battery life.

Weighing a mere 3.2 pounds and measuring an ultra-slim 0.88 inches thin, the Stylistic ST Series Tablet PC is small enough to be comfortably carried, yet powerful enough to be used as one's primary PC. The latest generation features an Ultra Low Voltage Intel® Pentium® III Processor 933MHz - M and can be equipped with up to 768MB of system memory and a massive 60GB hard drive. Users can complement their Tablet PC with a keyboard in the Fujitsu attaché case or place it on their desk in the optional tablet dock.

The tablet dock has all the ports users need to connect desktop peripherals, as well as a modular bay to accommodate an optical device such as a DVD/CD-RW combination drive. A quick release mechanism, combined with the unit's tight integration with the operating system, allows for instant removal of the unit from its dock, allowing users to take their Tablet PC with them at a moment's notice.

In addition to pen or keyboard entry, the Fujitsu Tablet PC was designed with several application buttons unique to Tablet PCs, allowing the user to intuitively launch key applications and navigate through documents and application and file menus with the touch of a button.
