Fujitsu Transforms Notebook into Tablet PC with Convertible LifeBook

9/10/2003 - Following through on its commitment to "anytime, anywhere" computing, Fujitsu PC Corporation introduced yet another addition to its Tablet PC product line, the LifeBook® T3000 Tablet PC. The company has artfully blended its award-winning LifeBook notebook and Stylistic® Tablet PC product lines to produce one of its most versatile PCs ever. With a flip of its screen, the LifeBook T3000 Tablet PC transforms from a traditional notebook into a highly mobile Tablet PC.

Fujitsu has more than a decade of experience under its belt and remains the technology leader in pen computing. The convertible LifeBook T3000 Tablet PC will compliment its already extensive line of Stylistic tablets and touch screen LifeBook notebooks.

"Having offered pen-enabled PCs for more than 10 years, Fujitsu brings a depth of experience to addressing its customers' needs," said Alan Promisel, analyst for International Data Corporation. "Touch screen notebooks and Tablet PCs have become viable tools for companies seeking to improve the productivity of mobile workers. With the addition of the convertible LifeBook T3000 Tablet PC, Fujitsu has enhanced its suite of pen-enabled portables, providing its customers with a greater number of computing options."

The Fujitsu LifeBook T3000 Tablet PC comes well equipped to tackle anything mobile professionals, students and frequent travelers are likely to do. Featuring Intel® CentrinoTM mobile technology, the system is powered by an Intel® Pentium® M processor operating at 1.4 GHz and comes with the Intel® 855GM chipset and Intel® PRO/Wireless Network Connection 802.11b. The combination of technologies delivers excellent performance and battery life, allowing users to stay mobile for extended periods of time.

"We understand that small things, such as a bridge battery and port replicator, can make a world of difference for mobile users," said Paul Moore, director of product marketing for Fujitsu PC Corporation.

The LifeBook T3000 Tablet PC's bridge battery can last up to five minutes while users replace a spent main battery for a fresh one. This gives users the ability to stay mobile for the entire workday. When they choose to return to their desks, they are likely to fall in love with the LifeBook T3000 Tablet PC's optional port replicator. It has all the ports users need to connect desktop peripherals. A quick release mechanism, combined with the unit's tight integration with the operating system, allows for instant removal, enabling users to take their LifeBook T3000 Tablet PC with them at a moment's notice.
