Fujitsu Introduces STYLISTIC ST5010 Tablet PC with Intel Centrino

1/27/2004 - Fujitsu Siemens Computers, the leading European Computing Company with over twelve years experience in the development, manufacturing and marketing of tablet PCs and solutions, presented its latest tablet PC at a Mobility Day in Palma de Mallorca: the STYLISTIC ST5010 series. The new model has a 12.1-inch display and weighs only 1.54 kg. For network and internet connectivity, the STYLISTIC ST5010 is equipped with Intel® CentrinoTM mobile technology with integrated wireless LAN, supporting 54 Mbit/s, an integrated modem and wired LAN data exchange via the new Gigabit LAN. Especially attractive for mobile use is a larger battery, which allows users to be underway using the tablet up to eight hours: an entire work day. The STYLISTIC ST5010 tablet PC, is available for prices starting at €2,700*.

Just like its predecessors the new slate models use a special stylus pen, which allows the users to take notes and have their handwriting transferred into typewritten text.

Its numerous accessories, including external drives and a docking unit, ensure flexible and ergonomic operation. A smartcard reader and security buttons with special access codes increase security by obstructing unauthorized access to sensitive data. And the stable magnesium housing protects the system and data against physical damage in day-to-day use.

The STYLISTIC ST5010 series from Fujitsu Siemens Computers is especially tailored to customers in vertical markets, such as health care, insurance, sales, inventory management and market research. These vertical markets require a light device with a long battery life, basically a clipboard replacement which can be used wherever people walk or stand. Typical example is hospitals, where STYLISTICs are used by doctors and nurses to edit patient data onsite at the patient’s bed. After the visit the device can be integrated in a docking station and doctors can use it as normal PC with keyboard and peripherals. At the Son Llàtzer Hospital in Palma de Mallorca doctors and nurses use STYLISTIC Tablet PCs to have direct access to patent information via Wireless LAN anywhere in the hospital.

“The tablet market has shown resilience in vertical market segments,” says Chris Jones, Senior Analyst at Canalys. “What is key in this market is the ability not only to provide hardware, but the solutions necessary to meet the customer’s specific needs. Fujitsu Siemens Computers has twelve years experience in product usability development and solution building and has as proof point shown good growth figures in that area e.g. in Q4 2003. The company is now further reinforcing their credibility as a leading supplier of mobile products and mobility solutions.”

“With the new STYLISTIC series and the recently launched LIFEBOOK T models, we are offering our customers an exclusive range of state-of-the-art tablet PCs,” explained Peter Eßer, Executive Vice President of Volume Products and Supply Operations at Fujitsu Siemens Computers. “Due to our extensive experience in that area we are in a permanent feedback process with our customers and therefore know best where to improve in developing new products. The comprehensive range of available accessories and a growing number of offerings from ISVs (Independent Software Vendors) opens up numerous application scenarios for our customers.”
