Revel in Your Work and Life with the Fujitsu LifeBook U1010 – World’s smallest* tablet-convertible UMPC in the Palm of Your Hands

  • 05 July, 2007 11:56

<p>Superiority knows no boundaries with the Fujitsu LifeBook U1010, a sleek ultra mobile PC packed with features meant for work and leisure. Celebrating Fujitsu’s debut into the UMPC market, this remarkable mobile entertainment device is the perfect personal companion for professionals on the go. This mobile computing breakthrough doubles up not only as a portable computer but also as a digital media player.</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia, July 04, 2007 – Fujitsu PC Australia today proudly launches its first ever ultra mobile PC series, the futuristically-inspired LifeBook U1010. Created explicitly for the tech lover, mobile executives and field professionals, this small wonder ends your search for the ultimate mobile entertainment device. Bundled with optimum capabilities in its svelte frame, this compact gadget is set to impress!</p>
<p>Staying true to Fujitsu’s thin and lightweight motto, the LifeBook U1010 weighs just over half a kilogram, thanks to its high density mounting technology and lightweight, 0.3mm glass LCD screen. But don’t be fooled by its petite frame. This mini powerhouse can handle multiple operational possibilities like watching movies and listening to music, viewing and editing documents, video-conferencing as well as surfing the Internet – all that you can do on your hand-held, tablet and notebook PC! What’s more, it comes with a newly designed, ultra slim 0.2mm aluminum plated QWERTY keyboard, which does not add to the device’s weight or thickness. The U1010, world’s smallest in its class , is among the very few UMPCs which has such an astounding feature.</p>
<p>An even greater delight is the device’s convertible, swivel form factor – a first in the UMPC market – which gives you the flexibility of using the LifeBook U1010 like a hand-held, tablet or notebook PC. To top things off, it has a Palm Resistance touch screen that allows your fingers to do the walking, in the absence of a stylus. Just touch and go. Its unique Glide Point Pointing device also makes interaction with your personal companion that much easier.</p>
<p>And as with all Fujitsu PCs, the LifeBook U1010 is packed with a suite of security features that guarantees the confidentiality of your information. Through the Trusted Platform Module support and 2-level BIOS lock, your documents are safe from prying eyes. In addition, the UMPC is equipped with a fingerprint sensor that lets you encrypt sensitive files with a swipe of your finger. No password is more secure than that of your fingerprint!</p>
<p>Busy executives will definitely require a mobile device that has long battery life. The LifeBook U1010 fulfills this need as it runs on the Intel’s latest Ultra Mobile Platform 2007, which has the lowest power consumption for optimised battery life. How is that possible? Well, this stellar performer is installed with the latest UMPC CPU whose Thermal Design Power is up to 80 percent lower than Intel’s current Ultra Low Voltage CPU. In general, U1010’s platform takes up 25 percent less power than the 2006 UMPC platform, giving it battery life that extends beyond most devices. This is definitely sweet music to the ears of entertainment junkies who like spending time on the move watching movies, boogying to the latest tunes or playing games. With the U1010, work and play becomes a seamless transition.</p>
<p>“Fujitsu is constantly redefining the boundaries of technology and with the birth of the LifeBook U1010, we have once again placed ourselves in a distinct niche. By marrying exquisite form factor with powerful functions, our very first tablet-convertible UMPC will create waves in the market. We have not only managed to create a fun product to cater to the leisure side of our consumers, we’ve also added a serious element to it – a mobile workstation for active professionals who are constantly on the move. What more can you ask for? Once you’ve experienced the U1010, you wouldn’t want to let it go!” says Mr David Niu, Product Manager, Fujitsu PC Australia.</p>
<p>To cap things off, Fujitsu remains firmly committed to the promotion of a cleaner environment, implementing the European Union’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances directive (RoHS) across our entire range of products, allowing Fujitsu to stay keenly focused on our customers’ health and well-being, embracing a healthier environment for all.</p>
