Fujitsu adds launches Centrino Tablet PC

Fujitsu PC has expanded its line-up of Tablet PC products with the launch of the LifeBook T3000 convertible device -— Fujitsu’s first Tablet PC to use Intel’s Centrino technology. Fujitsu has become one of the few vendors to offer both a convertible and a slate Tablet PC. The LifeBook T3000 convertible device looks like an ordinary notebook, but with a screen that swivels to cover the keyboard when used in Tablet PC mode. Fujitsu’s other Tablet PC, the Stylistic ST4000, is a slate device that can be placed in a docking station when a user wants to enter information with a keyboard. The new T3000 is based on Intel’s Centrino package of chips that, in this model, includes a 1.4GHz Pentium M processor, the Intel 855GM chipset, and an 802.11b Intel Pro/Wireless chip. It comes with a 12.1-inch display, a 40G-byte hard drive, 256M bytes of DDR SDRAM and two USB 2.0 ports for a base price of $1799.
