Fujitsu Launches a Windows 7 Tablet for €699

By - Source: Mobile Whack | B 12 comments

There’s no shortage of Android tablets available, so when it comes to slates running Windows, Redmond is a little outnumbered. Today Fujitsu threw is throwing another hat in the ring with the launch of its 10-inch Stylistic Q550.

Currently on show at CeBIT in Hanover, the the Q550 is aimed at the enterprise market. Right now, it’s unclear as to whether or not Fujitsu will even allow regular customers to purchase (the HP Slate is enterprise-only but anyone can buy it), but those who are can expect to pay €699 and up for the device. 

Specswise you’re looking at a 10.1-inch WXGA IPS display (both finger and stylus input supported), Intel’s Atom processor, 2GB of RAM, up to 64GB of SSD storage and the option for a Gobi HSPA radio capable of 14.4Mbps download and 5.76Mbps upload. Of course, this is a Windows tablet, so you’ll also have the choice for either Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional.

The Stylistic Q550 is going on sale globally March 1, but pricing for other markets, along with full specs, won’t be announced until then.

    Hmmm. As soon as someone reviews the machine (Other than Engadget as they really do have a stick up their rear with regards to Windows) and offers impartial information, I might consider this as my (upgraded with SSD, clean install) Dell Inspiron Duo has now gone to my boss. He liked it so much after seeing me use the thing...

    P.s. Please let me post using Opera :(

    Please, read my paragraph again..

    "I might consider this as 'MY' (upgraded with SSD, clean install) Dell Inspiron Duo"

    I was referencing a machine that I upgraded, NOT the Q550. Come on, I know it's early in the UK so maybe make the rest of the day a Happy Day.

    P.s. Does ANYONE have a link for ANY company in the UK selling the Q550? The Fujitsu page at 09:17 UK time has the Q550 in the menu but goes to a different machine. Must be updating.

    AggGghh tablet lust..

    Fujitsu makes excellent tablets, professionally oriented. I would like to have one of these.

    WOW, talk about being late with an article... This thing was announced on Feb 24th. You mention IN your article that was posted today that "today" the tablet is being announced, and that pricing won't be available until March 1st... but today IS March 1st. Tom's keeps slipping further and further towards irrelevancy!

    You would think M$ would have created a tablet-oriented UI for Win7. If they had, they might have a better showing against the likes of Honeycomb and the Ipad.

    Of course, there's always Omnimo 3 for Rainmeter..
