Fujitsu Siemens to launch mini-laptop at IFA

Fujitsu Siemens plans to launch a mini laptop computer at the upcoming IFA trade show in Berlin, it said this week.

Few other details are known about the computer but it can be seen in a YouTube video and appears to be about the same size as competing mini-laptops.

The machine is likely to be detailed at a Fujitsu Siemens news conference on Aug. 28.

The entire mini-laptop sector barely existed a year ago but was brought to life when Asustek Computer launched its Eee PC in June 2007 and promised the machine would cost around US$200. Several models of the computer have now been launched and numerous other PC makers have also launched mini-laptops to capitalize on the low-cost segment of the market.

IFA is one of the world's largest consumer electronics shows and takes place in Berlin from Aug. 29 until Sept. 3.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
