Fujitsu offers new pen-tablet PC

Available through resellers and system integrators, pricing for the Stylistic 3500 starts at $US3,899. The machine weights 1.46 kilograms, runs on an Intel. Celeron 500MHz processor and contains 15GB of memory that can be expanded to 256MB.

It also features a new reflective 10.4-inch TFT (thin film transistor) SVGA (Super Video Graphics Array) outdoor viewable colour display, that Fujitsu said combines the outdoor brightness found in passive reflective screens with high-contrast and fast speed of active matrix screens. The Stylistic 3500 also is available with an indoor-only display. Both screen options use technology that reduces glare and reflection.

A 56Kbps (bits per second) V.90 modem is standard, as is integrated 10/100 Base-TX Ethernet. The computer also has four optional docking alternatives: a mini-dock which allows full desktop functions with ports for USB (Universal Serial Bus), a PC card, keyboard, mouse, external monitor, floppy drive, serial device and Ethernet; a high-usage dock; a wall-mount cradle, and a portable port replicator.

The pen-tablet PC uses higher capacity Lithium ion battery technology so that the battery will last up to four hours. Using a lower voltage processor and a higher-capacity battery means a 30 percent boost in battery life over the previous version of the Stylistic, Fujitsu said in a news release.

The mobile PC uses Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows 2000 Professional or Windows NT 4.0 Workstation. IT supports Windows Pen Services and Communication Intelligence's PenX operating system extensions for handwriting recognition.

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.
