Fujitsu ultramobile PC

Fujitsu Ltd has joined the ultramobile PC (UMPC) market with the addition of the U Series of UMPCs to its FMV-LIFEBOOK line of notebook PCs designed for business users.

Touted to be the smallest tablet-convertible UMPC, the FMV-U8240 also adopted the recently launched "Intel Ultra Mobile Platform 2007" in an ultraslim profile and a weight of only 580g and thickness of 26.5mm.

"The Fujitsu UMPC combines Fujitsu's systems expertise with Intel's low power chipset" target=_blank>processor and chipset," said Anand Chandrasekher, senior VP of Intel Corp. and general manager of its Ultra Mobility Group. "The emerging UMPC category delivers the functionality of the PC and full Internet to users who are constantly on the go in ultralight and small form factors."

The FMV-U8240 UMPC is available with Windows VistaBusiness, enabling users to employ the same PC environment when they are outside the office as when they are in the office. Since the device can be used as a handheld tablet PC, users can edit simple documents or perform other tasks on the go, thereby improving productivity when outside the office.

With its combination of go-anywhere portability and ease-of-use, the new U Series is expected to elicit strong demand as a popular second computer for users who work away from a desk, such as salespeople, who always need to carry a PC in the field for customer presentations, and repair technicians.
