Fujitsu Tokyo announced the addition of the U Series of ultra-mobile PCs (UMPCs) to its FMV-LIFEBOOK line of notebook PCs. Intended for business users, the U Series is the world's smallest tablet-convertible UMPC, weighing only 580g and with a thickness of only 26.5mm. The new series is available as of today. Combining the usability advantages of a UMPC with robust security features, the U Series has wide-ranging appeal as a powerful mobile machine.
"The Fujitsu UMPC combines Fujitsu's systems expertise with Intel's low power processor and chipset," said Anand Chandrasekher, Senior VP Intel Corp and GM 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 ultra light and small form factors."
The FMV-U8240 UMPC is available with the latest operating system from Microsoft, Windows Vista™ Business, enabling users to employ the same PC environment when they are outside the office as when they are in the office. Its ultra-compact size makes it easy to carry around at all times, and with a maximum battery life of up to 8 hours, users can catch up on e-mail, process documents, and do research whenever they need to, without being tied to a desk. The 5.6" widescreen display and keyboard with a 14-mm key pitch and 1.3mm keystroke ensure user-friendliness. Moreover, since it 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. Security measures against theft and information leaks are a serious concern with any mobile PC. As part of the FMV family, the U Series comes with extensive security features, including a security chip and fingerprint scanner. In addition, every aspect of these machines, from design to manufacturing, is consistent with Fujitsu's renowned "Made in Japan" quality.
