News facts

  • Expanded line-up of touch-screen/pen-enabled devices featuring Windows(R) 8, including the innovative LIFEBOOK(R) T902 convertible notebook, LIFEBOOK T732 convertible notebook, STYLISTIC(R) Q572 tablet PC and STYLISTIC Q702 hybrid tablet PC
  • With one of the industry's widest choices of form factors, Fujitsu helps assure business customers that they will find the right device to enjoy Windows 8
  • Enterprises can choose between Windows 8 or Windows 7 licenses

Fujitsu today introduces one of the widest selections of devices featuring Windows 8, including its first Windows 8-based hybrid tablet, the Fujitsu STYLISTIC Q702.

From tablets to convertibles to a revolutionary hybrid, the Fujitsu portfolio is designed to help accelerate dramatic changes in the way people are working with computers -- incorporating touch, always-on connectivity and a consistent user experience across PCs, notebooks and tablets. Under the moniker Reshaping the Workplace, Fujitsu is embracing the industry megatrend toward "bring your own device," and the increasing number of people who are working with multiple devices throughout the day.

To ensure that users can stay in touch with modern business requirements, Fujitsu offers not only a wide choice of connected devices, but also innovative design for greater usability and the convenience of touch-screen. Clever features make new Fujitsu models designed for Windows 8 an attractive choice, and are built in to the design to make the user experience more rewarding, more productive and more enjoyable. And while Fujitsu is enabling users to benefit from a more intuitive and natural way of working, it is also helping assure CIOs that they can count on enterprise computing essentials including manageability, enhanced security and mobility.

Available soon for pre-order, Fujitsu flagship convertible notebook and tablet models featuring Windows 8 are thinner, lighter and faster than outgoing models with Windows 7 preinstalled. They make the most of the operating system's capabilities, especially multi-touch and pen input -- combining the convenience of touch with the accuracy of pen.

Business users who want the style and convenience of a touch-screen tablet without sacrificing the essentials of security-enhanced features and usability need look no further than the Fujitsu line-up featuring Windows 8. Fujitsu offers its innovative STYLISTIC Q702 hybrid tablet featuring Windows 8. This can conveniently be used as a tablet while traveling, or converted into a traditional notebook by using an optional attachable keyboard complete with an extra battery. The new Fujitsu STYLISTIC Q572 is a fully fledged 10.1-inch tablet PC system that combines enhanced performance with extensive security-enhanced features including an incorporated fingerprint sensor, SmartCard reader and Full Disk Encryption (FDE) and tops it off with day-long working, supported by a swappable battery.

The Fujitsu range of devices featuring Windows 8 also extends to one of the lightest and slimmest 13.3-inch convertible notebooks, the LIFEBOOK T902, and the 12.5-inch LIFEBOOK T732, which include business features like Intel vPro(TM) technology and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for improved mobile security. Users can specify an additional port replicator for easy drop-and-go in corporate environments or use the modular bay for a second battery or second hard disk drive.

With Windows 8, users can enjoy benefits such as support for Adobe Flash and HTML5 with Internet Explorer 10 as well as full support for multiple user accounts even on tablets -- plus access to USB ports and full compatibility with mice, keyboards, and other USB peripherals. All Fujitsu tablets and notebook models featuring Windows 8 offer connectivity through support for Wi-Fi and UMTS/4G mobile data and add the convenience of Bluetooth to connect wireless peripherals.

Easy operating system migration through choice of easy upgrade or downgrade
For enterprises that are still evaluating company-wide Windows 8 rollout but want to give early adopters the chance to enjoy the productivity boost of touch-screen technology, Fujitsu is able to offer the best of both worlds. All new Fujitsu models ship with a choice of Windows 7 or Windows 8 licenses. Customers with a Windows 7 Professional license are also entitled to downgrade to Windows XP.

The full line-up of new Fujitsu devices featuring Windows 8 will be available for pre-order soon. For information on Fujitsu tablet PCs and notebooks, visit: http://www.shopfujitsu.com/store/.
