They mention the P1510 as replacing a Tablet PC, Notebook, and PDA, saying the beautiful ultra-portable LifeBook P1510 may just take the cake as the ultimate Tablet PC that isn’t a Tablet PC. Two weaknesses are mentioned, performance and battery life, but Fujitsu would probably argue that those are due more to the size than anything else – it would be hard to increase battery capacity or change CPUs without going up in size and weight.
CoolTechZone.com is reporting that Intel’s new CPU, code-named Yonah, is set to be launched in less than a month, on January 6th. They believe it will be launched in India, but have this to say about a launch in the US: Knowing that the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2006) will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada around the same timeframe, it makes sense for Intel to do a simultaneous launch in the U.S. as well.
A few weeks ago, TabletPCReviewSpot.com published their Fall 2005 Tablet PC Buyer’s Guide. Among the Tablet PC’s mentioned were several of the ultraportables: IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad X41 Tablet, the Fujitsu LifeBook 4000 Series, the HP/Compaq TC4200, Fujitsu LifeBook P1510, and the Electrovaya Scribbler 3000.
Screen wise, they mention is that Fujitsu uses what it calls a “casual outdoor” screen, a glass screen with a special coating that lets light pass through more uniformly in outdoor situations. and that it’s not ideal for pictures and movies; it is better suited for reading and writing, especially in outdoor situations.
