Fujitsu LifeBook T2020 Introduced

Fujitsu LifeBook T2020 Fujitsu has quietly released an update to it’s 12.1″ Fujitsu LifeBook T2010 (available during the summer of last year). It’s the Fujitsu LifeBook T2020. It’s a “convertible” laptop – the LED-backlit display can be rotated from a conventional laptop form factor to a Tablet PC form factor. The 12.1″ touchscreen has an active digitizer and there are two display options – one for indoor viewing, the other for indoor and outdoor viewing.

Truc Bui over at GottaBeMobile points out that while most of the updates over the T2010 are minor, the T2020 apparently offers a much better latch design.

It’s powered by Intel Core 2 Duo Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) CPUs.

Base model for the US:
– Intel Core 2 Duo SU9300 (1.2GHz)
– 1GB RAM (DDR3)
– 120GB HDD
– Atheros XSPAN® Wireless LAN (802.11a/b/g/draft-n)
– No internal optical drive (either USB or one of the port replicators that has a DVD drive)

A 6-cell battery comes standard (up to 6 hours, 45 minutes of battery life), with an optional 9-cell battery providing up 11 hours of battery life. With the 6-cell battery, you are looking at 3.5 pounds (1.59kg). The 9-cell adds just a little bit of weight – up to 3.82 pounds (1.73kg).

At some point in the future, a 64GB or 128GB Solid State Drive (SSD) option will be available, along with AT&T mobile broadband options.

The base $1,699 model shows a shipping date of October 24, 2008.
