Fujitsu brings solid-state drives to LifeBook tablets

updated 09:15 am EDT, Mon March 19, 2007

Fujitsu LifeBook SSD

Fujtisu this morning became one of the first tablet PC designers to add flash-based drives to its lineup. Both the 8.9-inch, diminutive LifeBook P1610 and the 12.1-inch B6210 now have the option of either a 16GB or 32GB solid-state drive in place of their normal hard disks. While this shrinks the available storage, Fujitsu says the changeover is worthwhile for the users most likely to use a convertible tablet: the lack of moving parts guards against a sudden drop and also extends the amount of valuable battery life.

Both models are otherwise similar to their originals, with a 1.2GHz ultra-low Core Solo processor forming the backbone of their performance. Prices for the option weren't revealed but should command a premium over hard disk versions.
