Fujitsu T2010 at FCC
Fujitsu is about to release its next generation of convertible tablet notebooks, according to a new FCC filing. Its LifeBook T2010 will draw on the ultramobile parts of Intel's Santa Rosa technology to keep the system thin and light (1.3 inches, 3.3 pounds) while still offering a swiveling 12-inch touch display. Systems will come with either a 1.06GHz or 1.2GHz ultra-low voltage Core 2 Duo, Intel's X3100 video, and as much as 4GB of memory. Certain models will also come with Intel's 802.11n Wi-Fi chipset while simpler versions start with 802.11g, according to the leaked manual that accompanies FCC test results. Bluetooth and a full-size, 6-cell battery are also known to be standard.
No insights are provided as to when the system will actually release stores. However, the use of already available technology suggests a relatively near-term release with at least a 60GB hard drive and 802.11g. Costs will most likely compare to the roughly $1,500 ThinkPad X61 and similar ultraportables. [via PC Joint]
