Fujitsu turns to design, 3G with new LifeBook

Fujitsu LifeBook P8010

Switching away from its normal emphasis on work systems, Fujitsu today has unveiled the LifeBook P8010 LE. The limited-run notebook gets a glossy, pink gold hue on its back and is one of the PC maker's few systems to integrate 3G cellular access; a built-in HSDPA modem gives it high-speed Internet access in most 3G-capable countries. The 12-inch portable is also relatively rare in using a lid design that allows for extremely narrow side bezels around the display that gives Fujitsu an opportunity to shrink the notebook design without compromising on the screen size.

The system is close to its more mundane reference version outside of the color and wide-area wireless, with a low-voltage Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, and a built-in DVD burner in spite of the notebook's small 2.9-pound frame. The system is also still rated at up to six hours of life on battery when going without 3G.

Launch information for the limited P8010 is unavailable, though its similarity should lead to a short turnaround for the new model. [via Boing Boing]
