Fujitsu U2010 Official

Fujitsu today used Singapore as the venue for its next most recent update to the LifeBook U series. Already previewed in basic form, the 5.6-inch convertible tablet switches from the A110 processor to a faster and more efficient 1.6GHz Atom that gives it as much as eight hours of battery life with an optional extended battery and 64GB solid-state drive. In an unusual addition, the ultra-mobile PC also has its own FM transmitter to pipe sound to a nearby radio and save the trouble of porting external speakers.

The very small size also finds room for a 1.3-megapixel camera and a fingerprint reader for security.

No prices or ship dates have been posted for the U2010, though it will start out with a 60GB rotating hard drive and a standard-capacity battery. The new LifeBook ships in five colors for Singapore but is likely to arrive in the US in a single color and at a price close to the $999 for the U810.
