Fujitsu LifeBook at FCC

Fujitsu will soon be adding a new ultra-portable LifeBook notebook PC to its range, according to an FCC filing online. The P1630 would effectively replace the current P1620 but retain the former's 8.9-inch touch-screen display good for 1280x768-pixel resolution. It will, however, use a new ultra low-voltage processor, Intel's Core 2 Duo SU9400 running at 1.4GHz.

The chip, based on 45nm architecture, will also feature an 800MHz FSB and 3MB of L2 cache, both marked improvements over the 533MHz FSB and 2MB of L2 cache U7600 chip rated at 1.2GHz used in the outgoing P1620. A new integrated graphics chipset, the X4500, will also be part of the package. Up to 2GB of RAM will be supported by the motherboard as well.

The portable notebook tested by the FCC also sported a fingerprint reader, which is a rarity in the class, as well as more common integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and LAN connectivity. Expansion options will include a PCMCIA slot, SD card reader, and a VGA output in addition to a pair of USB ports.

No pricing or actual release dates are known, but Fujitsu lists the P1620's starting price at nearly $2,100. [via JKK Mobile]

    1.2ghz not 1.4

    sad to see that the 1.4ghz chip is NOT what the 1630 has. The only real noticeable upgrade from the 1620 is the webcam.

    I guess I'll keep my 1510d for another year... hopefully the p17xx will have an active digitizer
