Fujitsu roadmap shows ultrabooks, Windows 8 in fall

Fujitsu conference shows off Windows 8 tablet,

Slides from a Fujitsu press conference held on Wednesday show that the company is planning on releasing ultrabooks later this year. At the same time, the fourth quarter will see the release of a Windows 8-powered tablet, the roadmap shared by Notebook Italia indicated. The notebooks will continue to be known as LifeBooks, while the tablets will carry the Fujitsu Stylistic brand name.

The first new gear to arrive will be two of the new ultrabooks, due in May. They will have Intel Ivy Bridge chips onboard, though no other information is known at this time. A mainstream Android tablet is due out in June, likely to be called the Fujitsu Stylistic M350. A Slimbook notebook should be out at the same time, likely sporting an ultra-low voltage processor.

September should see the release of a 'performance' tablet with a docking station/keyboard. It's likely to be closer in terms of tech specs to the Lenovo IdeaTab S2 rather than the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime and its keyboard. It may run on Windows.

An all-in-one desktop range is also due out before year's end, with touch displays and what sounds like cloud-based software and apps as well.
