Fujitsu Intros 2 New Laptops

Fujitsu Computer Systems has introduced two new notebooks, one an update to its popular convertible tablet/notebook and the other an ultramobile PC the size of a day-timer, which has only been available in Japan till now.

The Lifebook U810 weighs a little more than 1.5 pounds and offers a 5.6-inch LCD with touch screen functionality via a stylus. Despite its small size, it's still a functioning PC, which is Fujitsu's selling point.

It also includes a full-function QWERTY keyboard, 1GB of memory and a 40GB hard drive, as well as with Windows Vista or XP Tablet edition. It also supports 802.11g wireless networking and has up to 5.5 hours of battery life.

"More ultramobiles have been like a Blackberry, where you use your thumbs to type," said Paul Moore, the senior director for mobile product marketing at Fujitsu. "This has a fully usable keyboard on which you can type."
