Fujitsu builds Tablet PC support into notebook

FUJITSU’S newest notebook computer, the LifeBook P1500, weighs just 1kg and can quickly convert into a Tablet PC with touchscreen and handwriting-recognition capabilities.

To some extent the tiny device, with a 1.2GHz Pentium M processor and an 8.9-inch screen, bridges the gap between conventional ultraportable computers and PDAs. It will most likely be used in specialised vertical markets such as healthcare.

Initially, Fujitsu will sell the LifeBook P1500 with Windows XP Professional pre-installed.

However, the company says by year end it will also be available with Microsoft’s Windows Tablet PC Edition.

While there are similarly configured ultraportable notebooks from other manufacturers, this is the only model that incorporates Tablet PC technology.

Fujitsu’s LifeBook products are distri-buted in New Zealand by PB Technologies.

The local price of the P1500 is yet to be determined, however the computer’s list price in America is US$1,499 — making it the cheapest Tablet PC currently available.
