The Fujitsu Stylistic Q572 is a 10 inch tablet designed to run Windows 8. But that hardly makes it stand out in a crowd. What does is the processor.
Fujitsu’s new 10 inch tablet is one of the first computers set to ship with an AMD Z-60 Hondo processor. That’s AMD’s new low-power chip with a TDP of 4.5W and Radeon HD 6250 graphics for HD video and 3D graphics acceleration.
The Hondo chip is basically AMD’s answer to Intel’s Clover Trail processor. Both are low power chips designed for tablets and similar devices running Windows 8. Both are designed to offer long battery life and moderate performance. But AMD’s processor packs a bit more graphics punch.
I haven’t had a chance to test a Hondo-based system yet though, so it’s difficult to say which chipset offers better all-around performance.
But the Fujitsu Stylistic Q572 looks like an interesting tablet. It’s aimed at business customers and Fujitsu offers a wide range of options.
The tablet will be available with a choice of Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro, up to 4GB of RAM, and a 64GB to 256GB solid state disk. It features a 1366 x 768 pixel IPS dual-digitizer display. That means you can use your fingers or a digital pen to interact with the user interface.
All models feature 1 USB 3.0 port, 1 USB 2.0 port, HDMI, and an SDXC card slot. There’s also a SIM card slot and optional 3G/4G. It also features Gigabit Ethernet, front and rear cameras, and a docking port.
Fujitsu says the tablet gets about 7 hours of battery life.
The Fujitsu Stylistic Q572 measures 10.8″ x 6.9″ x 0.55″ and weighs about 1.8 pounds.
