The Fujitsu Lifebook UH900 is a tiny little machine with a 5.6 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel HD multitouch display. It looks a lot like a netbook, if one were shrunk down to half size. The keyboard is about 75% that of a full sized keyboard though, thanks to a rather large bezel on the sides of the display. You might even be able to touch type on it if you have tiny fingers.
Fujitsu is now taking orders for the UH900 for about $849. That puts this little guy squarely in Sony Vaio P territory,and it sports similar specs. The UH900 has a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Z530 CPU, 2GB of RAM, 62GB SSD, and runs Windows 7 Home Premium. The mini-notebook has 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS. It has a 2 cell, 1800mAh battery.
I got a chance to check out the Fujitsu Lifebook UH900 at CES, and it’s a nifty little device, although I don’t think I’d have that much use for it — especially not with a price tag that’s 2 to 3 times higher than that of most netbooks. But Fujitsu is targeting the UH900 at niche markets such as health care where the ability to carry a fully functional computer in your coat pocket could come in handy.

I thought the Z530 only referred to 1.6 GHz CPUs,
and that Z520 only referred to 1.33 GHz Atoms.
So the UH900 should really be listed as 1.6 GHz
Fujitsu makes very high quality equipment. I would say Brad is right that this is targeted at a niche market, but the medical industry isn’t going to look at anything with that short of a run time.
Meh, it only has a 1800 mAh 2-cell unit at 7.2V that an article from jkontherun.com estimates should give 2.5 hours of run-time. For the features I’d much rather get a Viliv N5 and it’s near 5 hours run-time.
