Fujitsu is showing off a new Windows tablet with a 10 inch touchscreen display, a keyboard dock that turns the tablet into a laptop, and support for pressure-sensitive pen input.
The tablet’s called the Fujitsu Stylistic Q555 and it should be available in select markets in December or January. Just don’t expect it to be cheap: Fujitsu’s known for offering enterprise-friendly hardware at premium prices.
The Fujitsy Stylistic Q555 has an Intel Atom Z3795 quad-core Bay Trail processor, 4GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of of storage. Fujitsu says it should get up to 10 hours of battery life.
The tablet has a 10.1 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel IPS display with support for 10-finger multitouch input as well as pen input.
It has an 8MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, and optional support for NFC, GPS, and cellular data.
Other features include stereo speakers, dual microphones, full-sized USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, a microSD card slot, micro HDMI port, and optional USB to Ethernet or VGA adapters. There’s also an optional “cradle” or docking station with HDMI, VGA, and Ethernet ports.
Fujitsu will offer the Stylistic Q555 with Windows 8.1 64-bit or Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit software.
Other business-friendly features include a TMP security module, an optional SmartCard reader, an optional fingerprint scanner, an anti-glare coating on the display, four holes on the back which are positioned to let you connect a VESA mount or a hand strap.
Notebook Italia got a chance to check out the new 2-in-1 tablet in person, and shared this video:
I’m sure this is going to cost a lot and for the people who need that level of ruggedness and features, it’ll be worth the price. However, I’d accept some corner cutting if it’ll get the price below $1000 with the keyboard dock:
-Lower screen resolution but still keep the 16:10 ratio
-No VESA mount
Finally something that ticks all the boxes
-16:10 or squarer
-Proper keyboard dock
-usb 3, microsd, microhdmi.
– decent resolution
-enough ram and storage
The only thing it won’t tick is inexpensive!
Actually, there are brother-in-law tablets available in Japan since mid-October’14: Fujitsu WQ1/S (start from ~$850) and Fujitsu QH55/S (starts from ~$1250). Both lack WWAN.
See https://www.fujitsu-webmart.com/jp/webmart/!ui073?DAI_CODE=1976 and https://www.fujitsu-webmart.com/pc/ui016?WEB_STYLE=FARQ55S&SERIES_CODE=1878&ONLY=0 for more details. Both links in Japanese though 🙂
I wonder how the price will compare with the year old Q584. Some things are better and other things are worse.
4 GB of RAM huh. I guess it’ll be easier to install Linux on this assuming this is running the 64-bit version of Windows. Working Linux drivers is another thing though.
It is really running 64-bit Windows. I wouls have known had I read the entire article.
Seems promising. VESA on a tablet is rare!
Their stuff has build quality in spades normally. I still have my u810 and p1630 after years of use, second hand.
can fujitsu make anything that isn’t hideous and expensive?
Who cares about “hideous”? They are built like tanks. I would love to own one. The price is the big problem.
I thought the whte Q584 was hideous but this is a vast improvement. It is no surface pro 3 but it is okay.
The only thing that made the Q584 hideous looking was that it was in white. Otherwise, it looks nearly identical to the Q555.
White made it hideous. It was just the wrong color and I even like white tech.
How is this at all hideous? It looks like manly as awesome.
