Fujitsu calls on resellers to revisit massive potential of taking tablet PCs to market

Fujitsu is calling on resellers to revisit the potential opportunities presented by tablet PCs, following the launch of the newest addition to its range – the LIFEBOOK T730.

The company says that their new convertible tablet is generating a great deal of interest as both corporate and business professionals need something that can deliver both the power and functionality of the standard PC laptop and all the advantages of the slate type form factor and touch-screen technology.

Darren Neath, channel sales director for Fujitsu, says that there is real potential for a strong revival in tablet PC sales. “The high visibility of touch right now and the growing acceptance that portable PCs can be used in a number of different ways – as productivity tools, flexible presentation devices, and for specialist mobile applications to which touch-sensitivity is suited, means that tablets suddenly have a much broader appeal. This could be a very good time to put them in front of customers again.”

Brad Hagan, product marketing manager for Mobile Clients at Fujitsu, says that the added functionality offered by Fujitsu’s convertible tablet PCs makes them a much better choice for professional and corporate environments than simple slates. “For serious applications you need plenty of power and functionality in a system that can also provide users maximum flexibility. With the latest 2010 Intel® Core™ processors, built-in 3G/UMTS featuring GPS support and multi touch functionality, the LIFEBOOK T730 combines the advantages of the standard portable with the slate format, so it has all the capabilities that a professional user needs.”

Flexibility comes from Fujitsu’s own twist-to-touch bi-directional Tablet screen, Windows® 7 multi-touch technology and modular bay capability, accommodating either a DVD drive, second battery, Blu-ray Disc™ drive or second hard disk drive. Even with a single battery, the LIFEBOOK T730 offers all-day runtime, due to energy-saving features such as an integrated Ambient Light Sensor that automatically adjusts display brightness to the working environment.

Fujitsu has the most comprehensive range of convertible tablet PCs on the market today, so resellers can be confident of meeting the varied requirements of today’s business professionals, says Hagan. “We have an excellent choice of 13.3 and 12.1-inch convertible tablets and later this year we’ll be adding 10.1-inch models to the line-up, so there are good options available for customers who want a larger viewing area and for those who want added portability.”

For a mobile user, security is also a top priority. The new LIFEBOOK T730 offers biometric fingerprint logon, secure data encryption via optional TPM (Trusted Platform Module) and SmartCard support. Also available on the LIFEBOOK T Series is optional subscription-based ATP (Advanced Theft Protection) that enables a lost or stolen LIFEBOOK T730 to be remotely locked, have its data erased, then speedily recovered by assisting in identifying the notebook’s current location.
