In December, an FCC listing exposed Fujitsu's LifeBook T900 convertible tablet, but details were limited to a processor and chipset. The system has now launched in North America and Fujitsu's base "recommended configuration" starts at $1,889.

At that price you get a 13.3-inch WXGA LED display with active digitizer, an Intel Core i5-520M and integrated graphics, 2GB of DDR3 1066MHz, a 160GB 5400RPM HDD, a DVD burner, gigabit Ethernet, 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, a webcam and mic, a six-cell battery, and Windows 7 Professional 32-bit or 64-bit.

Other niceties are also mentioned, such as fingerprint security, a user-cleanable dust filter, and a spill-resistant keyboard. Upgrades include a capacitive multitouch display, a 3.33GHz Core i7-620M, up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 500GB 5400RPM, 320GB 7200RPM, or 128GB SSD for storage, which could easily drive the price beyond $3,000.

Fujitsu's UH900 UMPC has also landed in North America, around two months after its Asian release.

The device offers a 5.6-inch 1280x800 multitouch display, a 1.6GHz Atom, 2GB of DDR2 533MHz RAM, a webcam, Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, a two-cell battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium. For $850, it ships with a 64GB SSD, but a 32GB edition will reportedly be available.
