Fujitsu has unveiled two Windows 8-ready portables geared for the business professional. The systems will ship with Windows 7 sometime in the third quarter but it's clear that both were designed with Windows 8 in mind.
The Stylistic Q702 is an 11.6-inch hybrid tablet that supports stylus input and can be paired with an optional keyboard dock much like the Asus Transformer Prime. Inside we find third generation Ivy Bridge processor support (Core i3 or Core i5), 4GB of system memory and up to 128GB of internal flash storage. The display is coated with Corning Gorilla Glass and operates at 1,366 x 768. We are told the tablet weights 1.88-pounds and can run for 4.5 hours on a single charge.
Fujitsu's LifeBook T902 features a 13-inch Gorilla Glass display that runs at 1,600 x 900, i5 and i7 Ivy Bridge processor options, up to 16GB of RAM and up to 11 hours of battery life (with the add-on battery). Customers can configure the T902 with optional WWAN or LTE radios and there's even a modular bay that can house an optical drive, an extra hard drive or a spare battery. Additionally, the slot can be left unoccupied to reduce overall weight (4.1-pounds without optical drive).
These business-minded systems include a bevy of professional security features including HDD and BIOS password protection and Trusted Platform Module on the Q702 and Intel Anti-Theft Technology and a biometric fingerprint sensor on the T902, just to name a few.
Pricing starts at $1,099 for the Q702 and $1,899 on the T902. Both systems will be available starting in the third quarter of this year through Fujitsu or one of their many retail partners.
