Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 Coming Next Week
Fujitsu is preparing to ship its new Stylistic Q550 tablet computer next week. The tablet PC will carry a razor sharp 1.5GHz Intel Atom Z670 Oak Trail processor, a 10.1″ 1280 x 800 resolution IPS display, dual digitizer for stylus input and four-finger multi-touch control. Users will be able to pop in a 2.5″ SSD into the machine to experience the full force of the 2GB laptop.
Of course, you get your standard WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth support, and optional 3G and GPS connectivity as well. Ports include an HDMI output, SDHC memory card slot, USB port, and a fingerprint scanner. The graphics are powered by Intel GMA600 graphics chipset. The device will roar on Windows 7 Home Premium and the tablet is set to release on May 13th.
We don’t have any information on pricing just yet but if I had to wager a guess, I would say $400 or $500 USD. This will be a terrific computer for web browsing, emailing, and word processing, but probably not something you want to do heavy work with Photoshop. Two gigs of RAM isn’t exactly much to work with for those “more intensive” applications. And for those of you saying “Oh great, now I have to choose a new tablet out of 50 choices out there”, well, don’t forget this one has a fingerprint reader!
