Fujitsu Limited is introducing the U Series of ultra-mobile PCs (UMPCs) to its FMV-LIFEBOOK line of notebook PCs. Intended for business users, the U Series is the world's smallest tablet-convertible UMPC, weighing only 580g and with a thickness of only 26.5mm.
Fujitsu was quick to adopt the Intel Ultra Mobile Platform 2007, announced in April 2007 in the new FMV-U8240.
The FMV-U8240 UMPC is available with Microsoft Windows Vista Business, enabling users to employ the same PC environment when they are outside the office as when they are in the office.
Its ultra-compact size makes it easy to carry around at all times, and with a maximum battery life of up to 8 hours, users can catch up on e-mail, process documents, and do research whenever they need to, without being tied to a desk.
The device has a 5.6" widescreen display (1,024 x 600 resolution) and keyboard with a 14-mm key pitch and 1.3mm travel. As part of the FMV family, the U Series comes with security features, including a security chip and fingerprint scanner.
