NEWS: Fujitsu announces Stylistic Q550… the Enterprise-class Slate PC for Windows

[I’m late posting this.  It was sitting in my drafts.  I thought I’d posted this months ago.  Sigh.]

clip_image002Considering how little attention she gives to Windows on Tablets, (sob) you know this has got to be reasonably exciting if Mary Jo Foley actually decided to write about it on her “All About Microsoft” blog.  Yay!

The Quick Rundown:

  1. INCLUDES BOTH CAPACITIVE MULTITOUCH & ACTIVE DIGITIZER
    This means you can use both your finger on the screen to manipulate screen content and a built-in stylus for entering data via handwriting or otherwise.
  2. BUILT-IN TRUSTED PLATFORM MODULE CHIP
    This is the only Slate device running Windows 7 that has a TPM chip in it, which can provide native DirectAccess (Secure VPN-less connectivity to corporate Intranets) and rich AES-secure BitLocker Drive Encryption.
  3. 10 HOUR BATTERY LIFE
    This is also has a ludicrous 10hr battery life with a super-speed 32 or 64GB SSD drive & a highly efficient Intel Oaktrail chipset that enables high performance 1080p full screen video without killing battery life.
