Fujitsu has today introduces a brand new smaller fully featured tablet PC, the Fujitsu LIFEBOOK T580 Tablet PC, measuring up with a 10.1-inch screen size, the slate-beating LIFEBOOK T580 squeezes full-size notebook features and technology into a smaller, lighter and lower-priced package.
The Slate-beating Fujitsu LIFEBOOK T580 Tablet PC combines touch screen mobility with the convenience of a keyboard and is the flexible alternative mobile working on a slate – removing the frustration of slow responses by packing much more processor power, and delivering convenient practicalities for all-day working, such as a keyboard, two USB slots, SD card and SmartCard readers, a webcam, and outputs for both VGA monitors and high-definition HDMI displays.
Weighing just 1.4kg, the new Fujitsu LIFEBOOK T580 Tablet PC converts from a notebook to a touch screen tablet PC with a simple twist of the unique bi-directional rotatable screen.
This provides a full touch screen experience including support for four-finger multiple touch, and enables fingertip control for up to 14 different gestures, as well as touch-based double-tapping, scrolling, magnifying and rotating.
Through integrated GPS, users will always be able to find their way around. And there is no need to feel burdened by this notebook any longer, at just 1.4kg it’s easy to take wherever one like.
The tablet also offers 4-finger multiple touch that is the capability to operate on the touch-screen with up to four fingers at the same time. Double-tap, scroll, zoom, rotate – with your fingers directly on the display.
The Fujitsu LIFEBOOK T580 Tablet PC also features a dual Digitizer that delivers the highest accuracy and pressure sensitivity when working with a stylus, and the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system recognizes handwriting in 26 languages, plus voice commands.
Like all Fujitsu LIFEBOOK tablet PC Series models, even in direct sunlight, the Fujitsu LIFEBOOK T580 Tablet PC’s screen display is bright and clear thanks to high-definition LED backlighting with an Ambient Light Sensor that automatically adjusts display brightness, while a smear-proof coating means no distractions from fingerprints.
