Fujitsu U2010 with Atom

Fujitsu today supplied an early look at the LifeBook U2010, its sequel to the U810. The design shares the unique twist of a rotating 5.6-inch display, which offers a convertible tablet at the size of an ultra-mobile PC, but promises improvements both inside and out. The U2010 is the company's first to use the Intel Atom processor and should run faster while lasting longer than the original's A110 chip; it also builds in an HSPA modem and a GPS for wide-area 3G wireless and navigation respectively.

The Japanese PC builder has also improved the comfort of the miniature PC by widening the keyboard from five rows to six, giving more space for typing without affecting the number of features.

Beyond a fingerprint reader and the use of Windows Vista, most other features of the notebook are unknown. Fujitsu nonetheless promises the system for Taiwan and other areas by July at a price equivalent to $1,295. A US launch is likely, though specifications for the micro-PC may change before a release in the West. [via Digitimes]
