Fujitsu’s unveils TH40D hybrid tablet
Fujitsu has shown its new TH40D tablet, which packs a slim, slide-out keyboard. It centers on a 10.1-inch 1024x600 display that can quickly be converted from a tablet form factor to a netbook style device. Much like the similar Samsung Slider, the new hybrid tablet device runs Windows 7 and is powered by an Intel Atom Z760 1.5GHz processor.
The system is underpinned by 1GB of RAM, and a 120GB hard drive. Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0+HS, 2x USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI output and an SD card slot provide connectivity. Its aluminum chassis helps to bring its weight down to around 2.3 pounds.
The Fujitsu TH40D will be available in Japan at the end of June for the equivalent of $990. [via Akihabara News]
