Cosmetically similar to the LifeBook T5010 convertible tablet, the T900 will be a major performance upgrade with a 2.66GHz mobile Core i7 that will effectively behave like a quad-core processor. Its graphics are likely to remain integrated, but as the i7 will have a new generation of on-processor graphics, visual performance should be faster as well.
Fujitsu UH900 the smallest multi-touch PC yet
Fujitsu on Thursday unveiled what could be the most technically advanced UMPC to date. The LifeBook UH900 has just a 5.6-inch screen but uses a capacitive multi-touch display that takes finger input; appropriately, it comes with Windows 7 Home Premium and gets touch support out of the box.

Intel Tangent Bay concept
Ahead of its Developer Forum, Intel has demonstrated a new notebook concept it hopes might be more widespread. Nicknamed Tangent Bay, the prototype embeds three OLED multi-touch screens in the main body and makes theses a central part of the interface. They can be used to play media without taking up space on the main display but can also interact with each other: a video queued in one can be played on the other. Content can also be dragged to and from the sub-displays as well as the main LCD.

In an unusual addition, the ultra-mobile PC also has its own FM transmitter to pipe sound to a nearby radio and save the trouble of porting external speakers.
Fujitsu LifeBook P8010
Switching away from its normal emphasis on work systems, Fujitsu today has unveiled the LifeBook P8010 LE. The limited-run notebook gets a glossy, pink gold hue on its back and is one of the PC maker's few systems to integrate 3G cellular access; a built-in HSDPA modem gives it high-speed Internet access in most 3G-capable countries. The 12-inch portable is also relatively rare in using a lid design that allows for extremely narrow side bezels around the display that gives Fujitsu an opportunity to shrink the notebook design without compromising on the screen size.
Fujitsu Penryn Notebooks
Joining in with other notebook makers, Fujitsu has launched an update to its LifeBook range to use Intel's Penryn-era mobile processors. The 17-inch N6470 (shown) is considered the PC builder's desktop replacement and ships with a 2.6GHz Core 2 Duo that helps with general performance as well as playing HD movies through the optional Blu-ray drive. It also improves storage with dual 300GB drives (or 600GB total) replacing the 250GB disks (500GB) of the older model but carries over the Radeon HD 2600 graphics.
