Dubai, UAE, December 29, 2010 – Fujitsu has announced the launch of its LIFEBOOK T580 Tablet PC with 3-way input and a 10.1-inch Superfine HD Display. Weighing only 1.4kg, the LIFEBOOK T580 increases productivity by keeping users mobile and connected to their business wherever they are, while a host of security features keeps data safe at all times.
Building on almost two decades of leadership and experience in designing and manufacturing its own products, the T580 is Fujitsu’s latest addition to its Tablet PC family, and is powered by Intel®’s Core™ i5 processor, up to 8GB RAM and a wide variety of SSD and SATA hard disk drives. The LIFEBOOK T580 also comes with 4-finger multiple touch functionality, enabling users to perform actions directly on the screen providing an intuitive user experience. To keep data safe around the clock, the T580 offers the highest security available including features such as the Advanced Theft Protection system, fingerprint sensor and Kensington Lock in addition to Fujitsu’s own security systems.
“Since 1993 Fujitsu Tablet PCs have been serving in demanding roles to meet the ever-changing needs of consumers,” said Chandan Mehta, Product Manager at Fujitsu Technology Solutions. “The result of 19 distinct generations of tablets, the LIFEBOOK T580 is one of the lightest and most powerful traditional Tablet PCs to enter the market. It is also one of the most secure, offering a range of security features to keep hardware, software and users’ data safe, which is key when using mobile devices on the move.”
The LIFEBOOK T580’s 3-Way Input means that users have the choice to either touch, write or type, alternating between the signature Fujitsu Stylus Pen, the ergonomic spill-resistant keyboard or use the new 4-point multi-touch technology to perform actions, such as arranging items and files, directly on the screen. This latest 4-point multi-touch functionality offers a rich gesture vocabulary, opening up a whole new approach to interacting directly on screen that provides users with a unique tablet experience.
Consumer and business users looking for the ultimate viewing experience can enjoy a sensational video and audio experience thanks to the built-in HDMI and VGA output while the 10.1-inch SuperFine HD TFT display with auto brightness control runs on Intel®’s HD Graphics processor providing stunning 3D graphics and shading effects.
The perfect solution for business users working on the move, the T580 has an auto-rotating screen, finished with bi-directional hinges for increased mobility, while auto brightness control – using the light-sensitive ambient light sensor – ensures that the screen is clearly visible from virtually every angle by automatically adjusting the brightness of the LED display according to the ambient light conditions, helping users save battery power without compromising performance.
The 1.4kg lightweight, portable, wireless notebook runs on the energy-saving Intel® CULV platform and has a prolonged battery life, capable of running for over 9 hours with a choice of either 3-cell or 6-cell Li-Ion batteries. Embedded 3G/UMTS combined with integrated GPS, WLAN and Bluetooth guarantee connectivity and enable users to stay productive and in touch with their digital world wherever they are.
Priced at AED 4,999, the new LIFEBOOK T580 is currently available at leading retail outlets across the UAE.
