seems to be fully embracing dual-use scenarios these days, and rather than promote tablets over notebooks or vice versa, the company just unveiled a couple of products that pull double-duty as either one. These include the Stylistic Q702 business hybrid tablet and the Lifebook T902 convertible laptop.
The Q702 is powered by a 3rd Generation Intel Core i3 or i5 processor (Ivy Bridge) and weighs 1.88 pounds. It has an 11.6-inch AH-IPS HD display, a 64GB or 128GB mSATA solid state drive, Intel HD Graphics 4000, 4GB of system memory, USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, HDMI output, SD/SDHC card slot, and is available with Windows 7 Professional at launch (Fujitsu says it's Windows 8 ready).
"Powered by 3rd generation Intel Core vPro processors, the Stylistic Q702 delivers breakthrough performance and power efficiency with a beautiful slate design and the flexibility of an added keyboard for creation capability needed for business productivity," said Rick Echevarria, vice president, Intel Architecture Group and general manager, Business Client Platforms Division, Intel Corporation. "3rd generation Intel Core vPro platforms enable more secure environments and enhance the experiences of workers and IT to compute with confidence in all areas, including immersive collaboration usages and harnessing big data to gain and share business insights."
A little bit bigger is the Lifebook T902 convertible. It has a 13.3-inch HD+ anti-glare screen is also powered by Intel's Ivy Bridge platform. Other features include a built-in modular bay with quick release latch, up to 16GB of DDR3-1600 memory, optional WWAN or LTE radios, and Windows 7 (also Windows 8 ready).
Fujitsu says it plans to offer the Stylistic Q702 and Lifebook T902 in Q3 for starting at $1,099 and $1,899, respectively.
