It's typically atypical, which is something that might be expected from a Japanese firm like Fujitsu. Although this phone isn't even a smartphone, and doesn't appear to have Android on it, but one thing's for sure: it doesn't stink. That's right, despite what you might think from the description, this "gorgeously designed" flip phone doesn't stink, because it has a special chip where a woman can dab her perfume. The phone also has a "diamond-like jewel block of two-karat cubic zirconia." The new mobile phone, dubbed the Fujitsu F-022, is the result of a collaboration between Fujitsu and jewelry,...

ARM used to be an important company. Today, ARM is a critical company, and with mobility becoming ever more important, ARM's stake in the market is growing tremendously. Fujitsu Semiconductor is the latest company to hop onboard the train that ARM is powering, with the two signing a strategic partnership that enables a license agreement between the duo. The agreement covers ARM IP products, and through the strategic agreement, Fujitsu Semiconductor will offer platforms featuring the latest ARM technology including the Cortex-A15 processor, Mali graphics and CoreLink systems IP, in order to help...

Fujitsu getting into the tablet game? It's true! With the world waiting patiently for Microsoft's big push into this market, the Stylistic Q550 will be one of the first Windows 7-based tablets to come from a major name in the industry. A few options popped up last year, but all of them seemed underpowered and short-lived. But this particular tablet, which should be fully revealed at CeBIT in Germany next month, will be one of the first to ship with Intel's Oak Trail platform. That should provide more power and less battery drain, and it may be the magic bullet that finally makes Win7 a legitimate... Read more...
MeeGo isn't dead yet, but it's barely breathing. Into this life-supported world, Fujitsu birthed its first MeeGo netbook ... and the world yawned. The world also hardly took notice of the MeeGo tablet that Intel is demonstrating at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Not that the new Fujitsu netbook deserved much fanfair. Fujitsu merely took its middle-of-the pack Windows 7 Lifebook MH330 netbook and added the option to run MeeGo on it. The MH330, be it a MeeGo or a Windows 7 version, uses a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N455 with 1GB of RAM, includes a 250GB hard drive and a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 LED-backlit... Read more...
Red Hat, the company responsible for delivering Linux and a myriad other open source solutions, has today announced an expanded partnership with Fujitsu that extends the technology leaders' collaboration to the cloud. We're starting to hear more and more about the cloud these days, and it's not a surprise. As Internet connections become easier to find, companies are relying more and more on data stored on a remotely accessible server. Why carry around local files when you can keep them in the cloud, accessible by everyone, from anywhere? The infrastructure is sliding into place to support a cloud-driven... Read more...
Wireless charging. To some, it's a dream. To others, it's a reality. But no one would argue that it's as advanced as it should be. PowerMat has proven that with accessory cases and a plugged-in mat, one can "wirelessly" charge their cellphone. But it still requires physical contact, and the base station still has to be plugged into a wall. It's not hard to see the holes in the theory, and while it's a step in the right direction, this isn't the idea we had in mind when dreaming of wireless electricity a decade ago. Announced today over in Japan, Fujitsu has developed new technology for the design... Read more...
Ever wondered what qualifies as a "slate-beating" PC? Neither have we, but apparently Fujitsu has, hence how the company is describing its latest convertible notebook, the Lifebook T580. Sporting a 10.1-inch screen, Fujitsu packs considerably more hardware than what you'll find any current (or currently announced) tablets, though it's saddled with a resistive touchscreen rather than capacitive. Nevertheless, it does support four-finger multitouch interactions, including pinch-to-zoom, a three-finger double-tap to minimize all windows, selecting an area of the screen with all four fingers, and a...

AMD may be killing off their ATI namesake on GPUs, but we all know graphics are still mega-important. And so does Fujitsu, evidently. The company's new LIFEBOOK AH530 GFX is one of the most powerful gaming notebooks around, but you'd never know by looking at the case. It's a small, sleek machine that looks like a standard student laptop or maybe even a stylish business PC. There's no 2"-thick chassis or 18 fan vents to be found. The trick here is the external GPU, which allows the notebook to remain small and nimble while giving hardcore gamers the ability to beef up the frame rates whenever they... Read more...
One of the toughest reader questions to answer when it comes to hardware recommendations is "Which vendor gives the best support?" In theory, as journalists, we have both direct access to corporate staff and a wide reader base to poll from. In practice, companies claim this sort of information constitutes trade secrets and lock it down tighter than Ft. Knox. Laptop Magazine recently set out to rank the various major laptop vendors (Acer, Apple, Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, Gateway, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Samsung, Sony, and Toshiba). beginning with a set of three basic questions for each. Most people aren't aware... Read more...
Convertible Tablet PCs have been around for what feels like forever. We remember these machines being available at least 4-5 years ago, but nearly no one took them seriously. There just wasn't a good operating system available for this form factor, and the battery life was generally too poor for people to use these as dedicated tablets. But that hasn't stopped Fujitsu from continuing to pursue the sector, and now that slates are all the rage, people are probably looking for the best of two worlds more often as well. It's half tablet and half notebook, but it's unique in that it has rather impressive... Read more...
The future of electronic paper (e-paper) is looking brighter. Fujitsu has enhanced its color e-paper so that it now features the world's highest-level of color image quality. By redesigning the panel structure and image re-write methods of the company's previous-version of color e-paper, Fujitsu has improved the contrast ratio of its color e-paper by threefold. The new color e-paper has a 7:1 contrast ratio, offers brighter color, and has an image re-write speed that is twice as fast as Fujitsu's previous color e-paper with the ability to re-write a high-resolution image (1,024 x 768 XGA) in 0.7...

When you think Fujitsu, you probably think notebooks, or maybe storage products like hard drives and optical media. But do you ever think "power strip?" You might begin to soon, as the company has made public a new prototype of sorts that might just up-end the power strip market for good. And while that may not seem like a big deal to the Average Joe, hardcore gadget nerds know just how important a good, well-spaced-out power strip can be. There's nothing like coming up one socket too short! The company has designed a new strip that's outfitted with a power sensor to "measure electrical energy... Read more...
Ah, Fujitsu! We almost forgot you guys were still making netbooks! The LifeBook MH330, however, is a real looker, and at just 1.1kg, it won't kill your back when lugging it around. It's one of the slimmest netbooks available, and it's available in both black or red. As for specifications and the like, there's a 1.66GHz Atom N450 processor, a 250GB hard drive, Bluetooth 2.1, a 5-in-1 card slot, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and a 10.1" WSVGA display. The panel has a 1024x600 resolution and a 400:1 contrast ratio, and there's also a pair of stereo speakers, a spill-resistant keyboard, and a special "DVD Sharing... Read more...
We still haven't quite figured out Japan's fascination with flip phones with huge, long displays, but there's no denying that the technology within them is second to none. This past week, Fujitsu--who makes an awful lot of phones for the Asia-Pacific market--announced a wild new flip phone with not one, but two killer features that really set it apart. The DoCoMo SMART Series F-03B looks like you're average Japanese flip phone at first glance, but it's actually far more sophisticated than one might imagine. Aside from handling text messages and typical phone calls, it also has a wicked camera.... Read more...
