Share


Fujitsu are the latest company to show their tablet hand here at CeBIT 2011 in Hanover, Germany, showcasing the Windows 7 touting Stylistic Q550 at their booth.

A 10.1 inch capacitive touch slate, it’s still very much a work-in-progress, with many software functions in need of a tweak before the planned May shipping date.

Still, there was a lot of interesting ideas at play, particularly when it comes to security. It’s not merely password protection of facial recognition in the Q550, which instead employs a fingerprint scanner, SmartCard reader and high-end encryption methods. Fujitsu look very much to be aiming at an enterprise rather than consumer market here.

Pen input was not working on the demo unit we tried, but should be ready in time for launch. 3G and Wi-Fi connections come as standard, whilst a swappable 8 hour battery should ensure you never run out of juice on the go.
