Windows 7 Tablet: Fujitsu 10″ model – plus prototype video

We’ve been reporting a lot lately on all the new tablet devices coming onto the market after it seemed the Apple iPad was set to dominate for some time. The Samsung Galaxy Tab has seen great success since its recent release and there is news of plenty more tablet devices on the way, such as the Acer Android tablets, RIM BlackBerry PlayBook and an HP web OS tablet, all due next year.

Now it seems the competition is set to expand even further with the news that Fujitsu is to get in on the tablet action with one of its own. However this 10.1” tablet device will be very different in that it won’t run on a mobile operating system, instead it will run on Windows 7, an operating system for desktops. In many respects then the Fujitsu tablet will seem as much like a netbook as a tablet, according to Expert Reviews.

Pricing and a release date have not been confirmed yet other than early in 2011 and there are also no specs yet. However because we know it will operate Windows 7 it’s likely that the Fujitsu tablet will have a capacitive touch screen, at least a 1.5GHz Intel Atom processor and somewhere in the region of 1 or 2GB RAM.

The picture on this article comes from a prototype version released on YouTube. For more on the Fujitsu tablet go to expertreviews.co.uk.
