Fujitsu is the latest vendor to launch a business-focused tablet, in the shape of the Stylistic Q550 which majors on security with a built-in fingerprint reader, smartcard support and an encrypted solid state drive.
Available globally from April, the Q550 has a 10.1in screen supporting pen-driven and multi-touch gesture inputs, and runs Microsoft's Windows 7.
The system is based on Intel's Oak Trail Atom platform, and includes wireless LAN, Bluetooth and optional 3G broadband connectivity.
Fujitsu said that the Stylistic Q550 will ease the security concerns of enterprise customers thanks to its built-in security features.
These include full-disk encryption of the drive, a fingerprint reader and smartcard reader, with a feature called Advanced Theft Protection as an optional extra.
Fujitsu mobile product marketing manager Brad Hagan explained that many other slate-style tablets do not address the business and security needs of enterprise customers.
"This is our sweet spot, and we are targeting the professional and government computing markets with a new slate PC that draws on more than 20 years' experience in building mobile computers for enterprise use," he said.
The new tablet is to be officially launched at the CeBit trade fair in Hanover next week, and full specifications and pricing will be disclosed at a later date.
