Fujitsu has disclosed more details of its Stylistic Q550 Windows tablet, including a touch-based user interface, more information on specifications and how much the business-focused device is likely to cost.
Announced at CeBIT in February, the Stylistic Q550 is aimed squarely at the corporate market, runs Windows 7 and has a number of security features that are missing from other tablets, such as encrypted storage, a fingerprint scanner and smartcard reader.
Fujitsu told V3.co.uk that the Q550 is expected to be available in the UK by mid May, and pricing is likely to be between £749 and £849, depending on solid state disk (SSD) capacity and whether built-in 3G broadband is required.
Full specifications have still to be revealed, but the unit is based on Intel's Oak Trail Atom processor with 2GB memory and will ship with either a 30GB or 62GB self-encrypting SSD. Wireless LAN and Bluetooth are standard, while a 3G modem is optional.
It has a 10.1in 1280 x 800 display with a brightness of 400 nits, and a wide viewing angle so that the screen can still be read when placed flat on a desk in front of the user. It supports multi-touch gesture input and a digital stylus for capturing handwriting and sketches.
The Q550 also features standard-sized USB and HDMI ports, plus an SD Card slot for Flash storage. It also has a connector on its bottom edge for an optional docking cradle that holds the device upright and provides four USB ports for connecting peripherals.
