Singapore, August 06, 2008 — Fujitsu PC Asia Pacific today proudly unveils the LifeBook U2010, the successor of the futuristic Ultra Mobile PC (UMPC), the LifeBook U1010, which won over many Fujitsu converts along with a host of worldwide accolades. Mobile professionals, glamazons and urbanites will be enchanted with the computing delights contained in this polished powerhouse and they will absolutely impress onlookers everywhere.
Mr. YS Ng, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing says, “Last year, Fujitsu made UMPC history with its landmark, feature-rich LifeBook U1010. Continuing in its unique 3-in-1 tablet/notebook/handheld PC tradition, the amazing LifeBook U2010 cements our triumph in this field as it replicates the ingenuity of the U1010 as well as accentuating its lifestyle features with an array of distinctive colours and wireless music on-demand – all while remaining fashionably small and powerfully compact.”
Ever wished you could listen to that favourite collection of songs you painstakingly uploaded from your personal CDs on your drive home? Well, the LifeBook U2010 comes with the technology to make this nice-to-have a reality with its ability to wirelessly connect to any FM radio and its audio output to play aloud your chart-toppers – in this case, straight from your notebook’s music library, using only your home entertainment system or even your car’s FM stereo system! Thanks to its nifty wireless music on-demand technology, the U2010 allows you to take charge of the atmosphere at any party and rev up the tempo to the beat of your play list straight off your UMPC, without the hassle of burning the songs to a CD first – how’s that for loving Mother Nature!
Every experience with the LifeBook U2010 will prove to be an enjoyable one with its high resolution SuperFine 5.6” WXGA 1280 x 800 screen with 300nits brightness. It even has a one-touch Raku Raku zoom button for optimal viewing. Available in Ocean Black, Pink Gold, Cool Silver, Fuchsia Red and Luminous Blue, the petite U2010 is simply a delight to have. And as for the glamazon who hops from one chillout spot to the next in her urban playground, the lightweight (610g) and multimedia-centric LifeBook U2010 accords her centre-stage by entirely meeting her entertainment and communication needs on a portable full-featured Windows Operating System with a built-in 1.3 Mega Pixel camera and digital microphone, making instant messaging and online chatting effortless.
To enhance your experience with this mobile companion, the finger-friendly Microsoft® Origami™ Experience 2.0 application(1) is made available with the LifeBook U2010 for quick touch access to your favourite multimedia programmes. With fully-optimised browsing features, your music, videos, photos, games will all be within easy reach, not to mention updating your blog and taking quick notes will be such a breeze.
The wonders of the LifeBook U2010 extend to busy professionals who need to be constantly on the go, making the long battery life of 8 hours(2) an absolute bonus. With wireless connectivity features and Bluetooth® v2.1 to minimise work downtime for business travelers on the go, it’s simply the perfect mobile companion. Moreover, this tablet-convertible UMPC’s generous storage space (up to 60GB or option of 64GB SSD) means that having big business files on hand for reference is not a problem at all.
In addition, let’s not forget that this petite PC in your palm swivels and turns over to double up as a handheld tablet PC that lets you scribble in short notes for automatic conversion to soft copy text – even when using your fingers! Of course, if time and inclination permits, who’s to stop you from engaging in some electronic sketching with your stylus? And to make sure this mini laptop doesn’t slide out of your grip and derail your artistic efforts, this LifeBook U2010 has a slip-resistant base.
Be it a business professional, glamazon or urbanite, everyone craves a longer battery life. Hence, the LifeBook U2010 comes prepared to meet this demand because it runs on the latest Intel® Centrino® Atom™ processor technology with Intel® Centrino® Atom™ processor Z530 (1.6GHz) and Intel® System Controller Hub, thus endowing it with lower power consumption properties. This means that you are more likely to reach your destination before your battery bails on you. Especially with an extended battery as backup, businessmen will also no doubt be grateful for the longer battery life since it means less hassle with wires since the charger stays in the office even as you don’t.
As with all Fujitsu PCs, this UMPC comes replete with a suite of security features that guarantees the confidentiality of your information. Ensuring that your confidential documents stay private is a 2-level BIOS lock and an Anti-Theft Lock Slot. In addition, the LifeBook U2010 has a Fingerprint Sensor which allows the encryption of sensitive files with a swipe of your pre-registered fingerprint since no password can be more secure than that of your own fingerprint!
