Fujitsu’s Lifebook U2010 (FMV-Biblo Loox U) Hands-on
We’re just back from a Fujitsu press conference where we were invited over by their nice team that introduced several laptops, notebooks, and UMPCs.
Let’s talk about Fujitsu’s latest UMPC, the Lifebook U2010 (in Japan, FMV-BIBLO Loox U), introduced last week at AkihabaraNews (here). It’s a stylish, robust, and light UMPC. The Lifebook has all the connectivity you need, as well as storage capacity. On the downside, it took the Loox U around a minute and a half to boot Windows Vista, and can hold only 1GB of RAM…..
As for specifications, our UMPC comes with an Intel Atom Z530 processor (1.60GHz), a 5.6 LED back lighted touchscreen in WXGA resolution (1280×800), 1GB of DDR2 (max), 60GB of HDD (a 64GB SSD drive is also available), WiFi a/b/g, Bluetooth, SD/CF card slot, 1.3Mpix camera, a standard battery delivering a life span of 5.3 hours. A 4 cell battery providing 11.1 hours of runtime can also be used.
You’ll have a choice between Cool Silver, Fushia Pink, and Black and a special cover for the Japanese market. Fujitsu will release this new UMPC August 29th
We asked Fujitsu when they’ll release a notebook like Asus’ EeePC or the MSI Wind. Apparently, a new notebook should be available next fall with an Intel Atom processor (probably the same as the LifeBook U2010), Windows XP, but without a SSD drive.
