Fujitsu's P-1000 Series Touch Screen Notebook


When Fujitsu first introduced the Biblo Loox, Japanese consumers went crazy. When Fujitsu Americanized the Loox and it became the Lifebook P series, American consumers went crazy, and the notebook ended up winning best of show at Comdex 2001. Following in the footsteps of past successes, Fujitsu have today released the Lifebook P-1000 series, a subnotebook with a signature touch sensitive display.

Powered by a 700MHz TM5500 Crusoe processor with 256KB on-die L2 cache and a 133MHz FSB, the little 2.2lb ultra subnotebook can last for up to 4.5 hours with a standard battery. The P-1000 series, which comes in the P-1035 and P-1032 models has a static 128MB of memory (not upgradable), an 8.9" wide-format XGA TFT with touch screen capabilities powered by a 4Mb ATI Rage Mobility-M graphics chipset.

With an internal 20GB hard drive, the P-1000 series touch sensitive subnotebooks are classed as "one spindle." The subnotebooks come with an external USB floppy disk, and an optional external PCMCIA CD-ROM drive can be acquired.

Rounding out the other features of this utterly tiny 2.2lb subnotebook are the standard assortment of headphone audio jacks, integrated speakers, integral 56K modem and 10/100 NIC, a very cool 802.11b wireless LAN, two USB ports, a mini-VGA jack, and one type II PCMCIA port.

The units can last upto 9 hours on the extended life batteries which boost the weight up to 2.5lbs and they come preloaded with Windows XP home edition. Pricing is expected to be about $1499USD.

It's is interesting to see that Fujitsu is primarily targeting the P-1000 series at industry markets, and while it is equipped with the new TM5500 processor, we're a bit surprised the faster TM5800 wasn't chosen. While lap tops of any size are not the easiest to handle by standing workers, the P-1000 does seem to be a stab in the direction of FIC's AquaPad, which may see its widest adoption with industry as a portable terminal. The Fujitsu P-1000 ups the ante and offers not only a touch sensitive screen, but keyboard, hard drive and other notebook-like qualities. If the very sexy Fujitsu Lifebook P series is any indication, the P-1000 is going to be one sleek looking subnotebook, regardless.

 

Fujitsu Unveils World's Smallest, Touch Screen Notebook Starting at $1,499

SANTA CLARA, Calif.- February 26, 2001 — Fujitsu PC Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fujitsu Limited, today announced the release of its newest addition to the LifeBook notebook line with the LifeBook P-1000. The LifeBook P-1000 is the smallest touch screen notebook PC available and is designed to support special-purpose applications, such as healthcare, and sales and field-force automation. To further enable these high-mobility users, the LifeBook P-1000 offers outstanding battery life and wireless LAN capability.

The LifeBook P-1000 increases customer choice by offering a full Windows PC-based solution at pricing comparable to Windows CE-based notebooks. With the LifeBook P-1000 and the LifeBook B Series, Fujitsu now offers two touch screen-enabled notebook PCs to meet diverse customer pricing and functionality requirements. The LifeBook P-1000 is a single-spindle design that measures only 9.1 inches wide by 6.2 inches deep by 1.36 inches high and weighs only 2.2 pounds.

Despite its compact form factor the LifeBook P-1000 features an 8.9-inch wide-format XGA TFT display with a touch screen. This combination of a 15:9 aspect ratio display and Fujitsu's touch screen technology provides users with the maximum viewing area and a unique method to navigate and to easily access and update data. Increasing its functionality, Fujitsu's new ultra-light LifeBook P-1000 will be one of the first notebooks in its class to offer integrated WiFi™-compliant wireless LAN capabilities (IEEE 802.11b), allowing users to stay connected in the field and office. Users have the option of a built-in modem and wireless LAN option or built-in modem and integrated 10/100 base-Tx Ethernet.

"The new LifeBook P-1000 reaffirms Fujitsu's commitment to our customers who require touch screen capability for their productivity applications," said Sara Nelson, vice president of marketing for Fujitsu PC Corporation. "More companies than ever before are enlisting the services of technology to automate their everyday business activities. We are confident this new addition will provide the functionality and portability required in this consistently expanding environment."

Like Fujitsu's LifeBook P Series P-2000, the LifeBook P-1000 also incorporates the services of a Crusoe processor from Transmeta Corporation.(The LifeBook P-2000, winner of COMDEX Fall 2001's Best Notebook and Best of Show awards, is the world's smallest, full-featured notebook PC incorporating a built-in combo drive.) The notebook is powered by Transmeta's 700MHz Crusoe TM5500 Processor with LongRun Power Management specifically designed to save energy while still providing full processing power in battery-mode. The LifeBook P-1000 offers users two different battery configurations, including the standard main Lithium ion battery for up to 4.5 hours of battery life or high-capacity main battery increasing computing life up to 9 hours.

The compact single-spindle design features a 20GB hard drive, 128MB SDRAM, ATI RAGE Mobility-M video controller with 4MB integrated video memory, and comes with an external USB floppy drive standard.

Fujitsu's newest notebook is available with either Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, Windows XP Professional or Windows 2000 Professional pre-installed to provide users with a choice of operating systems that best fits their individual computing requirements.

The LifeBook P-1000 will ship at the end of February in two recommended configurations and is also available via Fujitsu's Configure To Order (CTO) program. With an estimated street price starting at $1,499, the mini-notebook will be initially offered through Fujitsu's reseller channel.
