Fujitsu 7-Inch Tablet Getting Ready; Android Honeycomb Slate Set for Q3 Arrival

May 19, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

In the over crowded slate market, here comes yet another adding its charm. Barely a week after the company announced their LifeBook TH40/D tablet PC in Japan, the US and Europe, Fujitsu has plans to bring out another tablet. However, unlike the TH40/D, which is more of a business device, the new one is said to be aimed at the general consumers.

Well, scarce details of the proposed device are available as yet. However, we believe that the device would be rather small as compared to the last announced device and would come with a 7-inch screen.

It would be running Android 3.1 Honeycomb; thus the Japanese brand is also joining the Android group. It is not confirmed whether the new device would feature stylus support and keyboard of the TH40/D.

The new upcoming tablet is also believed to be convertible, as mentioned above, but the existence of this feature too is quite unsure. Least possibilities are there for the device to become the tiny convertible version of the already announced Windows-based tablet.

The company makes a promise that the device will come at an affordable $350 price point. To be more precise, the pricing would be in such a way that it would be offered for about NT$10,000-20,000 (US$347-694).

We also hear the company will outsource production of the device to Taiwan-based ODMs, to offer the above said price level. The device would most probably hit the market in the third quarter of this year.
