Fujitsu Lifebook TH40/D Sliding-Tilting Tablet Launch Delayed Indefinitely

June 25, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

If you have been waiting to have your hands on Fujitsu’s Lifebook TH40/D sliding-tilting tablet, we have some disappointing news for you. The new tablet has been indefinitely postponed due to unspecified developmental delays. The Lifebook TH40/D first saw light last May, when the company demonstrated the touchscreen tablet with a 10.1-inch 1,024 x 600 display and a full QWERTY keyboard with a built-in optical trackpad.

It runs Windows 7 and is powered by Intel’s 1.5GHz Oak Trail Atom Z670 paired with 1GB of non-expandable DDR2 RAM and a 120GB 4200rpm hard drive.

Apart from these, other features include 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, a couple of USB 2.0 ports, HDMI-out, an SD card slot and a six-hour battery life.

Though we have been hearing that the Atom Z670 chip has found its place inside 10 of the company’s models as well as inside a Samsung Sliding PC 7, it is yet to be seen in the market. It might be because this that the tablet is being delayed.

The delay could be because the sliding mechanism, with the potentially complicated tilting and sliding, has the potential to cause headaches. Fujitsu isn’t saying anything and we don’t know when exactly the tablet, if at it will, would hit the market.
