Fujitsu announced the Stylistic ST5111 and ST5112 Tablet PCs, the first slates on the market to offer the latest Intel Core Duo Mobile Technology, delivering maximum power, performance, and battery life.

Ideal for project-based applications, as well as for mobile professionals in markets including healthcare and field and sales force automation, the 3.5-pound Microsoft Windows-Vista capable thin and light slates save time and reduce data-entry errors.

With a choice of state-of-the-art display technologies, text and graphics can be easily seen under various lighting conditions. The Stylistic ST5111 Tablet PC features a 10.4-inch screen, the largest front-lit reflective display in the industry. The XGA TFT display provides outstanding outdoor viewing and is optimized for direct sunlight conditions. The Stylistic ST5112 Tablet PC offers a 12.1-inch bright transmissive indoor/outdoor XGA display with greater than 160┬░ wide viewing angles, allowing for consistent image quality at varying angles.

Less than an inch thick, the durable and reliable Stylistic ST5100 Tablet PCs are fortified with a high-quality magnesium-alloy lower housing. Data is protected with the new Fujitsu Shock Sensor utility, an accelerometer-based hard disk drive protection system that retracts the hard drive head if a sudden movement or vibration is detected, reducing the possibility of data loss. The sensor can also be set to password-lock the system if it is touched, preventing the unauthorized access of data.

Stylistic ST5100 Tablet PCs are packed with security features including embedded Trusted Platform Module (TPM), a dedicated Smart Card slot, Fujitsu Security Application Panel, two-level hard drive password, BIOS-enabled Computrace/LoJack theft recovery service support, and a universal lock slot.

Intuitive one-touch application buttons, pen and inking capabilities, and a new pen designed with an eraser top ensure maximize productivity. Long workdays are easily accommodated with a standard 6-cell standard battery delivering up to 6 hours1 of computing time or a high-capacity 9-cell battery for up to 9 hours1 of battery life.

With a flexible form factor, Stylistic ST5100 Tablet PCs can be used like a notepad with minimal weight and bulk, or a keyboard can be added for a more familiar notebook feel. With the optional tablet dock, the system can be transformed into a complete desktop solution. The dock supports both portrait and landscape modes, immediate undocking for grab-and-go computing without rebooting, multiple plug-and-play ports, plus an option for modular optical drives.

Connecting to the office network or the Internet is easy with an integrated Gigabit Ethernet modem. Or chose to connect wirelessly with either the Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG or Atheros Super AG (802.11a/b/g) wireless LAN. A diversity antenna provides excellent data transfer rates.
