Rev Up the Decibels as Fujitsu’s LifeBook U2010 Navigates the Urban Jungle

  • 16 September, 2008 13:30

Good things come in small packages. Fujitsu’s LifeBook U2010 brings into
being both a wealth of computing functions and technological power, in an agreeably
diminutive form factor for the ultimate in mobility. <br/>
<strong>Sydney Australia</strong> - <strong>September 16, 2008</strong> - Fujitsu
Australia today proudly unveils the LifeBook U2010, the successor of the futuristic
Ultra Mobile PC (UMPC), the LifeBook U1010, which won over many Fujitsu converts
along with a host of worldwide accolades. Mobile professionals, glamazons and
urbanites will be enchanted with the computing delights contained in this polished
powerhouse and they will absolutely impress onlookers everywhere. <br/>
Mr. Ivan Chan, Country Director, Fujitsu PC Australia says says, “Last year,
Fujitsu made UMPC history with its landmark, feature-rich LifeBook U1010. Continuing
in its unique 3-in-1 tablet/notebook/handheld PC tradition, the amazing LifeBook
U2010 cements our triumph in this field as it replicates the ingenuity of the
U1010 as well as accentuating its lifestyle capabilities with a distinctive GPS
navigation feature and wireless music on-demand – all while remaining fashionably
small and powerfully compact.”<br/>
Ever wished you could listen to that favourite collection of songs you painstakingly
uploaded from your personal CDs on your drive home? The LifeBook U2010 comes with
the technology to make this nice-to-have a reality with its ability to wirelessly
connect to any FM radio and its audio output to play aloud your chart-toppers
- in this case, straight from your notebook’s music library, using only
your car’s FM stereo system! Being the handy companion that it is, the LifeBook
U2010 transforms an otherwise tedious trip across the island into an energising
experience as you drive to the jive! <br/>
And, should you decide to take the road less travelled and end up getting lost,
the LifeBook U2010 can easily straighten out your confused journey with its on-the-travel
map displayed on its high resolution SuperFine 5.6” WXGA 1280 x 800 screen
with 300nits brightness, courtesy of its integrated GPS module. Unsurprisingly,
deciding how to get to your client’s new factory on the outskirts of town
will no longer be a tiresome process thanks to the new car navigational might
of this petite LifeBook - which even prompts with directions as you go along!<br/>
Unquestionably, the multimedia-centric LifeBook U2010 accords her centre-stage
by entirely meeting her entertainment and communication needs on a portable full-featured
Windows Vista® Operating System with a built-in 1.3 Mega Pixel camera, making
instant messaging and online chatting effortless.<br/>
Thanks to its nifty wireless music on-demand technology, the LifeBook U2010 allows
you to take charge of the atmosphere at a party and rev up the tempo to the beat
of your play list straight off your UMPC, without the hassle of burning the songs
to a CD first - how’s that for loving Mother Nature!<br/>
The wonders of the LifeBook U2010 extend to busy professionals who need to be
constantly contactable and cannot afford time away from work responsibilities.
Hence, the U2010 makes it a point to provide mobile connectivity via WLAN 11a/g/n,
Bluetooth® v2.1 to minimise work downtime for business travelers on the go,
letting them send and receive emails promptly without any fuss. Moreover, this
tablet-convertible notebook’s generous storage space (up to 100GB or option
of 64GB SSD) means that having big business files on hand for reference is not
a problem at all. <br/>
In addition, let’s not forget that this petite PC in your palm swivels and
turns over to double up as a handheld tablet PC that lets you scribble in short
notes for automatic conversion to soft copy text – even when using your
fingers! Of course, if time and inclination permits, who’s to stop you from
engaging in some electronic sketching with your stylus? And to make sure this
mini laptop doesn’t slide out of your grip and derail your artistic efforts,
this LifeBook U2010 has a slip-resistant base.<br/>
Be it a business professional, glamazon or urbanite, everyone craves a longer
battery life. Hence, the LifeBook U2010 comes prepared to meet this demand because
it runs on the latest Intel® Ultra Mobile platform 2008 with Intel® Centrino®
AtomTM processor (1.6GHz) and Intel® System Controller Hub, thus endowing
it with lower power consumption properties. This means that you are more likely
to reach your destination before your battery bails on you. Businessmen will also
no doubt be grateful for the longer lasting battery since it means less hassle
with wires since the charger stays in the office even as you don’t. <br/>
As with all Fujitsu PCs, this UMPC comes replete with a suite of security features
that guarantees the confidentiality of your information. Ensuring that your confidential
documents stay private is 2-level BIOS lock. In addition, the LifeBook U2010 has
a Fingerprint Sensor which allows the encryption of sensitive files with a swipe
of your pre-registered fingerprint since no password can be more secure than your
own fingerprint! <br/>
Fujitsu remains firmly committed to the promotion of a cleaner environment and
complies with the European Union’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances directive
(RoHS) across its entire range of products. In addition, Fujitsu has established
a set of commitments that goes beyond RoHS requirements, thus allowing it to stay
keenly focused on its customers’ health and well-being as well as to embrace
a healthier environment for all. By adopting a green factory concept and being
committed to the cause of energy-efficient computing, Fujitsu also fights to sustain
the Earth as a sponsor and a member of the Climate Savers Computing Initiative.<br/>

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
