Fujitsu's twist-happy UMPC got an official spec makeover today. The FMV-U8240 (which will be the company's first and smallest Tablet/UMPC) will come with a 1,024 x 600 5.6-inch display and weigh a mere 1.2 pounds. Wi-Fi will be built in and you'll get from 512MB to 1GB of memory (along with a 20GB HDD). For power there will be an 800MHz Intel A110 CPU. Price-wise, you're looking at around $1,200 for the WinXP version and $1,300 for the Vista Business version. Lower the price and give it an SSD option and we'd be happy.
Just a price drop is all I'd like to see. Something closer to the Kojinsha. I think the form is better as is likely the speed, but I think the UMPC price inflation from the initial projected 'under a grand' is getting old. Now just the lowest of the low sneak in below 1000. I'm fine with 40 gigs or less. If I need to carry every picture I've ever taken and my whole music collection with me where every I'd go I'd buy some external drive. But I'd be concerned with no touchpad or track point. I loved the little red nipple on the my old thinkpad. Those don't take up too much space.
