Fujitsu intros STYLISTIC Q550, an executive class tablet PC
Joining the tablet game is Fujitsu and its new STYLISTIC Q550 executive class slate PC. It’s not consumer-grade, this tablet is designed for high-security requirements for enterprise mobile computing and seamless integration to existing ICT infrastructures.
The STYLISTIC Q550 is a 10.1-inch tablet that is powered by the upcoming “Oak Trail” Intel Atom processor. It runs on Windows 7 OS which is ideal for enterprise use for maximum interoperability with business environments. It has a multi-touch interface along with a pressure-sensitive pen input and it will automatically recognize and adjust if you’re using the stylus or the touch interface.
It also features the T9 and XT9 predictive text technology developed by Nuance Mobile which enables faster input and superior word completion accuracy. With an integrated keyboard, users can seamlessly switch back and forth between tracing and tapping at any time, giving them more flexibility when composing messages on their devices. T9 Write is a new class of handwriting input solutions that provide an exceptional user experience on any touch screen device.
Connectivity includes standard WLAN and Bluetooth with configurations for optional mobile broadband 3G and WAN. The Q550 can also be incorporated with various security technologies such as fingerprint authentication, smart card reader, embedded security chip, and encrypted SSD that would enable the development of even more robust security systems, an important feature for enterprise customers.
We don’t really know how it handles the unwieldy Windows 7 but for sure executives will have a use for this when they decide to switch from laptop to a tablet.
