Fujitsu unveils new additions – LIFEBOOK T731 and TH701 to the signature tablet PC line

Fujitsu’s latest quality tablet PCs allow for greater content creation with dual-touch functionalities, equipped with the 2nd Generation Intel processor for superior performance, security and long battery lifespan.


Sydney Australia, September 12, 2011 – Fujitsu, the world’s leading Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Company, today introduced the dual-touch, multi-finger gesture enabled tablet PCs, the LIFEBOOK T731 and TH701 to the signature line of products tailored for both the corporate professionals and mainstream users respectively.

The new T731 is a powerful, professional tablet that comes with the Intel® vPro™ technology, optional Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and other crucial security features for the most secured and manageable mobile business platforms. Its black metallic profile exudes a confident and self-assured image for professionals. The TH701 comes in a sleek and glossy exterior with an embossed Fujitsu Infinity logo and is perfect for the mainstream user who is seeking affordability, performance and flexibility in a compact form factor.

“We are proud to unveil our latest additions to our portfolio, where most tablet PC devices in the market are built for content consumption and viewing, the T731 and TH701 are superior with their content creation abilities. Fujitsu has a proven track record to deliver quality and reliable products that cater to different needs and demands of users for everyday use, which include functionality, portability, durability and productivity, and both the LIFEBOOK T731 and TH701 are no different,” said Mr Bert Noah, Country Manager, Fujitsu PC Australia.

Superior Performance with Impressive Wireless Connectivity
The T731 and TH701 are fitted with a bi-directional, 12.1-inch WXGA TFT display with dual digitizer and are equipped with the new Intel mobile Intel® 6 Series Chipsets to enable users to enjoy improved content creation and performance boost, thanks to the cutting edge Intel Boost 2.0 and Intel Hyper-Threading technologies. Both models boast of the new Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6205 technology to support Intel® Wireless Display, allowing users to wirelessly connect the tablet PCs to a large screen High Definition (HD) TV for sharing of photos and YouTube videos with family and friends, or presentations in a corporate setting with the use of a small portable adapter. -

Boasting remarkable HSPA+ connectivity, users will be able to stay connected anywhere with the 3.5G connection by slotting in a 3G SIM card.

Tablet PCs built for Security and Reliability
Both machines are equipped with sophisticated security features including the Fujitsu 3D Shock Sensor, Fingerprint Sensor and Fujitsu LIFEBOOK Lock. The T731 is further enabled with the Intel® vPro™ Technology and optional Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for enhanced data protection.
The built-in Fujitsu patented ventilation system promotes optimised performance and prolonged operational life with its enhanced cooling system and removable dust filter.

Improved Flexibility for Everyday Usage
Users can enjoy great flexibility with the three-way inputs: TYPE on the Spill-resistant Keyboard; WRITE with the Digital Stylus Pen; or TOUCH with 5-Fingers gestures on the intelligent Touch Screen. The Microsoft Touch Pack for Windows 7, an introductory collection of six games and programs, is included, to provide a multi-touch experience on the tablet PC. For example, the Microsoft Surface Globe program immerses users in a 2D or 3D experience of the earth.

Peripheral connectivity on T731 and TH701 is further expanded with the new USB 3.0 Port, which allows higher speed data transfers (480Mbps). The additional Any-time charging feature allows users charge other peripherals without switching on the tablet PC.

The T731 and TH701 are equipped with the hot swappable bay, which allows users to fit in a second battery or weight saver, depending on their different needs. This also enables companies to lower the total cost of ownership as users can share the accessories. The T731 also come with the optional Port Replicator, which allows immediate plug-in for office use and greater convenience.  

Enhanced Battery Lifespan for Extended Usage
Tested under the stringent industrial MobileMark 2007 Productivity Workload standards, the T731 and TH701 surpass expectations with an excellent battery life of 6 hours 50 minutes with a standard battery and up to 11 hours with an additional bay battery. This is made possible by a clever feature which automatically adjusts brightness of the screen to a working environment with an ambient light sensor which also manages the power consumption of the LCD panel, enhancing the battery life.

Green Technology
Committed to the environment, the T731 and TH701 feature the optional 0-watt AC adaptor which is unique to Fujitsu. Normal adaptors consume power even with the notebook switched off or put to hibernation mode. With this feature, the Fujitsu 0-watt AC adaptor consumes up to 99% less power as compared to a normal AC adaptor when on standby.

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.
