Fujitsu U1010 UMPC: Life Partner for U

That has to be one of the cheesiest taglines ever, but that’s exactly how Fujitsu is marketing its new U1010 UMPC. They also say that the U1010 is the world’s smallest convertible. It’s certainly smaller than a Mustang.

On the one hand, you can flip up the 5.6-inch color display to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard, using the UMPC like how you would a regular laptop. On the other hand, you can swivel said display and utilize the Fujitsu U1010 like a tiny tablet PC. Based on the Intel Mobile Platform 2007, the tiny computing solution is 26.5mm thick and weighs 580 grams.

It won’t replace your PC any time soon, but it’s got some of the hottest features on a UMPC today, including a fingerprint recognition sensor, a backlit (?) keyboard, and the Trusted Platform Module (TPM). Retail price in Korea is 1,290,000 KRW, which works out to about US$1,384.
