Earlier this month Fujitsu kicked off their Oak Trail based Lifebook TH series tablet hybrid (slider keyboard) over in Japan. We’ve seen the renders but now we’re getting a first hand feel for it. We couldn’t get multi-touch working, it felt slow (no surprise with a 4200RPM HDD) and the keyboard is as cramped as we expected it to be.
There’s only one model available at the moment (TH40/D) and as we’ve seen it sports a 10.1″ 1024 x 600 display (bog standard TFT) with capacitive touch, Atom Z670 chip (1.5GHz single-core), 1GB of RAM, 120GB 4200RPM HDD (no SSD), Bluetooth 3.0+HS, 0.3MP camera, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 23Wh battery good for up to 6 hours and Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit. Ports include HDMI, 4-in-1 card reader, volume, headphone and 2x USB 2.0. Weighs 1.1kg and is 17.4mm thick.
Pricing on announcement day was a whopping 79,800 yen (maybe around $600). No word on pricing or a release date outside of Japan just yet.
