Fujitsu Announces Availability of Fujitsu LifeBook U810 Mini Convertible and LifeBook T2010 Ultra-Portable Convertible Notebooks With Fastest Wireless Data Connection in North America

Fujitsu First to Offer Built-In AT&T BroadbandConnect High Speed Packet Access

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - May 1, 2008) - Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation today announced the availability of the LifeBook(R) U810 mini and the ultra-portable LifeBook T2010 convertible notebooks with built-in access to the AT&T BroadbandConnect High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) network, delivering the highest speed data wireless GSM WAN connection available in North America.

The LifeBook U810 mini, the world's smallest convertible notebook* at 1.56 pounds with a 5.6-inch LED backlit touch-screen display, and the 3.5-pound LifeBook T2010 convertible notebook, with a 12.1-inch LED backlit display, are the first notebooks in North America to offer a built-in wireless modem certified to access AT&T's third-generation (3G) High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) BroadbandConnect wireless network. This network provides enhanced 3G performance, with typical download speeds between 600 Kbps and 1,400 Kbps and typical upload speeds between 500 Kbps and 800 Kbps. The faster download speeds provide an optimal wireless Internet-browsing experience, and the faster upload speeds will enhance users' ability to send large files, such as e-mail messages with attachments, videos, photos or business documents.

"Fujitsu has integrated HSUPA access into the LifeBook U810 mini and LifeBook T2010 convertible notebooks to enable users to take advantage of flexibility and productivity gains that are gained through unparalleled data connectivity," said Paul Moore, senior director of mobile product marketing, Fujitsu Computer Systems. "The greater connection speeds integrated into the highly adaptable and highly reliable Fujitsu solutions allow mobile workers to be far more productive regardless of where their travels take them, including international travel through various AT&T roaming agreements."

AT&T has the broadest international wireless footprint of any U.S. carrier. Customers can use the LifeBook 810 mini and LifeBook T2010 convertible notebooks on 3G or EDGE/GPRS networks in more than 145 countries -- including Japan and South Korea. AT&T also gives its customers the ability to use their wireless phones to make or take a phone call in more than 200 countries.

Capable of running all standard applications, the LifeBook U810 mini notebook functions like a traditional notebook with an ultra-slim QWERTY keyboard, or by swiveling the WSVGA Crystal View illuminated screen, as a handheld tablet PC with a touch screen for finger or pen input. The mini convertible, equipped with the energy efficient Ultra Low Power Intel(R) A110 processor, is available with Windows Vista(R) Home Premium, Windows Vista(R) Business, or Windows(R) XP Tablet PC Edition 2005. The system's standard four-cell battery delivers up to 5.5 hours of computing time.(1)

The LifeBook T2010 notebook, the lightest convertible on the market, comes equipped with a slim 1.3-inch chassis and a 12.1-inch WXGA indoor/outdoor LED back-lit display with a bi-directional swivel. The pen-enabled convertible boasts extraordinary battery life of up to 11 hours(1) with the extended battery option, or 9 hours(1) with a standard battery. The LifeBook T2010 notebook, equipped with Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo 7600 ultra low voltage processor, offers a choice of Windows Vista(R) Business or Windows(R) XP Tablet PC Edition 2005.
