To determine the award winners, GCN's editors and technology analysts reviewed new products from more than 100 companies across a broad range of categories during the FOSE show. Winners were selected based on innovation, usability/applicability to government, relative performance based on specifications, and value.

"The U.S. government is the world's largest purchaser of IT products, and the 2008 GCN Best of FOSE winners have demonstrated a very high degree of focus on developing innovative technologies to meet the evolving needs of this market," said Wyatt Kash, Editor-in-Chief, GCN. "FOSE continues to be a showcase for the latest in technology offerings for the government -- and in particular, products that meet the government's demanding requirements for scale and security."

"The LifeBook P8010 notebook's unique LED-based display design and exceptional engineering enable Fujitsu to deliver a full-sized screen in a sub three-pound system, and do so while maintaining the style that appeals to the highly mobile professionals," said Paul Moore, senior director of mobile product marketing, Fujitsu Computer Systems.
