Fujitsu's LifeBook U810 features a swiveling 5.6" display and a QWERTY keyboard

There were many concerns raised in DailyTech's previous article on the HTC Shift regarding the pricing for UMPCs. Many felt that device manufacturers were pricing their devices out of the market of mainstream buyers.

According to many sources, the HTC Shift will have a price tag of $1,500 USD, while Samsung's Q1 Ultra EL is sitting at a more palatable price tag of $799 USD from a few retailers. Fujitsu is looking to raise a few eyebrows of its own with a new feature-filled UMPC priced at $999 USD.

The LifeBook U810 (known as the LifeBook U1010 or FMV-U8240 in other markets) packs quite a few features into its 1.56 pound frame. The device features a 5.6" 1024x600 LCD, 800MHz Intel A110 processor, 1GB DDR2 memory, 40GB hard drive, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, Atheros Super AG 802.11a/b/g wireless, 10/100 NIC, USB 2.0 port, VGA port, CompactFlash slot, Secure Digital slot, QWERTY keyboard and a Fingerprint sensor.

The aforementioned 5.6" display screen can be used in a traditional "laptop" view for easy thumb-typing with the QWERTY keyboard or swiveled 180 degrees and laid flat atop of the keyboard to use the U810 in "slate" mode. For those that ink a lot in slate mode, GottaBeMobile’s Hugo Ortega is happy to report that the screen requires a firm push to register input therefore making vectoring while inking a non-issue. There also two LEDs mounted near the base of the swivel mount to light the keyboard in low-light conditions -- nice touch.

Fujitsu says that its LifeBook U810 has a battery life of 5.5 hours via its 4-cell, 5200mAh lithium-ion battery.

The LifeBook U810 is scheduled to hit stores in September and will be available with either Windows Vista Premium, or Windows XP Tablet PC Edition. For more opinions and real-world shots of the LifeBook U810, check out Notebook Review’s first look at the device.
