Computer manufacturer Fujitsu is showing its full support for Microsoft’s touch-interface, as the company unveiled six new touch-enabled devices for Windows 8.1 on Tuesday. Those six devices will make up what the company is calling its ‘All New in Touch’ portfolio introducing four new devices to the Lifebook family (two notebooks and two convertibles) along with a pair of business-oriented tablets.
Fujitsu introduced two new additions to the Lifebook notebook family with the 14-inch U904 Ultrabook and the 13.3-inch S904. The pair will offer high-quality touch-enabled displays as the U904 boasts an impressive 3200 x 1800 IGZO display, while S904 features an equally impressive 2560 x 1440 resolution panel.
Each Lifebook will offer a number of configuration options including up to Core i7 fourth generation Haswell processors, 512GB SSDs and LTE radios. The U904 also offers an incredibly slim 15.5mm form factor, which according Fujitsu makes the device the world’s thinnest 14-inch ultrabook. The S904 will also feature a modular bay design; allowing users to swap out a number of different components including an optical drive, an extra storage drive or a second battery, which will reportedly boost continuous runtime to an impressive 24 hours.
Fujitsu also unveiled two new convertible Lifebooks the T904 and the T734. Both convertibles will utilize a rotating display hinge design to transform into tablet mode. Fujitsu has yet to announce the hardware options for its high-end 13.3-inch T904, but the device will feature a stylus friendly 2560 x 1440 IGZO display. The 12.5-inch T734 will in turn feature a standard resolution 1366 x 758 stylus-friendly display, along with configuration options up to a fourth-generation i7 processor, as well as a number of different HDD and SSD internal storage devices and data radio options. Similar to the Lifebook S904 the 12.5-inch convertible also offers modular bay design, allowing users to opt for an optical drive or a second storage device.
Fujitsu has yet to announce pricing or any specific release dates, though the company did note that they expect the Lifebook U904 will be released as early as this month. The company also projects that the Lifebook S904 will be released in November, while both T models will be expected in January of next year.
