Lifebook U810 Tablet

 

Fujitsu's LifeBook U810--an ultrasmall convertible tablet and laptop--is a 1.5-pound, palm-size Windows Vista system whose lilliputian dimensions are both its strength and its weakness. By trying to cram in most of the features you'd expect in a larger...

Easy to hold in your hands Nifty swiveling design

Sluggish performance Small size makes it hard to use

So who is the target audience for the LifeBook U810? People with Superman vision, really small fingers, and plenty of patience

Fujitsu Lifebook U810

 

Handheld PCs will eventually dominate the world. Is that an absurd claim? Well, maybe notthough it's not likely in the near future, or at their current prices. Yet despite a market that's been particularly tough on Ultra Mobile PCs (UMPCs), more and...

Convertible tablet. SD and CF card slots. Weighs only 1.5 pounds. Decent processing performance. Good battery life. USB port is fully powered for external devices

No cellular broadband. A little bulky for a handheld

A convertible tablet about the size of your palm, it can do a lot more than some of the other UMPCs in the market, though it lacks one crucial thing: cellular broadband.

Did Frodo Lose His Notebook?

 

For this flawed masterpiece, a shock-haired mad scientist trained his shrink ray on a tablet PC, then ran shrieking from his creation when he tried to run HD

Small. Like Hobbit sized small. Decent battery life. Priced low. Pretty machine with smart construction. Full QWERTY keyboard fits perfectly into an extremely small area

Keyboard size comes at a cost: function mapping choices are practically demented in their layout. Fat battery. Not quite pocketable. Screen feels small in its wide bezel. Windows Vista Business? Gag

Fujitsu LifeBook U810 Tablet PC First Look Review (Video)

 

The U810 is a solid little tablet. The chassis is sturdy and I didn't notice any flex. The mini-keyboard has a little flex, which reminded me of the LifeBook T2010. After a while though you wouldn't want to type on this keyboard because it really is...

Fujitsu LifeBook U810

 

The Fujitsu LifeBook U810 skirts the line between an ultraportable convertible tablet and a UMPC (that's ultramobile PC, if you haven't been paying attention). We've always liked UMPCs in theory--shrinking a laptop down in size to something you can...

Best ultramobile PC keyboard yet; tablet functionality provides another input option; access to pointing stick even when the tablet lid is closed; inexpensive for a UMPC.

Too many keys double-mapped; no mobile broadband (yet); thick screen bezel makes display look even smaller; limited ports and connections.

Ambitious but flawed, the Fujitsu LifeBook U810 has more of a traditional laptop design than other UMPCs, but the otherwise excellent keyboard is marred by the loss of several important keys.

Fujitsu LifeBook U810 Tablet PC

 

Fujitsu offers the first convertible clamshell UMPC at an aggressive price.

Relatively affordable ; Good screen quality ; Lots of hardware controls ; Long battery life

No mobile broadband yet ; Awkward keyboard ; Low performance scores ; Tiresome mouse navigation

Fujitsu Lifebook U810 (WWAN)

 

Including a keyboard that's even 66 percent of full size is commendable on such a tiny unit, but attempting to touch-type on it takes effort. Your best bet is to cradle it and use your thumbs. The mouse buttons and pointing stick, located beside the...

Equipped with an HSDPA cellular modem. Travel friendly. SD and CF card slots. Convertible tablet. Good battery life

Awkward looking. Very cramped keyboard. Cellular modem pushes this device over $1,000

The Fujitsu U810 (WWAN) ultramobile PC is more accessible to the Web now that it comes with an HSDPA modem, though the $200 up-sell might turn customers off.

Review: Fujitsu LifeBook U810

 

The Fujitsu LifeBook U810 mini notebook is part of the second wave of UMPCs running on Intel's new energy-efficient Ultra Mobile Platform. The U810, first introduced as the FMV-U8240 (and also known as the U1010 and LOOX U in other regions), launched...

In the midst of the current Asus Eee PC frenzy, where affordable notebook computers with 7-inch screens are welcomed into new homes at a rate possibly never attainable by UMPCs, is the Fujitsu LifeBook U810 as relevant today as it was when it first...

Fujitsu LifeBook U810 Laptop

 

The tiny Fujitsu LifeBook U810 UMPC is sure to draw envious stares from onlookers, but its painfully slow performance will turn them—and you—away.

Reasonably priced; functions as notebook, tablet; built-in Webcam, fingerprint sensor; keyboard perfect size for thumb typing

Slow performance; few ports; lacks integrated cellular modem; choppy video playback, capture; small hard drive; memory not upgradable

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how
