Fujitsu announced 3 new tablets for the 2018 model year in Japan yesterday, but despite their mostly normal looks, these of Fujitsu’s tablets are enterprise tablets. And while Fujitsu have some Android tablets too, the first new tablets for 2018 are all large Windows tablets.
Fujitsu Arrows Tab Q738/SE (for the education market) and Fujitsu Arrows Tab Q738/SB (for the enterprise market).
These are 13.3-inch Windows tablets that have reduced their weight by 20% since last year, and will also features 8th gen. Intel Core i5 processors, Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, 4GB of RAM, options of 128GB and 256GB SSD storage, and optional 4G LTE.
It will be released in February, with a price from 153,000 JPY in Japan.
Fujitsu Arrows Tab V727/S
This is Fujitsu’s Surface Pro alternative, which also has the A4 proportion format. It has Windows 10 Pro, options of either Intel Core m3-7Y30 or Intel Core i77Y75, options of 4GB or 8GB LPDDR3 RAM and 128GB or 256GB SSD storage, 1920 x 1280 resolution, a built-in kickstand swappable batteries, 3 USB ports, micro-HDMI port, optional fingerprint reader or smartcard, and integrated digitizer pen that is charged from the body. And the pen charges fast, with a 90 minutes use time from a 15 second charge!
Fujitsu says that Fujitsu Arrows Tab V727/S will be released in the beginning of March for 178,200 JPY in Japan, without suggesting what the prices will be in the US.
Fujitsu tablets are available in the US too, but not from your local Walmart, since these are mainly enterprise tablets, though a few people will buy them for personal use too. Some of these tablets are waterproof and Fujitsu even has a 6-inch Windows 10 tablet, so it’s a bit of a loss that they haven’t got a full presence on the consumer market.
