SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Fujitsu today launches three 2 in 1 tablets for business users. The new Fujitsu Tablet LIFEBOOK® P727, the first 360-degree foldable 2 in 1 device, delivers a new degree of flexibility in mobile business. It solves the tablet or PC dilemma by combining the best of both worlds and creating a seamless 'anytime, anywhere' user experience across all areas of digital working.
The LIFEBOOK P727 is a lightweight, slimline, 12.5-inch screen size 2 in 1 device. It converts instantly from a clamshell notebook into a powerful tablet when the keyboard is not needed, putting an end to the debate over whether to carry a traditional notebook, a tablet, or both, while traveling. The LIFEBOOK P727 can be used in four different working modes – classic clamshell, desktop, tablet and tent, giving users the freedom of choice based on individual preference – and supports multiple forms of input, including touchscreen, digitizer pen and keyboard. The 360-degree hinge means the keyboard can be folded over so it disappears entirely, folding flush behind the screen. Optional 4G/LTE connectivity and up to 10 hours of battery life make the LIFEBOOK P727 a truly mobile, work-anywhere device.
Fujitsu is also introducing the FUJITSU Tablet LIFEBOOK T937, the latest in the long line of Fujitsu convertible tablets, where the screen can rotate 360 degrees from a central pivot point. Weighing only 1.3kg, its thin and flexible design allows users to switch from 13.3-inch Ultrabook to tablet mode, enabling dynamic work styles both in the office and on the move. The T937 features a bridge battery that allows users to swap out the main battery without having to power down first.
A third new model, the new 13.3-inch STYLISTIC Q737 tablet is the next generation of the popular Fujitsu STYLISTIC® Q Series 2 in 1 devices, a powerful tablet PC with a detachable keyboard docking station. Combining a full-productivity notebook with the convenience of a tablet, the STYLISTIC Q737 provides new levels of performance and functionality, making it perfect for vertical industries.
With its new line-up of high-end 2 in 1 devices, Fujitsu offers business users more flexibility and agility and responds to the increased business needs of the digital workplace, catering to business travelers who work on the move, collaborate in teams and use their devices in multiple ways. According to a recent study by IDC1, tablets will play a key part in digital transformation, with hybrid and 2 in 1 devices meeting new productivity needs as well as enabling new usage scenarios. The study revealed that tablets are part of the mobile strategy of 60 percent of surveyed companies. Over two-thirds of respondents were evaluating or planning to purchase a tablet in the short term. Sectors such as education, hospitality, government, and transport ranked tablets among their top three priorities.
Marta Fiorentini, Research Manager at analyst firm IDC, commented: "Tablets are on the rise in enterprises. In a recent IDC survey2, CIOs told us that in 2017 they are prioritizing investment in tablet PCs even ahead of cloud computing. In terms of IT spending priorities, CIOs today rank tablets as the highest priority after the three infrastructure elements of storage, servers, and notebook PCs. Tablets appeal to enterprises because they deliver efficiency while ensuring employee flexibility and productivity. That's why the majority of CIOs consider that investing in 2 in 1 tablet devices is a spending priority."
Kevin Wrenn, Senior Vice President, PC Business at Fujitsu America, Inc., says: "As today's workforce becomes more mobile across many industries, the tools workers use must be more portable and powerful than ever. At the same time, organizations have never been as budget conscious as they are now. Fujitsu believes in helping shape the future alongside our customers, and our new lineup of 2 in 1 tablets is an excellent example of our dedication to achieving this goal. Not only does the 2 in 1 form factor enable usage in a wide range of scenarios, the new devices are also rich enough in features and functionality to replace traditional notebooks in many cases. That's the kind of true value that our customers have come to expect from Fujitsu, and we're proud to keep delivering products and services that live up to our reputation."
All three 2 in 1 tablets include the latest generation of Intel processors3, boasting more performance and better battery runtime, and ultimately boosting productivity. They are backed up by enterprise-grade security, including touch free PalmSecure authentication technology4.
