Fujitsu-Siemens Quietly Intros Stylistic St6012 Tablet Pc
Now that we think about it, itís been a hot minute since weíve seen a new Stylistic tablet flow from the doors of Fujitsu-Siemens, but it has finally hit back with a new unit to keep the family alive.
The Centrino 2-based ST6012 has been revealed on the firmís website without much fanfare, though the specs are decent enough. Weíre talking a Core 2 Duo SU9400 ULV processor, 12.1-inch WXGA (1,280 x 800) non-glare display, up to 4GB of RAM, optional WiFi / WWAN / Bluetooth modules, your choice of a 64GB SSD / 120GB to 320GB HDD, a built-in multicard reader, biometric scanner and a rather industrial motif. Mumís the word on a price and release, and quite honestly, we canít imagine those details ever being blasted from the rooftops.
Fujitsu-Seimens says the pre-installed OS is a "TwinLoad" of Windows XP Tablet Edition and Vista Business, although I wouldn't think this is a dual-boot solution. Instead, I'm thinking that you choose which operating system you want out of the box: one is installed and one is blown away, perhaps? There are two DIMM slots for memory so you can pop two 2 GB RAM modules in there for 4 GB of total memory. I don't see any battery life claims, but there's a second battery option available: 7800 mAh / 84.24 W/hr. No word on price yet either. Any slate users salivating over this?
