Fujitsu today introduces one of the widest selections of devices
featuring Windows 8, including its first Windows 8-based hybrid tablet,
the Fujitsu STYLISTIC Q702.

    From tablets to convertibles to a revolutionary hybrid, the Fujitsu
portfolio is designed to help accelerate dramatic changes in the way
people are working with computers -- incorporating touch, always-on
connectivity and a consistent user experience across PCs, notebooks and
tablets. Under the moniker Reshaping the Workplace, Fujitsu is embracing
the industry megatrend toward "bring your own device," and the increasing
number of people who are working with multiple devices throughout the day.

    To ensure that users can stay in touch with modern business requirements,
Fujitsu offers not only a wide choice of connected devices, but also
innovative design for greater usability and the convenience of
touch-screen. Clever features make new Fujitsu models designed for
Windows 8 an attractive choice, and are built in to the design to make
the user experience more rewarding, more productive and more enjoyable.
And while Fujitsu is enabling users to benefit from a more intuitive and
natural way of working, it is also helping assure CIOs that they can
count on enterprise computing essentials including manageability,
enhanced security and mobility.

    Available soon for pre-order, Fujitsu flagship convertible notebook and
tablet models featuring Windows 8 are thinner, lighter and faster than
outgoing models with Windows 7 preinstalled. They make the most of the
operating system's capabilities, especially multi-touch and pen input --
combining the convenience of touch with the accuracy of pen.

    Business users who want the style and convenience of a touch-screen
tablet without sacrificing the essentials of security-enhanced features
and usability need look no further than the Fujitsu line-up featuring
Windows 8. Fujitsu offers its innovative STYLISTIC Q702 hybrid tablet
featuring Windows 8. This can conveniently be used as a tablet while
traveling, or converted into a traditional notebook by using an optional
attachable keyboard complete with an extra battery. The new Fujitsu
STYLISTIC Q572 is a fully fledged 10.1-inch tablet PC system that
combines enhanced performance with extensive security-enhanced features
including an incorporated fingerprint sensor, SmartCard reader and Full
Disk Encryption (FDE) and tops it off with day-long working, supported by
a swappable battery.

    The Fujitsu range of devices featuring Windows 8 also extends to one of
the lightest and slimmest 13.3-inch convertible notebooks, the LIFEBOOK
T902, and the 12.5-inch LIFEBOOK T732, which include business features
like Intel vPro(TM) technology and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for
improved mobile security. Users can specify an additional port replicator
for easy drop-and-go in corporate environments or use the modular bay for
a second battery or second hard disk drive. 

    With Windows 8, users can enjoy benefits such as support for Adobe Flash
and HTML5 with Internet Explorer 10 as well as full support for multiple
user accounts even on tablets -- plus access to USB ports and full
compatibility with mice, keyboards, and other USB peripherals. All
Fujitsu tablets and notebook models featuring Windows 8 offer
connectivity through support for Wi-Fi and UMTS/4G mobile data and add
the convenience of Bluetooth to connect wireless peripherals.

    Easy operating system migration through choice of easy upgrade or
 For enterprises that are still evaluating company-wide Windows
8 rollout but want to give early adopters the chance to enjoy the
productivity boost of touch-screen technology, Fujitsu is able to offer
the best of both worlds. All new Fujitsu models ship with a choice of
Windows 7 or Windows 8 licenses. Customers with a Windows 7 Professional
license are also entitled to downgrade to Windows XP.

    The full line-up of new Fujitsu devices featuring Windows 8 will be
available for pre-order soon. For information on Fujitsu tablet PCs and
