Fujitsu has today announced a pair of "Windows 8 ready" devices intended to wow the enterprise market. The Lifebook T902 is standard-looking convertible laptop (think HP Pavilion tx1000, not Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga) with a 13-inch 1600 x 900 Gorilla Glass-fronted display, a choice of Core i5 or i7 Ivy Bridge processors, up to 16GB of RAM, integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000, and optional 4G / 3G modems. Fujitsu has packed in a few business-centric features such as a fingerprint sensor, Trusted Platform Module (TPM), and Computrace support. The T902 has a modular expansion bay which can house a secondary hard drive or battery — Fujitsu says with the extra battery the laptop will last for 11 hours on a single charge.
The Stylistic (that's the brand name, not an editorial opinion) Q702 is a hybrid tablet in the style of Asus' Transformer range. It has 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass that supports touch and pen input, and will be configurable with a range of Ivy Bridge Core i3 and i5 processors, up to 128GB of SSD storage, HD Graphics 4000, and the same enterprise-ready security features as the Lifebook T902. Its detachable keyboard dock features a two-button trackpad, an ethernet port, a pair of USB ports, and a VGA port for all your projecting needs. Like Asus' Transformer range, the keyboard dock also contains a battery that extends the tablet's battery life to 10 hours (alone the tablet will last just four and a half hours).
Both devices are set to arrive between now and September and will ship with Windows 7, but you will of course be able to take advantage of Microsoft's Windows 8 $14.99 upgrade offer. The Lifebook T902 will start at an eye-watering $1,899, and the base model Stylistic Q702 tablet will be priced at $1,099.
