Windows 10 has been unveiled not so long ago, and this seems to be another reason for current OEMs to resume their Windows 8 plans, since all Windows 8, 8.1 devices will be upgraded for free to Windows 10. Such is the case with Japanese company Fujitsu.
We’ve recently seen Lenovo announce its latest tablets and convertibles with Windows 8 on-board and we’re having a quick look at a recently unveiled tablet from Fujitsu. The Fujitsu Arrows Tab QH33/S tablet with Windows 8.1 with Bing has been launched, and despite the unusual and hard to remember name, it is pretty much an average tablet.
The Fujitsu Arrows Tab QH33/S is a Windows 8.1 with Bing tablet which features a 8-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 800. It measures 126 x 215 x 9.9 mm and weighs 390 grams. There’s an Intel Bay Trail Z3735F quad-core processor clocked at a base frequency of 1.33 GHz and 2 GB of RAM powering it. There’s 64 GB of expandable internal storage, as well.
The 8-inch Windows tablet also comes with a 5 MP primary camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and a micro-HDMI output, being powered by a 20 Wh battery which is said to offer about 10 hours of usage. It doesn’t feature a stylus and an active digitizer, which are present in other similar devices from Fujitsu’s portfolio.
And with a price of around €435, it’s pretty hard to believe it will manage to impress consumers, that’s why I believe it will remain available only in Japan where it’s said to get released in mid- November. Fujitsu needs to do something to make its products more attractive for Europeans and those in the US, as well.
