Fujitsu Stylistic Q704 Hands On Photos

Apr
17
2014

This morning we got up close and personal with the upcoming Fujitsu Stylistic Q704. The Q704 is a high end Windows 8 Tablet (Windows 7 is also supported) designed for business productivity.

Stock of the Stylistic Q704 is expected mid-May and will come in i7, i5 and i3 variants.

The 12.5” screen does not feel as big as you would expect. It has a 1920×1080 full HD resolution and a bright 350 nit display. Viewing angle is very good as you would expect for a high end quality business tablet.

The hybrid Q704 keyboard has a clean, simple layout with nice big buttons and an ample track pad. There is a battery in the keyboard for extended runtime and as you’ll see down the post, lots of ports.

Fujitsu-Stylistic-Q704-Hybrid-Windows-8-Tablet-0003

One of the competition beating features of the Fujitsu Stylistic Q702 was the fact that the screen hinge was designed to be able to pivot the tablet screen all of the way back. You can that this design has carries over onto the Q704. See that in action below.

All of the other hybrid Windows 8 Tablets can not do this (Samsung ATIV, Toshiba z10t, Lenovo Helix, Microsoft Surface) and it is a sore point for many users.

It’s these clever user focused engineering solutions that set Fujitsu apart. They get tablets users like no-one else, but you would expect that since they’ve been in the tablet game for 20 years +.

Fujitsu-Stylistic-Q704-Hybrid-Windows-8-Tablet-0004

The Fujitsu Q704 is IP57 rated meaning that it can get seriously wet! You can see below that there are port covers in place on all the ports to facilitate this.

I wouldn’t call the Q704 a rugged tablet, but this is a nice feature for a mobile professional on the go. You never know when a shower of rain or a glass of water is coming at you!

There is a full sized USB 3 port and micro USB 2 port on the tablet along with a SIM card slot (for the 4G internal modem) and a microSD memory card reader.

Fujitsu-Stylistic-Q704-Hybrid-Windows-8-Tablet-0013

There is a fan on the side of the Q704, along with some standard buttons. There is some talk about users wanting tablets without fans these days, but when you want to get maximum performance out of an Intel Core i7 processor, a fan is your friend.

What I’ve found so far on the T904 tablets that have come across my desk is that the new Intel “Haswell” Core i7 chips run very cool – around 40 degrees C in average use, 50 degrees C when pushed – so I don’t imagine that the tablet will get hot to touch like they did in generations gone by.

The charging tip is the same as the Q702 meaning that power adapters like the Targus Car Charger will continue to work with this tablet.

Fujitsu-Stylistic-Q704-Hybrid-Windows-8-Tablet-0010

The keyboard dock enables 2 more fast USB 3 ports, HDMI, Ethernet and…

Fujitsu-Stylistic-Q704-Hybrid-Windows-8-Tablet-0020

A VGA port.

I still find that 90% of the meeting rooms that I conduct training in only have VGA available to connect. So with the Q704 keyboard handy maybe I can eliminate a few kilograms of the display input cables the weight down my backpack.

Fujitsu-Stylistic-Q704-Hybrid-Windows-8-Tablet-0019

Long time tablet users and digital artists will be happy to see that Fujitsu have gone back to using Wacom pens on the Q704.

Fujitsu-Stylistic-Q704-Hybrid-Windows-8-Tablet-0023

The new pen design has one right click button and no eraser on the back end, the same pen that comes in the new Lifebook T904. However, 3rd party Wacom Tablet PC pens will still work on the Q704. For example, you might want to use an older T902 pen with 2 buttons and the eraser.

Fujitsu-Stylistic-Q704-Hybrid-Windows-8-Tablet-0022

There is a fingerprint reader on board, a huge bonus for people who take security seriously (yes, you seriously should)!

Fingerprint login is another one of those features that Fujitsu have stuck with while most other manufacturers have not. 

The technology became very usable over the last 5 years and it since it is a massive time saver on tablets. Typing on your complex password 20 times a day is no fun, especially when you know that you could just swipe 1 finger and be done with it.

Motion Computing Announces R12 Rugged Windows 8 Tablet!

Mar
26
2014

We got a chance to get our hands on a new 12 inch rugged Motion Computing tablet last month. It’s called the Motion R12.

Take a look at Motion’s R12 “platform overview” video here:

The R12 will replace the J3600 as Motion’s 12” tablet for field workers. It includes the latest generation Intel Core i5 and i7 “Haswell” processors for far better battery life and maximum performance.

Compared to the J-Series (J3400, J3500, J3600) the R12 is a lot thinner and lighter – a welcome feature for a big rugged tablet. It retains the hot-swap battery capability for 24×7 operations. Mobile 4G / LTE will be standard on the R12 as well as the latest Wifi and Bluetooth 4 wireless.

Like the J-Series, the R12 will ship with an innovative keyboard stand as seen in the video. Other integrated options include a 2D Bar Code scanner, RFID and a Serial Port.

It’s tough of course too. The 1920×1080 screen is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3. It’s drop tested to 4 feet and IP54 rated, bringing it up to the standard of the venerable Motion F5te.

10 finger touch ensures Windows 8 support, but the R12 also supports Windows 7. A new Wacom pen completes the package.

As always with Motion, a complete array of accessories have already been conceived and developed including desktop and vehicle docks, mounting solutions, carry options, network enable lockable charging docks and more. Demonstrations will be available around next week!

ASUS VivoTab Note 8 – 8 inch Windows 8.1 Tablet with Wacom Pen

Mar
17
2014

Exciting times down here in Melbourne! We’ve been testing the Asus VivoTab Note 8 for a couple of weeks. How far things have come in the tablet world!

What’s so special about the VivoTab Note 8? Well, it’s an extremely small and portable Windows 8.1 tablet with a Wacom digitizer pen. In fact, it’s currently the only 8” Windows 8.1 tablet with a Wacom digitizer pen and it is under $400 inc GST!

P3170856

If you want to go paperless with companion device, then having a Wacom digitizer on board enables:

  • Note taking in OneNote
  • Hand writing recognition
  • Red-lining and mark-up
  • Drawing and sketching.

As long time tablet veterans, there were times when we felt like we were the only ones in the world who had praise for the digitizer pen.

But now that consumer tablets have been all the rage for several years, discerning users who appreciate the need for advanced pen technology have turned in droves to tablets like the Samsung Galaxy Note series.

The Galaxy Note uses the same Wacom Digitizer system that featured on all good Windows Tablet PCs for the last 12 years.

And now, finally, we have the same on a small, ultra-mobile Windows 8.1 tablet.

P3170869

The VivoTab Note 8 features the latest Intel Atom “Bay Trail” quad core processor. The Atom is still not capable of powering a desktop replacement device, but it does leave it’s predecessors in the dust.

At last with Bay Trail, the Windows 8 experience is where it should be on a companion device. Graphics are smooth, touch is responsive, video is seamless and gameplay is awesome.

P3180895

There are a few minor sacrifices made on the VivoTab Note 8 to accommodate the Active Digitizer Pen. It’s a tad heavier than the svelte Lenovo Miix 2 (340g) at around 390g. It’s a tad thicker and the battery life is definitely shorter, but still very acceptable.

Asus-VivoTab-Note-8

The screen also has an uncanny knack for attracting fingerprints, so we would recommend using a screen protector for better results. But those sacrifices are worth it.

The 8 Megapixel Camera is good for a tablet camera. There is also a 3 Megapixel web camera on the front.

P3170877

Serious note takers will want to consider an accessory pen like the Wacom Bamboo Stylus Feel shown below. The inbuilt Wacom pen is a good back up, but it is too small and flimsy for extended use.

P3180899

The VivoTab Note 8 comes with a Microsoft Office Home and Student single licence. That gets delivers Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. The Note 8 performs great with OneNote 2013 as shown above.

Who will the ASUS VivoTab Note 8 suit?

  • Office execs looking for a note-taking companion device
  • Students looking to take notes in class
  • Sketchers and digital artists looking for a creativity device.

Fujitsu Lifebook T904 vs T902 comparison

Mar
17
2014

Here is a close up look at the new Fujitsu Lifebook T904 side by side with its predecessor -the T902.

Fujitsu seems to have put the last model T902 on a bit of a diet to produce the T904. The Lifebook T904 now carries the Intel Ultrabook brand and it weighs in at 1.6kg, down from the T902’s 1.9kg.

P3170784

The T904 is still Fujitsu’s high end convertible tablet with Intel Core i7 and i5 processors on offer. 8Gb RAM and 256Gb SSD is standard on the models that we stock.

P3170790

The T904 is a lot slimmer while retaining the 13.3” screen. As you can see in the pictures below the screen is now much more glossy. Resolution has been beefed up to a fine “3K” at 2560×1440.

Importantly, the T904 still uses the good ol’ Wacom digitizer pen (docked in on the right hand side base). The pen has a new shorter, slimmer, square shape and loses the second right click button and eraser.

P3170785

There is no multi-bay expansion on the new T904 to save on space, but the battery is still removable. With the new fourth generation “Haswell” processors on board, you may not need an additional battery anyway.

I can’t remember the last time that I used an optical disk, so I guess not many will miss that feature too…

P3170786

The charger is the same as the last series, meaning that you can use our Targus car charger straight out of the box too.

More Fujitsu Lifebook T904 information to come. Stock is arriving soon!

Panasonic Toughbook FZ-M1–7” Rugged Windows 8 Tablet Hands On

Feb
9
2014

Only one month ago we saw Panasonic announce the new Toughbook FZ-M1 Rugged Windows 8 Tablet at CES 2014. On Friday, we got some hands on time with an actual pre-production Toughbook FZ-M1. Take a look at our pictures below!

The FZ-M1 is fills a big gap in the rugged Windows 8 tablet market. Many rugged tablet users are looking for a smaller, lighter device to offer to their workers.

While there are lots of 10” rugged tablets available, companies have been pushing for a 7” device, but they still need the advanced features that only Windows can offer – Security, Management, Multi-User, Desktop etc.

So with a 7” screen and weighing only around 600 grams, the FZ-M1 seems to fit the bill.

Tougbook FZ-M1 Rugged Windows 8 Tablet

The FZ-M1 feels brilliantly light in the hand, but also incredibly robust. We’re told it’s even tougher than the Toughbook G1!

Tougbook FZ-M1 Rugged Windows 8 Tablet

When looking at the FZ-M1 next to my Nokia Lumia 920 (4.5” screen) you get a feel for how compact it is.

Tougbook FZ-M1 Rugged Windows 8 Tablet

The modular option bay at the back protrudes slightly, allowing the FZ-M1 to be seen easier when on a flat surface. The screen viewing angles are excellent all round.

Tougbook FZ-M1 Rugged Windows 8 Tablet

Like the FZ-G1, the FZ-M1 will come with an Intel Core i5 processor, albeit the later Haswell version. 4G will be offered on the device, a first for rugged tablets in Australia.

Tougbook FZ-M1 Rugged Windows 8 Tablet

The only thing that the FZ-M1 doesn’t have that we’d like is an Active Digitizer Pen. However, although the FZ-M1 will ship with Windows 8.1 on board, it will mostly be used away from the desktop.

Companies looking at this type of device will be deploying touch friendly line of business apps in the Windows 8.1 modern app environment.

Tougbook FZ-M1 Rugged Windows 8 Tablet

Unlike the FZ-G1, there is no screen edge recess on the FZ-M1 which makes it slightly more comfortable with touch input.

An optional factory installed integrated accessory port houses a Bar Code Reader, GPS, serial port or microSDXC slot.

There will also be GPS and 3G antenna pass-through for those models fitted with those features.

Tougbook FZ-M1 Rugged Windows 8 Tablet

Like all Toughbooks, the FZ-M1 will be paired with a variety of peripherals like desktop and vehicle docking stations, carry options, batteries and chargers.

Stock is expected around March – April. Contact us for more information.

7” Toughbook FZ-M1 – Rugged Windows 8 tablet announced at CES

Jan
9
2014

FZ-M1In amongst the piles of 7” and 8” Windows 8 tablets announced at this weeks Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas is a new 7” Panasonic Toughbook.

Typically small rugged tablets have had to use an Intel Atom processor, making them a poor choice for all but the simplest jobs.

This new Toughbook is not compromised like that. The 7” powerhouse gets a fourth generation Intel Core i5 “Haswell” chip and up to 8Gb of RAM.

That’s more than the average desktop PC in a 600gram package!

Product highlights:

  • Intel Core i5 Haswell
  • Windows 8 Pro
  • Up to 8Gb RAM
  • Up to 256Gb HDD
  • 3G / 4G options
  • Hot-swap battery
  • Weights around 600 grams
  • 7” 1280 x 800 Screen
  • USB 3 port
  • Docking connector
  • 5 foot drop tested, IP65 – Water and dust resistant

Initial pictures reveal a docking connector, USB 3 port, and an audio port.

Like the Toughbook FZ-G1 there is also mention a configuration port. In the G1, that port can be configured at factory with enhanced GPS, a barcode reader, serial port or a microSDXC card reader.

Where the M1 improves over the G1:

  • Hot swap battery
  • Lighter weight
  • Smaller form factor

Where the G1 will still be better than the M1:

  • Larger screen (G1 10 inch vs  M1 7 inch)
  • Higher resolution screen (G1 1920 x 1200 vs  M1 1280 x 800)
  • Wacom active digitizer

This is an important Windows 8 tablet for Microsoft too since many other manufacturers have turned to Android for their smaller tablets like the Getac Z710.

Pictures of the Panasonic Toughbook FZ-M1 rugged Windows 8.1 tablet so far:

 

The smaller form factor should appeal to many field tablet users. Carrying this device all day would be a lot more appealing than the 10” equivalent.

We look forward to finding out more about the FZ-M1.

Two things you should consider when purchasing a tablet for business

Dec
31
2013

Most tablet purchasers already have a preference in mind for weight, screen size, battery life, looks, brand name, operating system and app selection.

But what are the two critical factors that should be considered first in any business tablet purchase?

1. Consumer Tablet or Business Tablet?

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2Michael Archambault posted a great discussion on business vs consumer PCs over at Windows Phone Central. It is well worth reading if you are buying any PC for business use, including a Tablet PC.

In summary, consumer PCs are designed to:

  1. Look good on the shelf in the store
  2. Last for a year or two of light use
  3. To be scrapped after a short lifecycle.

On the other hand, it is not unusual to find a business grade PC in use 3, 4 or even 5 years down the track.

Fujitsu Lifebook T902On the other hand, Business PCs are designed to:

  1. Suit business needs with options like legacy ports, outdoor screens, mobile broadband and more.
  2. Last for at least 3 years (or more) of every day intense use
  3. To be repairable, serviceable and backed by a solid, responsive warranty
  4. To be recycled and reused into extended lifecycles.

Business tablets should be treated no different to laptops. If a tablet is doing the job it was implemented for there should be no need to replace it every year.

Responsible use of longer lifecycle computer hardware is better for the business bottom line and for the environment.

2. Rugged or Non-Rugged?

Tablet with cracked screenExtending on this principle, business tablet buyers also need to consider the environment that the tablet will be used in.

Tablets are designed to be highly mobile and most mobile environments are extremely demanding. Sunshine, rain, dust, dirt, hot, cold, bumps and knocks are just a few of the environmental factors that business tablets come into contact with every day.

Most tablets – business or consumer – are simply not designed for these environments. Unfortunately the simplistic solution ofMotion J3600 rugged tablet in useten employed badly by companies is to put a consumer tablet into a rugged casing.

However, a consumer tablet in a rugged case falls woefully short of meeting users needs. Just a few of the limitations of a ruggedized case are:

  1. Screen visibility is diminished to an unusable level
  2. Touch and pen input is interfered with
  3. Port access is compromised
  4. Mounting options are unusable.

There are much better options available in the form or rugged tablets.

Rugged tablets are designed to:

  1. Be used and easily readable outdoors
  2. To limit dust, water and liquid ingress to prevent failure
  3. To resist drops and knocks and remain operational
  4. To last through a long lifecycle of 3 or more years.

20130117_151939The cost of a rugged, business grade device is always higher than a consumer device but the solution is nearly infinitely more productive. That’s because the rugged device is designed for the environment, and not shoe-horned into it.

Additionally – as with business grade devices – parts and service continue to be available for these devices many years after the warranty runs out.

For example, the Motion computing F5 series has run for over 7 years now, but power adapters, pens, batteries, docking stations and peripherals are all still available for the original devices.

This month a customer came in to replace one of the original F5 models that had been in service every working day for 6 years. Here is a picture of it:

Original Motion F5 6 years later

The replaced it with a newer model Motion F5t of course!

My original iPad has had the equivalent of about 3 weeks of light use over 3 years and it looks a lot more banged up than this 6 year old Motion F5.

Not every job demands a rugged device of course. Nor does every tablet need to be a business grade tablet. But you should be asking the questions before you start your mobility project.

A business grade or rugged tablet might seem expensive when compared to a consumer options, but…

Short term thinking is always expensive.

Too many times we hear people say that you could buy three or four consumer tablets for the price of one rugged tablet. The answer is usually, “yes, you will.”

If you are thinking seriously about the complete lifecycle of your upcoming tablet project, then you should talk to us.

Westpac using Lenovo ThinkPad Helix Windows 8 Tablets

Dec

2013

Take a look at this Windows 8 tablet story from Microsoft and Westpac Australia. The video shows outbound Westpac banking representatives using the Lenovo ThinkPad Helix as both a desktop computer and a tablet.

Westpac discovered that there are enormous benefits in using a single Windows device that is both a laptop and a Tablet. To name just a few:

  1. One device to manage (instead of a laptop and a tablet)
  2. Fits in with existing IT management infrastructure (they already manage laptops)
  3. High security standards are maintained (Bitlocker encryption, TPM, Intel Anti-theft, Granular user access and data control)
  4. End users get a superior touch experience and a familiar desktop experience
  5. Mobility is increased.

No doubt Westpac have not even begun scratch the surface of the productivity benefits of Windows 8 on a Tablet PC, but check out the video:
