Fujitsu Launches Slate Tablet PC For On-Your-Feet Computing

By PRESS RELEASE — January 06, 2009

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire) - Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation, the expert in pen computing, showcased its 17 years of experience in developing tablet PCs, announcing the Stylistic ST6012 slate tablet PC featuring the first embedded, biometric pre-boot authentication available on a slate, improved processor performance, and a new semi-rugged sleek exterior. Less than one-inch thick with a 12.1-inch, anti-glare display, the comfortable-to-carry slate is ideal for on-your-feet computing markets including insurance, education, and healthcare, as well as retail/mobile sales.

With its multifunction pen and indoor/outdoor display, the Stylistic ST6012 slate works like pen and paper -- only better -- offering the ability to write or sketch on the display, fill out digital forms, enter data and take orders. Plus, an optional rear mounted webcam captures images essential for reports such as insurance claims. When customers need to acknowledge receipt or sign contracts, the Stylistic ST6012 tablet PC delivers with digital signature capture using automatic handwriting recognition and special software.
