Our sister blog Engadget is still doubting it, but it’s been confirmed officially: in May, Fujitsu announced the LIFEBOOK TH40/D, a convertible Windows 7 tablet for the Japanese market that was to be released in June. But that didn’t happen for reasons unknown, and Fujitsu pushed back the sales date of the device indefinitely.
But now big F has finally announced [JP] it has fixed the release in Japan: it will hit stores over here next Friday (July 22).
Everything else remains unchanged: the tablet will still cost $1,012 and have the following main specs: a 10.1-inch LCD screen with 1,024×600 resolution, 1GB RAM, an Atom Z670 (1.50GHz) CPU, a 120GB HDD, IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, 2 USB slots, and an HDMI port.
Fujitsu is yet to say whether their device will hit international markets as well.
