Report: Fujitsu's Windows Tablet To Go On Sale Worldwide Next Spring

Do you remember the Fujitsu tablets we blogged about last month? The two models I saw at CEATEC 2010 were hidden behind plexi-glass boxes and used printed glossy paper for the screens (one model is pictured). But now Japan’s biggest business daily, The Nikkei, is not only reporting that a tablet made by Fujitsu really exists but that it’s scheduled to go on sale in spring 2011 (they are talking about just one version though).

According to the paper, the device will go on sale in the US, Europe, some countries in Asia and elsewhere simultaneously – priced at around $500. Apparently, Fujitsu is mainly targeting businesses and academic institutions with the yet to be named tablet and expects to sell 700,000 to 800,000 units in the first 12 months.

Spec-wise, buyers should expect Windows as the OS, a 10-inch LCD screen, a USB port, an SD card port, and eight hours of battery life. We’ll keep you posted.
