24 hours with a P1610 Tablet PC

Need I say more

Rob Bushway, of Team GottaBe, has done a thorough job of the new Fujitsu P1610. Since pricing was released last night for the device in Australia (and orders have already been taken) then I thought it only apropriate to let you all see the video (Ink Show as they call it). Well done Rob.

From Rob:

Well, it has been 24 hours since I received the Fujitsu P1610 Tablet PC, and I have to say I'm very, very pleased with it.
I'm working on an InkShow that should be up sometime this weekend, so I'm hoping this article will answer a few questions folks have until I can get that video shot. For a quick "First Looks" at the P1610, take a look at
this InkShow I shot last week while at Mobile Connections. That InkShow and this article should keep you satisified for just a little while. By the way, all the pictures on this article can be clicked to view the larger image.

Hugo I have an update for you on the new Microsoft UMPC. It is targeted at the education/gaming market. It has a tethered pen and an active digitizer. It is currently going thrugh usability tests with kids. I have no idea when it will shown to the world.

Hi Tablettoe,

Thanks for the update. I'd be keen to know the size, the shape, the battery life and most importantly the price...kiddies = no money, schools = no money.

Hey Hugo,
I got an email from Fujitsu about the P1610 price here in the US. It looks like it is around $2500 for all the goodies. But I didn't see any mention of the SIM card slot.

Hi Steven,

I got an internal email from Fujitsu that outlined the road-map. While I can't disclose certain things I can tell you that the road map looks like this: 3G end of this year, then HSDPA in Q2 2007. :-)

Hope this gives you more bread crumbs till we know more. Thanks for your inout and keep us all posted.

No technical stuff only my own experiences and my oppinion.
