Fujitsu Introduces ARROWS Tab Wi-Fi Tablet for Consumers

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, January 12, 2012

Fujitsu today announced the release of ARROWS Tab Wi-Fi, a new tablet PC targeted toward consumers in the ARROWS series of tablets and smartphones. The new tablet will be available for purchase throughout Japan in consumer electronics stores as well as Fujitsu's WEB MART shopping service site from January 19th.

The ARROWS Tab Wi-Fi is equipped with a fingerprint sensor(1) and is IPX5/7 water-resistant(2). It can be used in places near water, such as in bath areas or the kitchen, as well as outdoors, further enhancing usability. In addition to high-speed Wi-Fi data communications, it is equipped with other leading-edge specs, such as a high-speed and high-efficiency dual core CPU, DLNA support, and a highly responsive Saku-Saku Touchpanel. Also, while it employs a lightweight, slim body design, it features a 10.1 inch large screen display and Dolby®Mobile v3 front speakers, so it is possible to fully enjoy video entertainment. Furthermore, in connecting to other PCs, the ARROWS Tab Wi-Fi is standard equipped with an F-Link(3) wireless data exchange application. This feature enables users to connect to Fujitsu FMV PCs and load recorded TV programs onto their tablet using a mobile export function. In addition, the i-Filter for Android™(4) web filtering application is a standard feature that allows users to browse the Internet without worry.

Main Features

1. Equipped with fingerprint sensor for easy lock release and password management

  1. Screen lock release
    When recovering from sleep mode, it is easy to release the screen lock just by sliding one's finger over the fingerprint sensor. Fingerprint authentication makes for a highly secure usage environment.
  2. Password manager
    If authentication data, such as account IDs and passwords, are registered, one fingerprint enables the registered data to be accessed and managed, so users need not worry about forgetting this information.

2. Can even be enjoyed in the bathtub and kitchen

  1. Water-resistant & lightweight
    Users do not have to worry about getting the tablet PC wet when using it around water, such as in the bathtub or in the kitchen. Being thin and lightweight, the tablet PC is easy for users to carry wherever they go.
  2. Hand gesture control feature
    The built-in camera can recognize hand gestures for operation even without directly touching the screen. As a result, smooth operation of the tablet PC is possible when preparing food and the user's hands are not clean, or even when in the bathtub and user's hands are wet.

3. High processing performance delivers quick Internet and image responsiveness

  1. Saku-Saku Touchpanel
    The combination of the large 10.1-inch LCD screen and Fujitsu's proprietary quick-response panel delivers unprecedented ease of operation. With the touch panel's special surface processing, called Super Glide Coating, users can glide their way through the tablet's touch panel operations.
  2. Dual core CPU
    With the OMAP4 (1GHz) high-speed, high-performance dual core CPU for extraordinary processing performance, users can comfortably enjoy watching videos and playing the latest game applications.

4. Large-screen, high-resolution display for a striking audiovisual experience

  1. Front stereo speakers achieve pristine audio quality
    The tablet's two speakers allow for clear audio and powerful bass that is perfect for enjoying multimedia content.
  2. One-segment broadcasts
    With the tablet's "smooth display(5)" frame enhancement technology, which enables a 15 frames/second video clip to play at 30 frames/second, users can watch smooth one-segment video content.
  3. Dolby® Mobile v3
    The tablet is equipped with the latest version of DolbyMobile for producing lifelike surround sound. Virtual 5.1 channel surround(6) sound performance, which is equivalent to that used in home theaters, allows users to enjoy impressive audio—as if at a movie theater or concert hall—from wherever they are.

5. Wireless connection to other devices

  1. F-LINK
    Photographs and videos taken with the ARROWS Tab Wi-Fi can be easily transferred to PCs equipped with F-LINK. In addition, data can be exchanged wirelessly and smoothly with any F-LINK equipped PC or any other Android™ device without the burdensome process of connecting a cable to the tablet, or removing and inserting a memory card.
  2. DLNA connectivity
    The tablet can connect to DLNA-compliant Blue-ray disk recorders(7) and other devices and view streams of recorded terrestrial digital broadcast(8) programs in Hi-Vision resolution.

6. Linking to Fujitsu FMV PC's

  1. Enjoying recorded television programs on the go
    If users have a Fujitsu FMV supporting mobile exporting features, they can easily load videos using a microSD card. When commuting to work or on the way to school, users can enjoy recorded video on the go whenever they want.

7. Advanced user interface combines high performance with ease of operation

  1. Style options
    The tablet PC is pre-installed with six style options representing optimal combinations of wallpaper, applications, and widgets, depending on how and where it will be used. Users can easily switch styles depending on their mood or the situation in which the tablet PC will be used.
  2. Text input
    The tablet PC is equipped with a variety of text input modes, from one-handed input using a numeric keypad reminiscent of a mobile phone, to hand-written input using Fujitsu's proprietary high-speed and high-precision engine, taking full advantage of the tablet PC's screen size. The tablet can be used in different ways depending on circumstances or user preferences.

8. Loaded with applications that make life more enjoyable and convenient

  1. i-Filter for Android™
    Users can set a variety of web browsing filters to browse the Internet. It is also equipped with a feature that limits applications, so anyone can use the tablet with peace of mind.

As a result, depending on the person, the fingerprint may have few unique data points, and the registration procedure may not work. In addition, depending upon the condition of the finger, it may be difficult to register the fingerprint, or authentication accuracy (the proportion of correct fingerprint authentications when sliding a finger over the sensor) may decline. There is no guarantee that fingerprint authentication will perfectly authenticate and verify the correct person. Please be aware that Fujitsu accepts no liability for any damages arising from the use or the inability to use this product.
