By standardising on a new common port replicator for notebooks and a common cradle for tablets6, users can enjoy the convenience of desktop computing when in the office – with their device jacked in to the main power supply and instantly connected to displays, Ethernet networks and external USB peripherals such as keyboards, mice and other accessories. Notebooks and tablets snugly click in to the dock – without any need to reboot – and undocking is a one-handed operation that simply requires the flick of a switch.
Fujitsu’s new docking station standard lowers total cost of ownership (TCO) since it means a reduction in expenditure on computing hardware and the ability to re-use existing docks when notebooks reach the end of their lifecycle. Meanwhile mobile workers benefit from simply being able to dock-and-work in hot-desk environments, without needing to buy or carry multiple cables and adaptors, or waste time plugging in multiple devices every time they change desks.
Paul Frost, Channel Manager at Fujitsu Ireland, says:
“We are delighted to offer more variety to our Irish customers through the extension of Fujitsu’s popular LIFEBOOK notebook and STYLISTIC tablet range. Ireland’s workplace is diverse and we at Fujitsu recognise that Irish enterprises need the opportunity to choose the right device to suit the individual needs of their business.”
Jörg Hartmann, Vice President Global Client Computing Devices at Fujitsu, says:
“We have recognized that organizations now want to give their workforce more choice when it comes to their business notebook. At Fujitsu, we are able to offer a wide range of notebooks and tablets, so when updating our popular LIFEBOOK models, we also took the opportunity to standardize on docking stations, and therefore solve an everyday annoyance for users. This is another example of how Fujitsu’s Human Centric product design makes it appealing for people to use our devices, and helps the bottom line of businesses too.”
Pricing and availability varies according to specification and region.
The line-up of the new LIFEBOOK products will be shown at Mobile World Congress, Barcelona from March 2 – 5, 2015. Fujitsu will be at booth 5A40 in Hall 5.
