Fujitsu has announced a Windows 7 hybrid with a unique sliding keyboard is going on sale in Japan in June. The TH Series tablet is a 10.1-inch multitouch slate with a full keyboard that slides out when needed. The specs have it firmly in the netbook category, with Atom Oak Trail processor (1.5 GHz), 1 GB of RAM and a 120GB hard drive.
The Fujitsu TH will go on sale in Japan for ¥80,000 ($994) which is very expensive for a netbook, although a very unique one that does duty as a touch tablet. The keyboard is understandably very flat, and it remains to be seen if it is very good for typing. OEMs need to learn that just having a keyboard is not a plus if it doesn't work well.
