Fujistu Stylistic ports
At first glance, Fujitsu's M532 could seem a little vanilla. It has 32GB of internal storage, Wi-Fi and data connectivity, and comes with a virtually unmodified version of Android 4.0. It also has no proprietary Fujitsu user interface, making it ripe for quick upgrades in the future.
Its Corning Gorilla Glass-equipped 10.1-inch screen also seemed bright enough, even if the resolution does max out at 1280 x 800 pixels. There's always the option of connecting to an external display for full 1080p video playback via the dock (sold separately) or via an HDMI-to-microUSB converter cable, just as the HTC One X does. So far, so good. But here's the kicker: it has one thing that so many other tablets haven't managed to achieve — simplicity.
There's just one variant, which makes it easy to choose and buy. Plus, it comes with a price tag of just £476. Apple, which has done extraordinarily well in the pricing of its tablets and exercising command over economies of scale in manufacturing, can offer its 32GB new iPad with Wi-Fi and data for £579. But Fujitsu has managed to bring the M532 to market for more than £100 less.
