(Updated July 25, 2010, to add pricing) For smaller companies that are interested in a more energy-efficiency entry level server, Fujitsu has just come out with the Primergy TX100 S2, based on the Intel Xeon processor 3400 series.The big value proposition for the new hardware is that it draws zero watts during its off state; most other server models draw some sort of residual power even they are supposedly powered down.
Fujitsu announced on Monday the LifeBook MH380 netbook, offering Intel's new Atom N450 processor for reduced power consumption and improved battery life.
I owned a couple UMPC devices in the past (Samsung Q1 and Fujitsu U810), but then decided to stick with a MSI Wind netbook for my mobile computing needs. James has me actually considering a new slate ultra-portable computer though with his extensive posts on the upcoming Viliv S5 device. This computer is quite compact and has some great specs such as the 1.33 GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB RAM, 60GB hard drive, 4.8 inch 1024x600 resolution touch screen display, WiFi, Bluetooth, integrated GPS receiver, and Windows XP.
James, Kevin, and I spent a bit more time than planned talking about the upcoming iPhone 3G on MobileTechRoundup show #138, but we eventually did move on to talk about lots more in the world of mobile tech. I talked about my experiences with upgrading the Nokia N78 over the air and James is going to try it out soon too. How much can be said about WiMAX and how much will it cost? Kevin let me know about Ubuntu MID Edition and I may actually load it on my Fujitsu U810 since the Intel A110 processor is supported. Great news that the public beta of Opera Mobile 9.5 will soon be available for Windows Mobile and UIQ owners. We also introduced listeners to the Nerd Club.
I am a big fan of ultra portable devices and particularly enjoy using my Fujitsu U810 with long battery life. I just read about the Willcom D4 UMPC over on the CNET Asia Crave blog and have to say this looks like one impressive device. It is one of the first devices running with an Intel Atom processor. Akihabara News was able to get some hands-on time with the device and posted over 80 photos showing it off in all its glory.
The LifeBook E8410 benefits from a large, high-resolution screen and integrated 3G/HSDPA connectivity. The USB ports could be better positioned though.

Gear makers have joined a nonprofit group looking to promote wireless access to high-speed broadband connections. Component and equipment makers, including Intel, Nokia and Fujitsu Microelectronics America, announced Tuesday that they will be working with WiMAX to help promote and certify compatibility and interoperability of equipment for wirelessly accessing high-speed broadband connections.
Fujitsu plans to join forces with Intel on a new line of Linux-based servers--a move that should stoke the ongoing server war and prove to be a big blow to Sun.
Fujitsu PC has begun shipping its first Pentium 4 notebook. The notebook, a new LifeBook C Series model, includes a Pentium 4-M mobile processor from Intel, a 15-inch display, and ATI Technologies' Radeon 7500 graphics chip. When configured with a 1.6GHz Pentium 4-M, 256MB of RAM, a 30GB hard drive, and a DVD/CD-Rewritable drive, the machine costs $1,999. Buyers can also choose to add a larger 40GB hard drive and more memory, up to 512MB. Fujitsu joins a number of PC makers who have launched Pentium 4-M notebooks since Intel introduced the chip in early March. --John Spooner, Special to ZDNet News
The race to set the industry standard for flash memory heated-up yesterday when Toshiba and Samsung joined forces to support a 128Mb flash memory format based on Toshiba's SmartMedia brand.The joint initiative follows other industry collaborations in developing flash memory most notably by the Intel/Sharp and AMD/Fujitsu pairings but 128Mb flash products are expected until 2001.
