(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.
This is a well built and very capable 2U rack server from a respected vendor that can be configured to suit a wide variety of applications. It's particularly strong on disk capacity and PCIe expansion.
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.

Transmeta has hired Fujitsu to forge a future Transmeta Efficeon processor. The Santa Clara, Calif.
The S-6120 is an attractively designed sub-2kg notebook with exemplary mainstream performance. However, demanding applications could be held back by its integrated graphics, battery life is disappointing and the price is on the high side.
The Voyager Xi delivers the Centrino promise of power, extended battery life and seamlessly integrated wireless LAN. But there are compromises, notably in the choice of integrated Intel 855GM graphics and the overall build quality.
The XScale-based Pocket LOOX 600 is well priced and strong on expansion potential, but you’ll have to wait for the GPRS add-on module.
Less than a month after Sun Microsystems brought its new Solaris 9 operating system to its servers, Fujitsu Technology Solutions has followed suit with its own servers. Fujitsu's Primepower servers, which include 128-processor behemoths, use Sparc64 GP processors that work similarly to Sun's UltraSparc chips and thus can run Sun's operating system and the higher-level software available for it. Fujitsu said Solaris 9 improves security and the amount of computing performance that can be wrung out of multiprocessor servers. Solaris, like IBM's AIX and Hewlett-Packard's HP-UX, is a version of Unix that competes with Linux and Microsoft Windows. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
Fujitsu PC on Tuesday launched a new LifeBook A-series notebook, based on Advanced Micro Devices' Athlon 4 processor. The new LifeBook A Series will offer a 1.2GHz Athlon 4 chip with a 14-inch screen, 128MB of RAM and a 30GB hard drive for a starting price of $1,299. The all-in-one notebook, which incorporates a floppy drive and a CD-ROM or combination CD-R/DVD drive, is aimed at a range of customers, including corporations, government and students, the company said. --John G. Spooner, Special to ZDNet News
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
Fujitsu Technology Systems, a subsidiary of the Japanese electronics giant, has upgraded the processor speed in its Primepower line of Unix servers, the company said Tuesday. The high-end Primepower 800, 1000 and 2000 models can use a 675MHz Sparc64-GP processor, while the lower-end 200, 400 and 600 models can use a 600MHz version.
Fujitsu to unveil 128-CPU serverFujitsu Technology Solutions hopes to put the squeeze on Sun Microsystems, IBM and Hewlett-Packard when it rolls out its new top-end Unix server, a 128-processor behemoth.
Fujitsu VPP5000 Series HPC Server to help Toyota cut new vehicle development time TOKYO, 9 March 2000 -- Fujitsu Limited today announced that it has received an order from Toyota Motor Corporation for a multi- processor VPP5000 Series HPC Server -- the world's fastest vector supercomputer -- which it has installed and will be fully operational later this month.
Toshiba said today it will join the consortium, led by Professor Murakami of Kiushu University, which plans to produce a processor to rival the Pentium by 1998. Fujitsu, Hitachi, NEC and Sony are among the 10 chip makers who have joined the group.
