Fujitsu U810 UMPC gets AT&T integrated WWAN and a hard drive bump

I thoroughly enjoy my Fujitsu U810 UMPC because it gives me a full computer in a 1.5 pound package that runs for at least 4 hours with a single battery and wireless connectivity. Fujitsu just announced the availability of a model with integrated AT&T Broadband (wireless) data support. These new models start at US$1,299 and also have a bump in the hard drive from 40GB to 60GB. Unfortunately, the RAM hasn't been bumped to 2GB like I was hoping for and still remain at 1GB.

You can still purchase one of these with AT&T Broadband and the 40GB drive for US$100 less (US$1,199 total). by customizing your purchase options. Unfortunately, the RAM hasn't been bumped to 2GB (and there is no option to do so) like I was hoping for and still remain at 1GB.

The form factor and majority of the specifications remain the same; Intel A110 processor at 800 MHz, 1GB RAM, integrated Bluetooth and WiFi, CF and SD card slots, USB port, ethernet/VGA on an included cable, biometric finger scanner, and Windows Vista.

I bought my Fujitsu with an extra extended battery and docking cradle for only US$930 from the Fujitsu refurb/outlet store and also added the extra 9 months of warranty almost 3 months ago, but I won't be upgrading to this latest model. I can connect now with a S60 or Windows Mobile phone and get wireless data access, although having it integrated into a PC can make for a bit cleaner solution. By the way, the Fujitsu ebay store is a great place to get good deals on Fujitsu computers and most come with at least a 90-day warranty.

As I get closer to the end of my warranty, I may actually upgrade my hard drive to a SSD model or larger capacity drive and by the end of the year I imagine those prices will drop quite a bit as well.

Thanks to jkOnTheRun for the heads-up on this news release.
