AMD Hondo gets first design win
Fujitsu sticks it in enterprise Windows tablet
AMD recently introduced its new Hondo APU, the company’s first chip specifically designed for tablets, namely Windows tablets.
Today AMD announced the first Hondo design win, a Windows tablet by Fujitsu. The Stylistic Q572 tablet is a 10-inch device with an IPS 1366x768 display, digital pen input, 5-megapixel camera, HDMI, SD slot and two USB 2.0 ports.
Of course, AMD’s new Z-60 APU runs the show and the tablet has a few geeky features, like an integrated fingerprint sensor, TPM, SmartCard reader and even a removable battery. It seems Fujitsu is targeting businesses and big IT departments with this device, so don’t expect it to come cheap – it’s not a toy designed to chuck around suicidal birds.
The new Stylistic will be available in Windows 7 and Windows 8 flavours, another indication that it means business, since it will cater to enterprises stuck on Windows 7.
