This really looks like my next zaurus, at least.

It also has sd AND cf, so I'll be able to reuse all my cf-cards-stock-i-thought-useless !!

I wish that there exist a 3G-HSDPA cf card compatible with this unit.

As far as downclocking, I pretty much think that'll be possible, since it's based in the latest intel portable technology. I also think it could be feasible to just disconnect the HD and make it boot from SD !!

I'm really eager to see linux on this, even I realize that those units won't be available in general until aprox. 6months from now; another wait, but I'm already used to wait for the wifi-bluetooth-zaurus anyway !

indeed, a CF slot is a valuable commodity in this case. Could use a CF to PCMCIA adaptor and a 3G card in that, or of course use USB 3g adaptor.

if the internal hdd is PATA, then could use PATA to CF adaptor for solid state operation if you can't stretch to a true SSD flash "hard drive".

I hope that conics decide to sell these!

Be sure to check out the link to the hands-on report by PC World.
Maybe my definition of "hands-on" is different. The above report is just a regurgitation of the specs fluffed out with some prose. There's nothing "hands-on" about it.

A hands-on review is available at

http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2007/05/17/pr...ujitsu_fmv8240/

the first picture reminds me when I first saw the zaurus c700; I thought: K it's here now; let's wait for the next version (first ones always have some problems) and go with it!

Looking at the specs, it resemble Zaurus's hardware with the latest graphic card and built-in mobile phone modem.

indeed, the followup updates when they fix whatever niggles are present should be a winner... at the very least I'll wait until there are enough around that I could be confident it will work reliably. I'm glad I didn't buy an OQO for example.

There are no telephony features in it, plus it doesn't have BT nor IRDA so connecting to a phone is difficult without further hardware. Although it does come with a couple of features that are probably useless to linux users until someone can reverse engineer the hardware - a fingerprint recogniser and a USB lock.

And it's got the obligatory (windoze only) CTRL-ALT-DEL key smile.gif

I think that's the problem: once all those twitter updates drained your battery, you are not able to make an important call.

Since I consider the ability to call a #1 priority, my preference is to have a phone always ready for calling, and other stuff for web use.

What I considered, given the price of some hanset, is to strip one and hard-attach-wired it to the usb port, so it always goes with you. A brute-DIY usb 3g modem, I know.

Hrm.
So tempting, so tempting.

I've built a mockup, though, and the Fujitsu definitely will NOT fit
in my pants' pocket. Close, but, NOPE.

I'm going to try with the FlipStart dimensions, next- see if that's any better.
They're pretty similar in total volume, but FS has an option for a mini-battery
that's reputed to be much improved.

FS users report that its noisy. I'm wondering about heat.
Any Zaurers tried one yet?

Still, as always, one big concern is its battery capacity. The spec sheet says the battery is 7.2V 2600mAh ( http://www.fmworld.net/biz/fmv/product/har...u8240/spec.html ), with power consumption from 9W to 40W, compared to Zaurus C3x00 which is 1800 mAh and uses 3.2W (C1000 eating 2.7V because of the lack of microdrive?). I begin to doubt the real power usage.

With the microdrive in my 3200 swapped with a CF, i am sure my Terrier can get much more juice than this beast. Plus ... i am carrying around a damned cheap (~ 10 euros) PSP emergency charger which is only less than half the size of my Z but has an extremely high capacity (9800 mAh!!), together with my Logic-3 retractable PSP USB Charger/Data cable, practically there is no need to worry about battery usage for my Z.

I believe there is another line "7.2V 5200mAh" in

"リチウムイオン 7.2V 2600mAh(内蔵バッテリパック)、
7.2V 5200mAh(内蔵バッテリパック(L))"

I got a feeling it means you get 7hrs only with an extended batt, something you can already do with some models of Sony and Fujitsu. Most sub-notebooks can prob do 5~7 hrs with the right batt, unfortunately most companies do not release extended batts, and even when they do, they cost a bomb.

Posted for sale already..... but no price ?!?

http://www.dynamism.com/u8240/main.shtml

It looks like the men with the fingers in all UMPC pies, the Dynamism gang, have secured a deal for the Fujitsu UMPC. I've just seen the info come through on their RSS feed. They will be offering two versions of the Fujitsu UMPC from Japan. One with XP Pro (English) and one with Vista Business (English.)

It will be available in June with either 20 or 40GB HDD (depending on which part of their site you read!) but there is no pricing yet. I assume this will be a Japanese import and will be offered with pricing that reflects the import and software re-install costs.


Lets hope it sells for under a grand? laugh.gif
