Choice is always good, and Japan’s Fujitsu has a new seven-inch Android tablet to add to the selection. The Stylistic M350/CA2 will run for six hours, and weighs in at 420 grams. It boasts a Wide Super VGA (WSVGA) display with 1024×600 pixel resolution. Interestingly, users can select between a numeric keypad input, QWERTY input, and hand-written input. Perhaps the hand-written input will need the use of a stylus; hopefully more details on that will emerge. The Stylistic will work perfectly as an e-book reader, a sales terminal, and for retail stores looking to display their catalogs. It will also benefit the business person, since it includes a Bluetooth v2.1 data connection, and a miniHDMI for an image output to projectors. This new tablet will be available in Japan in mid-February. Skip over the break for the full press release.
