First I heard that this model would have a pen. Good news. Hopefully, it's in a silo. 2GB Ram? Gaaahhhhh! C'mon Fuji! This unit should have 4GB Ram, a 64 Bit OS and Pro standard. At least, this should be the best built 8" tablet on the market.
Biggest battery I've seem yet in an 8" tablet. Should satisfy those that discount the AVN8 due to battery life.
Any guesses on the price. My guess is $499 and higher wouldn't shock me from Fujitsu. I wish fujitsu would have went ultra premium and slapped a Core m in there with an SSD. As it is now I doubt I'd sidegrade to it. The build quality is likely firmer, but it probably isn't as openable.
Nice to see others jumping in the 8" penable market. More options and a sign of continued interest from the OEMs.
Sadly the two articles are not necessarily contradictory... the first article says pen and touch input. It makes no claim to an active digitizer. To the uninitiated an included capacitive stylus may qualify as pen input.
Surprised to learn the latest Acer Aspire Switch 10 supports Synaptic and works with the DVP stylus. It's not 8 inches, but it is a budget model and may indicate ongoing interest in providing penabled screens in more affordable and smaller tabs.
Release for Mid January 2015......so not only is Fuji late to the 8-inch party by a full year.....in that year filled with plenty of 8 inch tablets.....they felt no further significant changes or updates were needed. That in itself is almost more disappointing then the lack of proper pen input.
