Matte screen and Gorilla class don't have to be exclusive as the Toshiba Z20T shows.
Did not know the glass in the Z20T was Gorilla Glass. Wonder why there are not more matt tablets using it then. The Surface would really use something like that to make it more functional in difficult lighting. Overhead neon lights can be as bad as sunlight. Fuji's tempered matt glass is, IMO, the best in the business.
If I am not mistaken, Toshiba's Z20T uses some sort of factory-applied screen protector, but what matters is the end-result, matte screen and good pen performance. I don't care how anybody does it. Just do it!
I'm in love! Please tell us more about this wonderful device! How hard is it to pop it open and upgrade the SSD? What about RAM, is it upgradeable?
Information is a little scarce, but there is one Japanese review from ITMedia that offers a good overview of its specs and unique features:
A 11W Y series CPU (later models have Core U), a decently performing 256GB Samsung MZMTE256HMHP mSATA SSD (same as SP3), and Intel Wireless-AC 7260:
Surprisingly large 48Wh battery and pretty compact charger:
Pre-calibrated colorspace modes and 2560x1440 221ppi REGZA screen (I believe a unique Toshiba panel) :
Siloed stylus in addition to wider barrel pen:
Detachable, backlit bluetooth keyboard:
As for upgradeability, no hard confirmation but their are accessible screws on the PC portion:
All-in-all, still quite a 'lust-worthy' device, no?
EDIT: judging from the teardown of the dynabook KIRA V832, the mSATA SSD should be replaceable, but the RAM probably soldered:
@Marty many thanks! Very interesting device indeed - but lack of WWAN and 16GB RAM option are very disappointing; still, love the design!
Do you guys think FUJITSU will survive as its own brand?
Levono got rid of the IBM and NEC brands, although those names still ring the bell...
Hard to say. Latest news point to a survival of the brand, but Lenovo is taking charge:
I rather see FUJITSU joint-venture with SHARP, NEC, TOSHIBA, SONY or Panasonic...
LEVONO has very different design language, which I don't like. And most loyal IBM and NEC users don't like it, do they?
sad. its a done deal. Lenovo is taking over Fujitsu PC business.
Separate names with a comma.
