    Because Fujitsu does not really advertise their products, like HP or Lenovo does.
    Other producers announce their products a few months before release, present them in public showrooms, and spend a lot of money as sponors, and so on.
    Fujitsu just releases the product, hopes that they made a good product which does not need an advertising and tries to sell it to companies, schools, ... and make there the more direct advertising.
    (Just look at the Slate ST6012)

    And is Tablet PC review not a top review site for tablet PCs?
    Fujitsu LifeBook T5010 First Look Review
    Fujitsu LifeBook T5010 Review
    Grimnir's Exhaustive T5010 Review (TPR should add this review to the user reviews section, because it is much more informative than Tiffany's review)
    (I just don't know why TPR hasn't added the reviews to the T5010 in their database)

    or GottabeMobile, which made two ink shows:
    GBM InkShow: Fujitsu T5010
    GBM InkShow: 3-Way Tablet PC Comparison

    But yes, I have to agree, Fujitsu products get reviewed, they look good, finished.
    Compared to other tablet PCs there aren't that many reviews.
    But hey, just look at the new Apple, almost every day was a new macro picture of the not really new Apple notebook, almost over a month long. Good marketing, that's all. But well Apple needs this marketing to keep the cult about their products alive.

    Maybe it's also because Fujitsu is too open. Just look at the homepage, you find almost every technical question about the T5010 answered on the Fujitsu homepage, if you look at the Lenovo or HP homepage you find almost no informations (e.g. search for the capacity the batteries have) Maybe that's why other products need that many reviews, or that's why many people search for reviews about those products, because they don't know everything about it.

    But yes, a bit more hype about Fujitsu tablets would be nice, but maybe it's not worth it for Fujitsu.


    But on the other hand I also want to mention that the Fujitsu Tablets are popular, they just don't get reviewed that much, but sold. Just look at the forum. The T5010 gets discussed, the HP2730p not, and the Lenovo X200T also not really.

    Mostly marketing. They don't have the marketing budget of the Dells and HPs of the computer world. Check out who is advertising on their sites and magazines and you will likely see a correlation between the reviews and the ads.

    marketing and the fact that its starting price is almost $800-1000 over the price of machines like the tx2500.

    The machines that are more popular tend to be cheaper.

    I think it is the cost.

    With a little scratching of the surface (eg visiting these very fujitsu boards) you will find a pretty satisfied customer base, albeit smaller than hp and dell, as mentioned above.

    Well i agree with you

    and if fujitsu spends more on marketing and advertsing it will coz them more funds thus ... increasing its price....albeit fujitu is the best
