Fujitsu has unveiled what it claims to be the world’s smallest tablet convertible PC, in addition to a new notebook PC with a bi-directional swivel display. The LifeBook U810 mini and LifeBook T2010 convertible notebook are both designed for those on-the-go, and their looks may turn some heads too.

The palm-size U810 weighs about 0.70kg and has a 5.6in LED display that swivels 180° and can be laid flat on top of its QWERTY keyboard, with the screen then operated either by touch or by a stylus. It runs on an Intel A110 CPU and promises to give up to 5.5 hours of computing time with a standard four cell battery.

Fujitsu has also built a 40GB hard drive and 1GB of DDR2 memory into the device, and equipped it with Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and wireless connectivity over 802.11 standards a, b and g. Both models also have a fingerprint sensor for encrypting files with a single, err, swipe.

The larger T2010 model has a 12.1in LED-backlit display and can be operated as either a traditional notebook or as a slate tablet, with a stylus. And in case all that display spinning goes to your head, then the keyboard is also spill-resistant.

The machine is slightly heavier than the U810, at 1.58kg. However, it runs off an Intel Core 2 Duo U7600 CPU, with 4GB of DDR2 memory and is equipped with up to a 160GB hard drive.

Fujitsu’s U810 notebook will be available in the US next month for around $1,000 and the T2010 is available now in the US for around $1,600.
