When it comes to the tablet market, the two main operating systems would be Android from Google and iOS from Apple. Microsoft’s Windows? Well, let us say that it has yet to make an impact, although the upcoming Microsoft Surface tablet does seem to throw the race wide open yet again. However, in the mean time, we will just have to be placated with Windows 7 running on tablets. Case in point, the Fujitsu Stylistic Q552 which will see off last year’s model, the Stylistic Q550, by sporting an Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor, the Intel GMA 3600 graphics chipset that does HD video playback, a 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display with a 160 degree viewing angle, a capacitive touchscreen display, and an active digitizer and digital pen.
Budget-permitting, you will be able to select from either a 32GB or 64GB solid state drive, where the Q552 will be accompanied by 2GB RAM, 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, USB 2.0 support, an HDMI connector, and an SD memory card slot. Want to carry out video calls on Skype with this? Not a problem, thanks to the front-facing VGA camera and a 3-megapixel camera with auto-focus located right on the back.
