Yesterday’s news of touch screen devices soon to be available with the Tablet Edition 2005 installed led me to immediately think of the Fujitsu P1500.  The P1500 is a sub-notebook with a convertible touch screen that Fujitsu originally shipped with plain old Windows XP.  Lora Heiny of What is New in Technology is at PDC and she has posted a photo of the P1500 running the Tablet Edition.  Oh my, this is fantastic!  Fujitsu has a press release announcing the shipping of the improved P1500 in October.

  1. Does anyone know the deal b/w active and passive digitizers?
    I’ve heard that the passive digis were junk and that for any kind of drawing you would need an active/wacom digi??

  2. I also loaded the Tablet PC OS onto the P1500. Although I agree that the Tablet OS enhances the usability of the touchscreen, it is really no where near a real (active digitizer) Tablet PC. Before the P1500, I had the Flybook, which has a better touchscreen imho but still not as good as the “real thing”.

    I will be selling my P1500 on ebay shortly, since I am moving to a Fujitsu convertible with a 12-inch screen, a real Tablet PC.
