Fujitsu adds integrated HSUPA to U810, T2010

Fujitsuu810Fujitsu just dropped an integrated 3G radio into both a UMPC and Lifebook Tablet PC for speedy connectivity on AT&T’s network. Both the U810 UMPC and the Lifebook T2010 tablet get the option, with MSRPs at $999 and $1,499 respectively. (Note: the 3G option adds $200 to both devices; thanks Dan!) The HSUPA radio will fall back to EDGE or GPRS as needed and should get you speeds around 1.4 Mbps down and 500- to 800 kbps back up when in a coverage area.Many folks swear by integrated radios for their WWAN connectivity, but I’m still sold on a USB solution like my USB 727. The definite downside is having a USB device sticking out of my computer or UMPC, but the advantage of having a 3G solution for every computer I own far outweighs the negative for me. If you’re a single-device owner that doesn’t change devices more than every 18 to 24 months, integrated 3G might be the better solution.
