Fujitsu-Siemens Stylistic ST6012: long live the slate PC!

Stylisticst6012It’s rare to see a new slate Tablet PC hitting the airwaves these days, so this news should be shouted from the rooftops: there’s a new Stylistic in the works. The ST6012 is a modernized version that I expect will replace the 501x line, which has been around for two years or so. The 3.5-pounder with digitizer offers a 12.1-inch WXGA display and uses a 1.4 GHz Ultra-Low Voltage Intel Core 2 Duo CPU. Like many full-sized portable computers these days, you can spec the 5200 RPM drive at 120-, 160-, or 320-GB… that’s assuming a 64 GB SSD doesn’t have enough space for you. Connectivity comes in a choice of an Atheros 802.11 b/g card or you can go with Intel solution for 802.11 a/g/n.Fujitsu-Seimens says the pre-installed OS is a “TwinLoad” of Windows XP Tablet Edition and Vista Business, although I wouldn’t think this is a dual-boot solution. Instead, I’m thinking that you choose which operating system you want out of the box: one is installed and one is blown away, perhaps? There are two DIMM slots for memory so you can pop two 2 GB RAM modules in there for 4 GB of total memory. I don’t see any battery life claims, but there’s a second battery option available: 7800 mAh / 84.24 W/hr. No word on price yet either. Any slate users salivating over this?(via GottaBeMobile)
