TOKYO, Oct 24, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu Limited and Fujitsu Client Computing Limited today announced the release of two new enterprise tablet models in the Fujitsu Tablet ARROWS Tab series of Windows tablets, the ARROWS Tab Q508/SE, for the education sector, and the ARROWS Tab Q508/SB, for general enterprise use. Both models, available in Japan from today, offer even greater ease of use based on the customer opinions and needs Fujitsu has learned from experience.
These products continue to offer enhanced toughness and reliability with water and dust resistance(1) in the same compact form factor as previous models, while being even more lightweight with a greater screen brightness and improved screen film to make them even easier to use. In the classroom, Fujitsu has made its education model, the ARROWS Tab Q508/SE, easier to use by offering such features as enhanced pen functionality so as to imitate the sensation of pencil on paper, as well as by offering device diagnostic tools to keep lessons running smoothly. Moreover, the ARROWS Tab Q508/SB, aimed at enterprise use, can be custom ordered to include a touch fingerprint sensor.
Main Features of the New Products
1. Lighter weight owing to finer components, improved visibility for the LCD screen
Both models have thinner touch panels and LCD glass, slimmed down chassis cover, and miniaturized components that connect to the keyboard or cradle. This cut weight by about 5% compared to previous models(2).
In addition, visibility outdoors and in other bright spaces has been improved in each model by making the LCD screen brighter by about 35% compared to previous models(3), and by improving the screen film.

2. Pen writing sensation that maximizes ease of use when studying
The ARROWS Tab Q508/SE education model offers enhanced functionality for the pen used when studying, improving the writing sensation by shortening the time from pen input until that input is reflected on the screen and by reducing the visible gap between the pen tip and actual display of the line.
3. Safe and secure working environment
The ARROWS Tab Q508/SB enterprise model, in addition to improved basic functions, is also able to be customized to include a touch fingerprint sensor. This option provides a safe and secure work environment for a variety of tasks.

4. More convenient capabilities
Both models now feature USB Type-C to connect to a wide variety of devices and this is expected to become a more common feature. The port is reversible so users can connect devices without concern about which way it is facing. The new models also offer video output so they can be connected to external audiovisual devices via an adapter. A light and thin keyboard featuring a wired LAN connection that supports Wakeup On LAN(4) is also available as an optional dedicated accessory.
