And like with the U904, the T904 gets introduced first by Markus Seifart, Product Marketing Manager at Fujitsu. He was so nice to present us interesting facts on the new T904:
The T904 also uses Sharp’s newest IGZO-technology in its display, giving it a better runtime and making a higher resolution possible. However, the T904′s resolution will be 2.560 x 1.440 px, which is a little bit lower than the U904′s.
The touchscreen will be powered by a dual-digitizer. This means that you can use a (special) pen or your finger on the device and that it can recognize which input method you’re currently using.
The T904 provides a slot to put in the pen. Additional to that, you can fix a wire to the pen and the T904 to avoid losing it.
Like the U904, the T904 also has a bigger touchpad.
The Windows-button (which is required by Windows 8 and 8.1) is positioned in the right bottom of the display which makes it more useful in the tablet mode.
You can turn around the display in both directions and even make a tablet out of the T904. In this mode, the keyboard is of course turned off.
On the left side, there is an USB 3.0-port, a card-reader and the power interface (behind the lock).
On the right side, you can find a combined audio port (in and out), an USB 3.0-port, a HDMI port, the power switch, an Ethnernet port and the slot for the pen.
As with the U904, the Ethernet-port of the T904 needs to be pulled out in case you need it. This solution avoids the need of an adapter and keeps the notebook compliant with the Ultrabook requirments.
As for the battery runtime, the current estimate of Fujitsu is approx. 8.5 hours. The price is starting at 1.600€ which makes the aim of the device clear: professional business customers who need powerful and beautiful hardware combined with great software.

Stay tuned for the next article! It will cover the LIFEBOOK S904, a notebook which runs incredible 24 hours on battery.
