Fujitsu LifeBook U2010 3.5G revealed


Months before the Fujitsu LifeBook U2010 and its US variant, the U820, were deemed official, there was some talk that the mini convertible would be equipped with integrated 3.5G connectivity. An HSDPA-equipped "winged" version of its predecessor (U1010/U810) had already been available for quite some time, so it didn’t seem far-fetched that built-in 3.5G would be a standard feature of the U2010.

Yet when the Atom-powered UMPC was released, mobile broadband was nowhere to be found. Unlike the inconsistent inclusion of GPS, there were no instances of a 3.5G U2010 in any region.

Not until today, that is.


Fujitsu Singapore, Fujitsu Hong Kong, and Fujitsu Philippines now all have listings for a 3.5G version of the U2010. Pricing and availability are unknown.

From the specs sheet:

  • Embedded 3.5G (HSDPA) WWAN connectivity with dual antenna
  • Up to 7.2Mbps downlink
  • Supports tri-band UMTS (HSDPA): 850, 1900, and 2100 MHz
  • Supports quad-band EDGE/GPRS/GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz

A similarly spec’d version of the U820 is expected in Q1 2009.

Thanks, Frosty!
