Fujitsu LOOX U mini convertibles launched with Windows XP (U/C30, U/C40)

Fujitsu_loox_uc30Following the footsteps of Kohjinsha, Fujitsu announced today that its Atom-based LOOX U mini convertible series (Japanese variants of the LifeBook U2010/U820) would be expanding to include two new models. The LOOX U/C30 and U/C40 are cosmetically identical to their brethren in terms of design and screen size, but a big chunk of their insides is different. Unlike the other LOOX units and their regional counterparts, the new U/C30 and U/C40 have shunned Vista in favor of Windows XP.

The U/C30 further distinguishes itself from the pack by being configured with a slower processor (1.33GHz Atom Z520 vs. 1.6GHz Atom Z530) and without the front-facing webcam or 802.11/a support. Not surprisingly, then, this base model carries a lower price (89,800 yen).

Both versions are expected to be released in Japan on December 26th. Whether the US will follow suit and release an XP-flavored U820 is unknown.
