Fujitsu Lifebook Ultrabook 4G LTE is industry first


The ultrabook seems to be one of the main tech stories for this year and today we have some news for you of a new offering, the Lifebook Ultrabook from Fujitsu which will be the first ultrabook offering 4G LTE connectivity. On a first look we reckon this addition to the Fujitsu Lifebook line could be just what the doctor ordered.

This Lifebook Ultrabook was announced by Fujitsu at CeBIT today and the fact that it’s the industry’s first ultrabook to feature LTE will no doubt be a big selling point, although Fujitsu hasn’t come up with an official name yet. You can see a first look at the Lifebook Ultrabook in a video below this story. The design looks pretty impressive in a full magnesium housing and only 16mm thin at its narrowest point. It’s light in weight too at under 1.5kg, something that’s becoming increasingly important in the ultrabook market as every manufacturer competes against the MacBook Air.

Other additions, according to Laptop , include a 14-inch frameless display and as well as LTE there’s Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The Lifebook Ultrabook also has fingerprint authentication and TPM, FDE and ATP as security features. Engadget tells how this latest Fujitsu offering is aimed at the business market and also seemed pretty impressed with the almost edge-to-edge LCD display in a hands-on look and noted how it lies completely flush after being folded 180 degrees flat.

Other additional specs listed include a webcam, two USB 3.0 ports and a USB 2.0 port, Ethernet connector, HDMI port, SD card slot and headphone jack and it also looks as though there’s a backlit keyboard. This ultrabook really does seem to offer most things that could be needed but we should be able to clarify that soon as we hope to be hearing more on full specs and hopefully pricing in the next day or so. The Lifebook Ultrabook will come in red or silver color options and a release is indicated for early summer. You may also be interested in our previous look at a Fujitsu Lifebook 2013 concept.
