Fujitsu PC, a subsidiary of Japanese conglomerate Fujitsu, has released an upgraded version of its Stylistic LT P-600 tablet computer. Weighing 2.65 pounds, the new system comes with a 600MHz low-voltage Pentium III, 15GB hard drive and up to 256MB of memory. It also is available with two types of screens: a regular color LCD or a Transflective SVGA color LCD, which is easier to view outdoors. Prices start at $3,599.
