Hands-on the new Fujitsu STYLISTIC Q702 Windows 8 hybrid

Fujitsu India announced the launch of its new Windows 8 device, the STYLISTIC Q702, at a press event on Thursday. Courtesy of Mobile Gyaan, we were invited to attend the event at a plush hotel in Mumbai. The device was unveiled by Mr. Alok Sharma, Country Manager at Fujitsu India, and Mr. Ladislav Orenic, Senior Sales Director at Fujitsu Technology Solutions.

The STYLISTIC Q702 is a hybrid tablet/laptop convertible geared towards the enterprise market. The Q702 comes packed with a 3rd-generation Intel Core i5/i3 processor with vPro technology, and the Pro edition of Windows 8. It features up to 4 gigs of RAM and up to 256 GB of disk space. The tablet docks into a docking station which incorporates a keyboard as well as a second battery. Fujitsu promises up to 4 hours of battery life, and the 4-cell battery in the docking station would add up to 5 more hours, taking the combined battery life up to 9 hours.

The Q702 sports an 11.6-inch IPS panel multi-touch display optimized for touch as well as pen input. Text and graphics appear very crisp even though the display has a resolution of only 1366 x 768 pixels (the same as the Surface RT). The display has a matte finish as opposed to the glossy finish most devices have these days. Being a matte display, you won't have that problem of seeing reflections of bright lights, which other tablet and laptop screens have, and we're assuming that it will work quite well in direct sunlight too.

Other key features of the Q702 include:

  • 5 Megapixel rear camera and HD front camera
  • USB 3.0, USB 2.0, HDMI and SD/SDHC/SDXC ports on the tablet
  • Ethernet and VGA ports on the dock
  • Accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer and ambient light sensors
  • Optional 3G, 4G/LTE support

We did a quick hands-on and felt that the construction of the device was pretty sturdy and the finish was done quite well. The display did a great job of minimizing the reflections. The touch experience was very smooth and there was no instance of any lag. We tested the pen input and it works very well. Our only gripe was that the tablet and its dock didn't fit together as securely as we would've liked.

As said earlier, this device is targeted at mobile business professionals and the pricing also backs this fact as the Q702 will be priced upwards of Rs. 65,000. Overall, it is a feature-packed device, and the variety of connectivity ports, integrated TPM chip and fingerprint reader, and included stylus should appeal to a business professional.
