    Hey, Fujitsu, I think you got the wrong OS.. it’s Windows PHONE 7..not Windows 7.

    WTF, why not WP7?

      Why not w7 AND wp7? It’s obvious w7 phone is a niche market at this point, but there are use cases (mostly non-consumer types) for this kind of device.

    Now I’d like to see one of these running Windows 8 when it arrives.

    This is ridiculous, I’m sorry but who would want a phone with a computer OS? And the battery, 2 hours on Windows 7! This is ridiculous

    No They have the right OS name on this. This is a “Windows 7″ Phone. Hence the Atom Processor and such. While it is kinda a niche market, I cannot say I don’t want one.

    Now if they could pair it with Windows Phone 7 as the Phone OS (which they can’t since they are using an x86 processor) that would be a awesome device.

    Still, there is something to be said for a phone sized PC with full Windows 7 on it. 

    Also they are making a WP7 phone for the Mango release so don’t get your panties in a bunch. They can make more than 1 unique device if they want to.

    I’ve got to say, that looks like a pretty stupid device. Just use WP7 like every other NORMAL phone manufacturer who wants a phone with Microsoft software on it does!

    I think this is obviously geared to a very small market niche of business users who need a full OS on the go. So lets not bother making fun of Fujitsu for not using a phone OS as I doubt they are expecting massive sales from this device.

    Here is a perfect example of the difference between Microsoft and Apple: Apple managers would NEVER allow such a Frankenstein creature to be born. It dilutes the overall design push for this form factor and invites pundits to scream “FAIL!”. For the sake of exploiting a potential tiny market segment (people who want a full OS on a small phone) they risk brand/design/reputation diffusion. Tsk, tsk.

      Freedom of choice has positives and negatives. When you sell 400 million Windows 7 licenses, some OEMs will deliver successful innovation, some will not. Let the market decide.

    • Guest

      You are right–Apple would NEVER allow such thing. Their platform is closed and restricts innovation.
      The other platforms (Windows, Chrome, Android, Linux) are designed to be more open and supportive of innovation.

      We’ll just have to see whether an open or a closed approach is a better strategy, over time…but things didn’t work out for the closed model in the PC era.  Smartphones and tablets are still VERY, VERY early in their development; although Apple has had great success so far, the race is not even fully started.

    You have to take into account this is for the Japanese market.  The love tiny PCs, and measure how good a phone is by the number of features that it has.  They will like this in Japan.

    What a terrible idea…

  • Joe05

    why?????

  • João Pedro

    Why would I want a phone with 2 hours battery life? Seriously, WTF Fujitsu?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jairo-Luciano-Alves/100002545369889 Jairo Luciano Alves

      For the same reason why you could want a lightweight netbook with 3 or 4 hours of battery life…
      Imagine people who travel a lot, they could easily take this to a one day trip and use it mainly plugged in. or as a hub for files, internet or slides presentations.. Anyway, it should be fine when W8 comes. Seems like a new era of computers is arising. And I hope so. :)

  • Kanelp

    So what is the other Phone OS that is on this system?

  • http://twitter.com/tyw7 Thu Win

    I think the biggest drawback is malwares.  You would need a malware software as it is running WIn7.

    Also, Win7′s interface is not really suitable for touchscreens.  Its really fiddly

  • Sfleming111

    This is not ridiculous. This is actually very useful to a lot of people. You are not really expected to use Windows 7 as your OS to make/recieve calls or listen to music when you are on the bus,train etc..

    But when you are traveling and have access to a kiosk, you can hook this up to a monitor and bluetooth keyboard and you have a fully portable PC.

  • AR

    Guys, THIS is the future of smartphones (and laptops)!
    It’s just about 2-4 years ahead of time (but Japan is anyway a different market). Smartphones will be your laptop if you hook it up to an external monitor. Windows and Windows Phone are supposed to become ONE OS with the next version of Windows (Win8 successor). Just imagine Win8 on this device to get an idea where the industry is going…

    • Guest

      True, which is the reason they should’ve waited with this until W8 releases…

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Adam-Sadler/525356281 Adam Sadler

    Wow what a good idea. I think people are missing the point here! you would use the symbian os for the phone and use the windows 7 as a desktop when in the office with an external monitor, keyboard etc! this is the future just need to see Windows Phone 7 and windows 7. Windows phone as the phone os and windows 7 as the desktop pc you can take with you.

    Just ahead of it’s time!

      I read the article and looked at the video. This doesn’t have WP7 on it. It’s another phone os. Someone said that it was symbian.

    It is interesting to see that the processing power for these phones starts to rival PCs processing power and capability.  Windows 8 did not increase the computing requirements.  It is possbile that Windows 8 and Window Phone 8 become one and the same.  Press a button and get the nice tile mode or switch it to a computer.  Maybe the device can be inserted into the side of a monitor and you have a computer with full capability.  Things are converging and the ability to combine technology becomes possible.  For instance, Microsoft’s SQL Azure makes databases on the web easilly possible for developers…a year ago this was impossible/very very difficult.  Mango is an evolution to Windows Phone 7.  Tango might be the convergence of Mango and Windows 8.  Possible…we’ll see how it looks and feels…if it feels ‘light’ and powerful and has a great battery life and all that…then that could be interesting for millions of customers.

  • BucksterMcgee

    “Windows® 7 battery life: ~2 hours in Windows 7 mode” …. I lol’d

    Well, the good new is if you buy this you might be able to put Windows 8 on it next year.

    Oh, is there any information on a GPU? Maybe I’m missing it, but I don’t see anything.

    I’m just curious because I have dozens of older games that would be awesome to have with me at any time… for 2 hours … as long as it was fully charged…. hmm

    Considering the workstyle of Japanese business people, I’m kinda able to see why they made it. It’s obviously not a private phone, maybe second or third business PC with phone function.
