Fujitsu TH40-D-Convert DVD Movies to Fujitsu TH40-D Easily

Not sure if Fujitsu is as famous and having the good fame in US & Europe as inAsia. But I do have a good impression with this brand as I use its PC from last year:  Elegance, steady, beautiful shape…

As tablets are hit this year, how can Fujitsu miss this trend? Fujitsu announced its tablet : TH40-D would be released in May, but now we know it is delayed.

Some fans would think why Fujitsu still keeps windows 7 OS with the tablet, why not upgrading to the latest windows 8? Fujitsu delays the shipping date or it also is waiting for the latest window OS like us, too?

Who knows? That is interesting. We just keep looking forward.

According to what Fujitsu announced in May, we can know some specifications for this tablet:

  • Keyboard with 87 keys (Japanese layout, key stroke 1.4mm)
  • Atom Z670 (1.50GHz) CPU
  • Intel SM35 Express chip set
  • 1GB RAM
  • 120GB HDD
  • IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth 3.0+HS
  • 0.3MP web cam
  • Two USB 2.0 ports, one HDMI interface, one SD card slot
  • 6 hours battery life
  • Size: 274×188×17.4mm, weight: 1.1kg

Yes, a keyboard will be with the tablet, a thin slide-out. Laptop hybrid tablet has a screen 10.1-inch 1024 × 600 that can be quickly modified from the tablet form factor netbook devices. You may be reminded Asus Eee Transformer like me, right?

How to convert DVD movies to Fujitsu TH40-D,enjoy DVD movies freely on Fujitsu TH40-D any time?All you need is Any DVD Cloner Platinum.

Indeed there are similar i.e. Slider Samsung but a new hybrid tablet device running Windows 7 and powered by Intel Atom Processor Z760 1.5 GHz and integrated GMA 600 graphics subsystem.

It weighs just 1.1kg and still has a fairly slim profile of just 17.4mm, even with the addition of the full QWERTY keyboard. Its also fitted with a tiny trackpad positioned just to the right of the spacebar, capable of playing 1080p HD video, comes with 1GB of RAM, a 120GB 4200 rpm HDD, Bluetooth 3.0 and WiFi and a 10.1” multitouch screen,

Wonder if TH40-D would supports video files and audio files playback or not but no results I can find. But that should not be a problem since it is considered to be one of the basic functions with tablets and multimedia players nowadays. Especially other competitors’ tablets can do so. The real problem should be how many kinds of video formats and audio formats can TH40-D play?

I guess video formats like .MP4, .AVI, MPEG, WMV , and audio formats like .MP3, WMA should be played in TH40-D.

Watching movies any time becomes easier than before with tablets nowadays. Just need to convert favorite DVD or blu-ray movies to the video formats acceptable by the tablets, and then freely enjoy movies on the move. With higher resolution, larger screen size, that is better enjoyment than with normal and low resolution portable MP4 players.

DVD to Toshiba Thrive (AT100) Tablet Converter

Toshiba AT100 has replaceable battery, also has a removable, rubberized back cover that can be bought in different colors. Behind that cover is a battery that can be replaced; making this the first tablet we’ve seen that allows users to carry an extra battery.

It is unique.

AT100 is running android 3.01 and should be upgraded later. It comes with 16GB internal storage, a 1GHz ARM 7 processor and 1GB RAM, 5MP rear and 2MP front cameras (with no flash on either).

AT100 feels hefty in comparison with some of the other tablets with a similar weight. The balance of its internal components made it feel heavier than models such as HP Touch and Motorola Xoom, which also weight 1.6 pounds.

Besides, it has some hardware weaknesses, including tinny speakers, a good but not outstanding display, and a bulky, heavy design.

However, some users also said that weight is not an issue with tablets. In fact, how long will you really hold the tablet for a day? Mostly should make it sit on your lap or chest in bed, using the cover/stand to prop up.

Pros

Removable battery, replaceable back cover

Sturdy design

SDXC Card slot, plus USB, HDMI, and mini-USB ports

Cons

Feels heavy, and stands thicker than most

Stereo speakers lack fullness, sound tinny

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc – Stylish,Slim,Stunning

Stylish, impossibly thin , curvy yet painfully thin design

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is stunning enough for the first impression. Gorgeous shape and large screen makes it impressive even for the first time.

This is a phone with everything you normally expect from Android – GPS, WiFi, sensors a-plenty, Bluetooth 2.1, 480 x 854 pixel screen with multi-touch, a 1GHz CPU, FM radio, digital compass and HDMI out. it’s an LED-backlit TFT LCD screen. This means that, although it doesn’t offer the eye-piercing brightness of an AMOLED display, it delivers more subdued, accurate colours. Very usable outdoors in direct light.

Turn the screen on, bright and sharp.Icons are clear and well defined thanks to Ericsson’s reality display technology, whatever that maybe, with nothing in the way of pixilation on show.

SCREEN:

Solid-feeling 4.2-inch massive crystal-clear display fills much of the front of the phone. The 480×854-pixel screen doesn’t match the iPhone 4‘s 640×960-pixel display, but it’s still sharp and beautiful to look at.

 Compared to the 4-inch, 480×800-pixel Super AMOLED screen on the Google Nexus S, the Arc’s display looked noticeably sharper and clearer.

With the help of Sony’s Bravia Engine picture enhancement technology, the Arc’s LED backlit screen looks as stunning as any phone screen we’ve seen, including the iPhone 4’s Retina display.

SHAPE: Wafer-thin, curving, large

The handset itself is only marginally longer than the old HTC Desire-and slimmer.In fact, you get an HTC Desire HD-size screen in the body of a much smaller, slimmer phone. 9mm is the thickest part of the phone while only 8.7mm at the middle.With the curving design, it is easy to hold even the phone is quite large.

The back of the Xperia Arc is simple, with its curved case lending it quite an air of style. it sits nicely in your hand thanks to that curve and feels very ergonomic. The slot at the bottom is for the external speaker (next to the Sony Ericsson logo) and there’s the 8.1 megapixel camera at the other end with the flash. This phone will also do continual focus while you’re recording video, a great addition.

Buttons Distribution:

Sony Ericsson’s standard selection of three physical buttons – Back, Home and Menu

They’re thin and sit just at the bottom of the main screen. Below the angled bottom section you can just see the lanyard loop and microphone.

Buttons are solid silvery plastic, plus there is a piercing white light shining through the gaps between them to help guide your thumb in the dark.

Top of the phone:  a microHDMI output hidden behind a little dust stopper, Using this you can output your HD videos to TV and other equipment. It’s a fabulous screen on which to watch movies and also to browse photos; if you fancy watching on a bigger screen, the HDMI output lets you go large too.

Video formats that can be playable on Arc:MP4/H.263/H.264/WMV-How to convert DVD movies to Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc ?Try Any DVD Cloner Platinum/Any DVD Cloner Platinum for Mac

 Power button is recessed to stop accidental presses- so tiny it can be a little hard to find.

On the right is the microUSB connector for charging and syncing plus the volum up / down buttons and, way down in the bottom corner, the camera button.

It is a delicate camera key. Press and hold from anywhere in the phone to initiate the camera, then press down slightly to start focus.

Weaknesses

May look gorgeous, but the plastic rear panel feels flimsy

The 3 buttons below the screen feel insubstantial

The phone is large, does not make much sense to have anything poking out of the side
