Preview: Fujitsu Stylistic M532 10.1″ Android 4.0 tablet
Over the last months, there’s been no shortage of announcements concerning upcoming Android 4.0 tablets, to a degree that it became a little hard to find differences between the various devices touted by manufacturers. So here we are, bringing you yet another Ice Cream Sandwich loaded tablet, this time from Fujitsu. So, lets see what the Fujitsu Stylistic M532 Android 4.0 tablet can bring to the table?
At first glance, Fujitsu’s Stylistic M532, while impressive to look at, offers no immediate indication of its superiority over the slew of other similar tablets announced or available on the market. The M532 features a “standard” 1280×800 resolution display, protected by a 10-inch Gorilla Glass screen. The tablet features Fujitsu’s so-called Soft Grip back, which, as the name suggests, makes it easy to hold. At just 8.6 mm thickness, the Stylistic M532 is a proud member of the ultra-thin club, weighing a meager 560 grams.
Other specifications include:
- 1.4 Ghz NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor
- 1 GB DDR3 RAM
- Android 4.0 OS
- 10.1-inch multi-touch capacitive touchscreen
- 16GB/32GB built in memory, expandable to 32GB with microSD
- 8 MP with flash rear camera, 2 MP front camera
- 802.11 b/g/n
- Mini USB port, HDMI out port
- 9.5 hour battery usage available
As you can see, the excellent specs position the Fujitsu Stylistic M532 as a direct competitor to the ASUS Transformer Prime and the iPad 3. What makes this tablet stand out is the fact that Fujitsu clearly markets it as a business tablet. It comes with a free one year subscription to Norton Tablet Security and Absolute CompuTrace, to lock it in case it goes missing, and the ability to enable full disk encryption.
Office apps are standard, the Stylistic supporting Citrix, VMWare, and Microsoft Virtual Desktop right out of the box, allowing remote access to your work system. It also includes the NitroDesk Touchdown e-mail client, which is a secure app for managing your corporate Exchange email accounts. What points this tablet might lose on style and appearance, it makes up with the perfect combination of apps to meet any office goer’s needs.
The Fujitsu Stylistic 532 provides a lot of nice features that will appeal to the consumers in need of a portable business platform. The high-end specs naturally bring along an equally high price tag of $630, but the M532 is still cheaper than other similar high-end devices (I’m looking at you, $780 ASUS Transformer Prime).
