The new commodity actualized further scantness and lightness the world most thin as a successor aircraft of the tablet PC which actualizes most light weight, we strengthened portable characteristic ease of use. In addition although scantness and lightness are pursued basic efficiency former ratio approximately 1.6 times

(Note 1) with improved largely with, e.g., in CPU ultralow voltage edition Intel (R) Pentium (R) M processor 733 (1.10GHz), MOBILITY (TM) RADEON (TM) 7500 is loaded in the graphic accelerator. Furthermore, parallax minimum conversion and you said that you look at the entry and the paper to the paper, the enlargement of the visible angle with high angle of visibility liquid crystal panel adoption and the adjustment etc. of slide condition of the pen with the adoption of the thin-shaped LCD cover glass due to, we pursued "the use impression of the paper" more.

With these strengthening, as for the new product, ease of use such as presentation present cheapness with the holdings substantially improvement. In addition, the presentation which uses animated picture there is no stress and has become operation possible. Especially, we have become, the commodity which such as sale is suited for wide use/stock management and medical electronic chart and diplomacy business terminal by the fact that light weight conversion and writing taste improves.

1. Thickness approximately 27% thin 11mm (Note 2), weight approximately 11% light 885g (Note 3) actualizes pursuit of scantness lightness in comparison with the commodity until recently. Because of this, with holdings such as sale/stock management and presentation furthermore showing ease of use in job.

2.  In strengthening CPU the basic efficiency Pentium M-733 (1.1AGHz), in the graphic accelerator MOBILITY (TM) RADEON (TM) actualizing the basic efficiency improvement of former ratio approximately 1.6 times by the fact that 7500 is loaded. Especially former ratio approximately 2 times (Note 1) actualizing efficiency improvement in regard to graphic efficiency. In addition improvement of battery drive time (Note 4) it actualizes, strengthening basic efficiency as Mobile PC. In addition, there is no stress and depending upon the improvement of CPU and graphic efficiency, business becomes possible, also expression power of the presentation and the like which uses the animated picture in user improves. Furthermore, as the above-mentioned battery drive time is strengthened, 2 batteries simultaneously the charge possible battery charger (Note 5) by the fact that you use, even in the long haul use with Mobile which is supposed corresponding possibility.

3.  Actualization "of the use impression of the paper" until recently similar to the machine, by the fact that the thin-shaped tempered glass of approximately 0.5mm is adopted for protective layer, it shortens parallax of the nib and display to approximately half in comparison with the acrylic board adoption product, actualizing the input whose strange feeling is little. In addition, as by the fact that the finishing film is stuck on the thin-shaped tempered glass, being taken included such as illumination is lightened, when writing to the paper, actualizing the use impression the way. Furthermore, while the top and bottom/actualizing the wide field of vision angle left and right respectively 120 degrees the high angle of visibility liquid crystal panel with adoption, looking at the picture with the group of people it corresponds to also previous arrangement use. In addition up-to-date Windows (R) XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 it is loaded promptly by the fact that, the improvement of character recognition ratio and input place is not locked and making the input panel favorite in the place indicate such as possibility, ease of use substantially improvement
