Main Features of the New Products
1. ARROWS Tab Q507/PE, a 10.1-inch tablet designed for ease of use in classroom environments
Fujitsu used elastomer in the four corners of this 10.1-inch wide tablet to make it slip-resistant, resulting in a safe design that effectively prevents the device from being dropped. To make it easier for younger students to carry and operate, the keyboard was made lighter, weighing approximately 365g. The opening angle between the keyboard and display has been narrowed from 150 degrees in previous models to a maximum of 125 degrees, making for a structure that is difficult to tip over.
The attached pen, which analyzes variations in friction, approximates the feel of writing on paper for an improved writing experience. In addition, for use in physical education lessons in mind, through enhanced water resistant features (IPX5/7/8), including the ability to withstand chlorinated pool water, it can be safely used even during swimming lessons.
In addition, a number of other features make it easy to use in classroom environments, such as a microphone installed in the upper part of the display, which makes it easy to record one’s own or someone else’s voice, or the speaker built into the front screen-side of the unit, which makes it easy to hear the audio when playing videos.
2. Full line of models running the latest Windows 10 Anniversary Update
All 24 models run Windows 10 Anniversary Update, the latest Windows 10 update. Many functions have been upgraded for improved ease of use, such as including the Windows Ink handwriting input function, the Windows Hello biometric authentication feature, the Cortana personal assistant, the Microsoft Edge browser for Windows 10 with enhanced functions, as well as Windows Information Protection and Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection, which contribute to safe operations with enterprise data.
3. Continued support for models downgraded to Windows 7 or Windows 8.1
To respond to the need to have Windows 7 support, for which there is significant demand in the enterprise market, ongoing support will be provided for models downgraded to Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, in addition to Windows 10. In addition, the standard HDD capacity for all laptop series (except T936/P and U745/M) desktop PC series, and workstation series models has been increased from 320GB to 500GB.
4. New options of PASERI for PC distributed confidential data software, dedicated USB memory
As a customized option for all laptop and tablet models, TCSI, Inc.’s PASERI for PC, which brings together distributed confidential data software and dedicated USB memory as a set for effective security enhancement. When files including confidential data are carried outside of the company, the data on a PASERI(virtual) drive that is temporarily generated when the USB memory drive is connected to the PC is converted into data that has no meaning and then gets automatically distributed with one section being saved on the built-in hard disk or SSD, and one section saved on to the USB memory.
Therefore even if the PC unit alone is stolen, there is no need to worry about data being leaked or files being recovered. Because the saved (after being distributed) files can only be recovered on a PASERI (virtual) drive that is temporarily generated when the USB memory drive is connected to the PC, files containing confidential data can be safely carried outside the company.
