User Manual for Fujitsu UH900 leads to confusion on specs

Convertible or not? That is the question.

Fujitsu has been making tiny convertible UMPCs and notebooks for a long time. The things can be used like a regular notebook and the screen can rotate for use as a tablet as well. Fujitsu pulled the wraps off a small notebook called the UH900 at CES that lacked the convertible style we are used to seeing in Fujitsu UMPCs.




The UH900 spied at CES was a fixed screen notebook, but a section of the machines user manual has led to speculation and confusion. The section is titled "using the system as a tablet" and outlines how to use the notebook in tablet layout without damaging the keyboard.


The confusion comes in that the UH900 is not a convertible notebook. Speculation goes two ways. First, it could be a simple misprint since the user manual is probably the same one used for some convertible models. Second option is that the user manual was printed to be used for the UH900 we already know about and an unannounced convertible machine. My money is on misprint.
