    Fujitsu's not been a very visible player on the smartphone scene, at least not outside of Asia, but the company may be interested in doing something about that by targeting a very niche market. President Masami Yamamoto recently discussed some of Fujitsu's plans for raising its global profile, including bringing a smartphone targeted at senior citizens to the West. The Raku-Raku phone (meaning easy-to-use) runs a modified build of Ice Cream Sandwich with big, easy-to-see buttons and on-screen indicators. So far exclusive to Japan, Fujitsu now intends to bring the phone to markets in the US ...

    Earlier this month we were talking about the lack of options for rugged Android tablets. Just like with rugged phones, it seemed like nearly everything was a mid-range device, at best, with the selection even slimmer due to the tablet form factor. Today, though, we've learned about a new Android from Fujitsu, its Stylistic M532, and on paper at least, it just might be the heavyweight tablet powerhouse we were hoping for. The M532 runs a 1.4GHz quad-core Tegra 3, has a gigabyte of RAM, and has 32GB of on-board flash storage with microSD expansion supported. The 10.1-inch display is only in ...

    3D-enabled smartphones came, they saw, and then soundly failed to conquer. We might not have seen the last of them yet, but they're clearly not about to overtake phones with 2D screens anytime soon. While 3D might have been a swing-and-a-miss on smartphones, 3D-capable televisions continue to grab up sales. That has the potential for creating a bit of a content imbalance, where plenty of people have the ability to view 3D content at home, but without 3D cameras on smartphones, have reduced opportunities to create new 3D content themselves. Fujitsu may have just the solution, having come up ...

    At the beginning of August 2011, Toshiba decided to drop out of the Fujitsu-Toshiba joint venture. Fujitsu made its plans public to buy Toshiba's stake and become a wholly owned subsidiary. As of April 1, Fujitsu managed to finalize the acquisition of Toshiba's 19.9% ownership stake from Fujitsu Toshiba Mobile Communications Limited. Adding it to Fujitsu's 80.1% stake, the company now became a wholly owned subsidiary with its name being changed to Fujitsu Mobile Communications Limited. Fujitsu-Toshiba was present on the list of Windows Phone official hardware manufacturer partners and, as ...

    Remember back at the CES, when we got the chance to see one of the first quad-core Android smartphones ever, thanks to a prototype Fujitsu had put out on display? It may have been safely tucked-away behind a sheet of acrylic, but it was there in the flesh, all the same. We learned a few specs on the phone at the time, with the expectation that we'd be seeing a more refined version of the handset at the MWC. With that expo nearly upon us, a new render of the phone has become available, along with some additional and updated specs. While we heard that CES prototype was running a Tegra 3 at ...

    According to a recent Financial Times report, Fujitsu is planning on entering the European market this year with a number of Android-powered smartphones and tablets to go with its Windows Phones. The hardware maker is allegedly already in talks with network operators but it is yet unknown whether its line-up will be unveiled at the upcoming MWC or not. Following the same market policy as Panasonic -- which is planning on entering the European market this March -- Fujitsu will bring its devices to Europe while maintaining some of the features specific to the Japanese market. According to ...

    Fujitsu showed off a roadmap in a press conference where the company hinted there will be interesting devices to hit the market. We're looking at three tablets: one for June, one for September and one for Q4, whenever Microsoft unveils Windows 8. The tablet to arrive in June is labeled as a "mainstream Android Media tablet" and it could very well be the M532 rumored for a May launch but delayed (and which reportedly packs a 10.1-inch screen with 1280 x 800 resolution, 16GB of internal memory, a SIM-card slot, eight-megapixel camera, and three-megapixel webcam). September might see a ...

    Last month, Fujitsu gave us plenty of reasons to be hopeful about the company's upcoming device lineup. The quad-core prototype Android smartphone it was demonstrating at CES was the first such device we'd actually seen put together as a working product. A little later on, the company got us hopeful about the prospects for seeing more of its hardware come to the West, revealing that now "North America is our priority market". With all this cause to be optimistic, we're a little let-down to see Fujitsu's latest Android, the Stylistic M350/CA2 tablet. With specs like a seven-inch 1024 x 600 ...
