Pshaw. Smartphones and iPads and netbooks. They're all wimpy, underpowered and anemic compared to the portable might that is the Fujitsu LifeBook UH900 (via Engadget). This little gadget has been an apple in my eye for a while, and now it is on sale at Fujitsu's website for $850. Considering it retails for $999, that isn't a bad price.
So what do you get for your nearly-a-grand? A 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Z530 CPU, 2GB of RAM, and a 62 GB SSD. The UH900 has b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS. It sports Windows 7 out of the box and has a 5.6" multitouch enabled screen. Despite this thing's tiny form, it packs in more technology than any other portable device I have heard of. This little pocket-book can go toe to toe with just about any netbook and win, and there aren't any smartphones (or many tablets) that can compete with it for power.
The Fujitsu Lifebook UH900 sports every conceivable feature except for 3G. For many, that might be enough to kill it. I still maintain that it's an amazing work of techno-sorcery. Amazing enough to shell out close to a grand for? The jury is still out on that.
