As with most Fujitsus we’ve seen there is an attention to detail which includes the suede covers on the bottom of lidebook device, though the U doesn’t have the heat output of its brethren.

But apart from its white and black colour scheme, the most notable thing about the Fujitsu is its convertible nature. A little pressure can be too much and the cursor shoots across the screen — but thankfully the unit has another input method which is much preferred The Good Fun to use.


It’s also quite comfortable to hold in your hands for long periods. Using the fujistu while the UMPC is in tablet mode is easy and intuitive.

It’s not that it’s uncomfortable to type on — there’s plenty of tactile feedback — but the buttons are irregular, and in some cases WAY too small. On the left hand side of the U you’ll find a wireless radio switch, an SD card reader, and for the device’s small concession to multimedia there is a volume dial alongside a microphone and headphone port.
