Fujitsu phone and PC concepts unveiled in Milan

April 5, 2006 The Good Design Award 50 Years exhibition is currently on display at La Triennale di Milano (Milan, Italy) to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Japan's foremost design awards, the Good Design Awards (also called the G-Mark system). One of the highlights of the exhibition which features 20 of Japan’s best known industrial design brand names, is a display of concept phones and computers from Fujitsu. It’s strange that we should be given such an insight into the direction of a Japanese computer company through a design exhibition in Milan, but the thrust of the message is that Fujitsu is clearly focussing on clever design to offer smaller yet fully functional devices. Two “slider” mobile phones are on display, one which incorporates a complete keyboard and large web interface screen and the other, known as a Multi Slider, offers differing functionality depending on the direction of the slide. There’s also an ultramobile PC with a clever fold-up keyboard and a beautiful flexible PC which can be set up as a tablet computer, a laptop, or a desktop computer.Read More
