Main Features of the New Products
1. Compact tablet with "Slide Passport," world's first slide-style palm vein authentication function
As part of its ARROWS Tab series of windows tablets, Fujitsu has launched the new ARROWS Tab Q507/P-SP, a 10.1" compact and light tablet featuring Slide Passport, a slide-style palm vein authentication functionality offering both strong security and convenience. With the simple action of sliding your hand along the guides displayed on the tablet's touchscreen, the small slide-style palm vein sensor installed in the tablet's frame will read and authenticate the pattern of veins in your hand. The technology in this sensor was developed by Fujitsu Limited and Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd., and by adopting an 8mm optical unit that Dai Nippon Printing Co., Ltd. has been able to mass produce, it became possible to mount it in the narrow frame of a tablet. In addition, the tablet features both water resistance (IPX4) and dust resistance (IP5X)(3), enabling use in a variety of business situations.
