Fujitsu has unveiled 14 new models of tablets, notebooks and mobile workstations geared towards a the newly mobile, remote workforce working from home due to the coronavirus lockdown.
The launches include nine models of Notebook LIFEBOOK, four models of the ARROWS Tab (Windows tablet) and one model of Fujitsu Workstation CELSIUS, all of which will go on sale in Japan from today.
