Product Features

1. Full HD large-screen display and quad-core CPU for a stunning, stress-free viewing experience

Featuring a Full HD (1,920 x 1,200 pixel) display that surpasses the standard width of high-definition video, the FAR70B delivers a more immersive viewing experience for high-resolution Full HD video content, crystal clear video game graphics, maps, electronic books, and other content.

With a high-performance 1.7 GHz(1) CPU and a 12-core graphics processing unit, high-definition games run smoothly for a stress-free experience.

2. Fast charging, high-capacity battery plus water- and dust-resistance, for reliable use on the go

At approximately 10,080-mAh, the tablet's battery has substantially higher capacity than its predecessor(2), which was equipped with a 6,560-mAh battery. As a result, it can make it through a long day of heavy use while on the go or on vacation without users having to worry about battery life. In addition, the ARROWS Tab Wi-Fi FAR70B offers ultra-high-speed charging with fast charging functionality(3), which can charge the battery to 1,770mAh in roughly 30 minutes, roughly 2.5 times higher capacity than the 700-mAh battery of the previous model.

The FAR70B also boasts IPX5/8 water-resistance and IP5X dust-resistance technology(4), equipping it to be carried around in all sorts of different environments, whether at home or outdoors.

3. Style Switcher: Delivers a user-friendly experience for all ages

The FAR70B includes a Style Switcher feature that allows users to easily change between different home screens that are custom configured for individual users, from "Kid's Style" for children to "Easy Style" for the elderly, making it suitable for use as a shared tablet for the whole family. Users are able to select from six different home screens, each with different design elements, including wallpapers, icons, clock designs, and shortcut icons.

The tablet provides for a wide range of input options, from one-handed typing to handwriting input. The input mode for Kid's Style displays the Japanese language's "50-sounds table" starting from the right, the way children are taught at school, while the input mode for Easy Style displays the 50-sounds table in the more familiar ATM-style, which starts on the left. The input mode switches automatically, making the FAR70B a tablet that is easy to use for a wide range of users.

4. Human Centric Engine: Ensuring optimal usability

Fujitsu's "Human Centric Engine," which uses cutting-edge sensing technology to provide an ideal user experience, is even more sophisticated than before. To compensate for the decline in color sensitivity that occurs as people age, the new "Matching View" feature customizes the screen's color balance to the user's age, while "Clear Touch" makes touch-based operations more obvious.

5. Next-generation Dolby Digital Plus: Enabling advanced dimensional surround sound

With the addition of the latest Dolby Digital Plus, users are able to enjoy high-quality videos in dimensional surround sound using only the tablet's front speakers.

6. Switch-enabled smart fingerprint sensor: Security as a basic function

With the built-in smart fingerprint sensor, the tablet's security lock can be released by simply placing the finger of a pre-registered user on the sensor. The new sensor contains a switch that can turn the tablet's screen on and off, making the process of turning on the screen and releasing its security lock easier than ever. Moreover, the new sensor delivers even greater convenience when employed in combination with the tablet's built-in security features, such as privacy mode and a password manager.

7. Slim and lightweight design for easy carrying

Weighing in at just 589g with a thickness of only 9.9mm, Fujitsu's new tablet boasts an incredibly slim easy-to-carry design. The rear of the tablet also features a superior construction thanks to advanced hair-thin processing technology, which enables a design that is slip-resistant when held in the hand.

8. Preloaded with a variety of useful applications that can be enjoyed from day one

The FAR70B comes preloaded with a variety of useful applications that users can enjoy from day one. These include Books V, Fujitsu's e-book service that boasts over 400,000 titles, Fujitsu Mobile Integrated Dictionary +, which consists of 30 pre-installed electronic dictionaries, and Wacky Motors for F, a racing game that allows players to steer intuitively by tilting the tablet in different directions.
