Fujitsu puts the Stylistic M532 Android tablet on sale this weekend
The Stylistic M532 made a name for itself when it arrived in the US market as a quad-core Tegra 3 powered tablet running Android 4.0 ICS with a 10.1-inch WXGA 1280x800 IPS display. On board was 32GB of memory, an 8MP camera and a 2MP front facing camera. Like we observed last summer, the specifications in themselves were not awe inspiring and its initial retail price of $549, later adjusted to $449, was not an attractive price of admission.
The M532 does have a couple of value-added features though. Among them, the tablet is built tough to MIL-STD-810G standards which means it will be more than up to the task for putting up with your active lifestyle. In addition to that, a one-year subscription to Absolute Computrace is included, which will help you track down your Stylistic M532 should it be stolen. All that is packed in a 10-inch tablet and weighs in at just 1.23 pounds (just over half a kilogram) which is lighter than just about everything else in the 10-inch tablet space.
taking an additional $100 off the Stylistic M532, pushing the price down to only $349. That is not a bad deal at all for a rugged 10-inch tablet with theft tracing and a host of business apps included. Check out our review of the Stylistic M532 if you are thinking about it. The M532 is slim, light, rugged and may be a handy addition to your collection.

I've had my M532 for 3 months and it is superb, the only negative is the rarity and exorbitant cost of its accessories. In order to output an HDMI signal you have to buy an adapter or cradle, each of which costs approx £70. I bought both, so £140spent but still cannot output HDMI. Fujitsu want it back for repair but not replacement, which pees me off as it is so new.
So if you see HDMI as critical don't get this tablet, buy a Asus infinity. Fujitsu screwed up when they decided not to include a micro HDMI socket on the tablet itself. The cradle doesn't support the tablet well enough to type, and the adapter is on the end of a very short cable, which results in a heavy load on the custom connector, which seems likely to break under the weight of the adapter and the HDMI cable plugged into it.
The Fujitsu accessory speakers are excellent, with good bass.
I couldn't find a new case on sale so had to pay £60 for a second hand one on eBay.
Apart from all this the tablet itself is very good.

You are way too far from china to get the accesseries for cheap prices. From this side, poor you. Let's move to asia such as vietnam, a cable might cost 5bucks at maximum lol
