  • Fujitsu Stylistic 3500R Backlight Advice Needed

    Hi,

    I just got a good deal on a Fujitsu Stylistic 3500R tablet that I want to set up as a bike PC. I bought this model for its reflective (outdoor) screen but obviously had not thought of the implications of having a screen with no backlight at all.

    So, my main question is, can I add a backlight or sidelight to this tablet so that the screen will be visible in all lighting conditions? Also, the touchscreen seems a bit iffy in XP and requires a very firm push. I would need a glove friendly touchscreen so any advice would be welcomed.

    Recommendation: Ditch it and start over!

    Rationale: I used 3500s in my cars for three or four years. The R version was great for my convertible during the day and at dusk I'd swap the harddrive to an S model. No room nor power for a backlight in the R model.

    Overall, not enough horsepower on those to do much more than Mp3 and GPS.

    Good luck with that.
