Cassiopeia gets colour

Colour is the keyword in describing Casio's latest version of its palm-size PC, the Cassiopeia, which now sports "vivid colour and powerhouse multimedia capabilities", says the company.

The Cassiopeia E-100, which runs on Microsoft's Windows CE 2.11 operating system, features a 16-bit active matrix TFT LCD, 131MHz processor, and 16MB of RAM and ROM each. A CompactFlash port provides an expandability option for memory, and other features such as a headphone jack, and microphone/speaker, are also incorporated into the handheld.

Standard software is shipped with the E-100, including Pocket Outlook, Voice Recorder and Note Taker. An additional Multimedia Pack ($149 RRP) is available, offering users the ability to play MP3 or Microsoft Audio files, and Casio movie files (which are limited to the size of memory on the handheld or CompactFlash cards). The pack also includes Palm Golf for up to four players, and the CSI Image Viewer, which supports the most widely used graphic image formats, says Casio.

The Cassiopeia E-100 is priced at $1199 RRP.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
