New gamepad features motion sensing

Logitech has announced the availability of a new gamepad that features motion sensing technology.

The WingMan Gamepad Extreme ($99 RRP) uses G-Force Tilt technology that translates tilting movements of the gamepad into on-screen action.

The gamepad's motion sensor uses "micro-machined accelerometer technology", says Logitech, to accurately measure tilting motions -- forward and back, side to side and all angles in between.

The motion sensor can be enabled or disabled with the press of a button, and allows the gamepad to be used as a hat switch to change points of view, camera angles, or provide other directional information, claims Logitech.

The WingMan Gamepad Extreme has a combination digital game port and USB interface.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

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.
