Sharp to launch MPEG-4 video camera

In August, Sharp will launch the world's first video camera that uses the MPEG-4 digital video compression standard, the company has announced.

The Internet ViewCam (VN-EZ1), will be priced at $1299 and will feature a 4.5cm LCD monitor and a 270 degree rotating lens. The camera weighs in at 148g and is pocket-sized, for portability, says Sharp.

SmartMedia flash memory cards are used for storing video taken on the Internet ViewCam, which comes with a 4MB card. According to Sharp, up to two hours and 17 minutes of "moving picture data" can be stored on a 32MB SmartMedia card when using the Long Play mode at a resolution of 160 x 120.

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.
