Corel, Creative to bring multimedia to Linux

Corel and multimedia specialist Creative Technology, have signed an agreement that will advance the development of Linux applications for high-quality audio and video.

Creative will work with Corel to add support for its line of Sound Blaster Live digital audio products and its line of personal digital entertainment (PDE) Internet products that include Internet devices, applications and services, the companies said.

As part of this collaborative effort, Corel will distribute its upcoming Linux-based suite of applications with support for Creative's industry-standard audio products and PDE devices bundled in.

Based on the agreement, Creative and Corel will collaboratively develop Linux drivers for Creative's branded products. Creative's PDE Internet products include the Nomad line of portable audio devices and the WebCam Go line of portable PC cameras. Sound Blaster Live drivers for Linux are already available and will, under the agreement, be customised for Corel's distribution, the companies said.

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.
