Nokia added a new appliance to its network security range that has more processing muscle -- the first product to come out of its collaboration with Intel.

The IP2450 is intended for large enterprises and service providers doing high-end network monitoring. It features two quad-core Intel processors.

Running Check Point Software Technologies' SecureXL VPN (virtual private network) and firewall software, the appliance can handle as much as 9G bps (bits per second) of traffic using Nokia's IPSO 6.O OS. Adding two Nokia Accelerated Data Path (ADP) cards boosts throughput to 20G bps.

The IP2450 can also run Check Point's CoreXL software, as well as Check Point's VPN-1 UTM (Unified Threat Management) suite, which includes firewall, VPN (virtual private network), antivirus, URL (uniform resource locator) filtering and intrusion prevention capabilities or the Check Point VPN-1 Power applications.

The IP2450 is available now through Nokia's channel partners. Pricing can vary depending on the channel partner's relationship with Nokia, but a call to one vendor in London quoted £31,000 (AU$75,637) for the appliance, plus £7,500 for one year of 24-hour support.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
