Motorola to demo small office WiMax gear

Motorola to demonstrate WiMax device capable of VoIP

Motorola said it will demonstrate a desktop WiMax device focused on consumers and small office users at WiMax World in Chicago this week . The device will be sold to various carriers the Northern autumn for eventual resale.

Called the CPEi 300 Series, the hardware features a data port and two analog terminal adapters so users can plug in an analog phone for voice over IP service, Motorola said in a statement. Pricing was not announced, but a Motorola official called it an entry-level, reduced cost device for fixed wireless broadband connections to voice, data and video.

The CPEi 300 Series complies with the IEEE 802.16e-2005 standard for mobile WiMax, but Motorola also said it realizes that carriers will want to deliver a fast connection for fixed applications. The product will be delivered to the WiMax Forum for certification, Motorola said.

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.
