China finally gives nod to 3G licenses

The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will award three licenses to mobile operators in early 2009.

China's State Council has finally given its nod to the issuance of the long-awaited 3G licenses.

According to a recent news report by Xinhua News Agency, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will award three licenses to mobile operators in early 2009 without specifying an exact date. While China Mobile will provide 3G service via home-grown TD-SCDMA network, China Unicom and China Telecom will rely on WCDMA and CDMA 2000 respectively, the report said.

China will invest RMB 280 billion (US$ 41 billion) in 3G networks over the next two years, Li Yizhong, head of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology was quoted as saying.

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.
