With a tip of the cap to the Flip Mino HD and Creative Vado HD, Kodak's popular Z-series pocket camcorder is also going high-definition.

Announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the pocketable Kodak Zx1 digital video camera records 720p high-def video at two frame rates (30 fps and 60 fps) and includes ArcSoft Media Impressions software on the camera for editing clips and easy YouTube uploads. The pocket camcorder has a slot compatible with both SD and SDHC cards, allowing owners to add up to 32GB of storage capacity. Kodak says the Zx1 can hold 20 minutes of 30 fps footage per gigabyte of storage.

The Zx1 will cost US$150 and will be available in the spring in a range of colors (black, blue, red, pink, and yellow).

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.
