Microsoft Corp. said it would release a public beta of Exchange Server 2010 on Wednesday, and said the final version of its flagship communications software would be released by year's end.Improvements to Exchange Server 2007's successor include a built-in e-mail archive and other features for e-mail administrators, as well as innovations aimed at end users that either match Google Inc.'s Gmail or, in some cases, top it. One thing that will not change: Exchange 2010 will continue to use the Jet database engine to store messages, instead of SQL Server as Microsoft publicly outlined earlier this decade. Jet has been criticized for not scaling well for companies with many e-mail users or large in-boxes. Julia White, director of Exchange product management, said that Microsoft had "done a ton of innovation" on Jet for Exchange 2010. "We're optimizing what we've done with Jet to move it to the next level." However, White was unsure if Jet would be used for later versions of Exchange.

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.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
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.
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.
