It appears that Apple isn't the only one dealing with product leaks. On May 30, Engadget stumbled across a roadmap with the specs for the entire fall collection of mobile chips from Intel.

The roadmap (click on the image to enlarge it) mentions the i5 and i7 processors officially released last week. The roadmap also reveals that the fourth quarter will bring us the following dual cores: the 2.66GHz Core i5-580M (which turbos to 3.33 GHz), the Core i7-740QM/840QM, the 2.8GHz Core i7-640M and the 2.66GHz Core i5-560M. The i7-640M turbos to 3.46 GHz and the i5-560M to 3.2GHz.

On top of the dual core chips, Intel will also bring higher efficiency chips, meaning that your mobile device will save energy and last longer. These are the 1.46GHz Core i7-680UM (turbos up to 2.53GHz) and a 1.33GHz Core i5-560UM (turbos to 2.13GHz). There will also be a 25W Core i7-660LM that clocks in at 2.26GHz.

Engadget also reports that these new dual-cores will have on-die Intel HD Graphics. And in 2011, Intel will bring us WiMAX, WiDi, Intel Bluetooth and a new power-saving sleep mode called Zero Power ODD.

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.
