Daniel Craig will reprise his role for James Bond 007: Blood Stone

With MGM's financial future uncertain, the next James Bond film probably won't see the light of day for some time, but the rubber-burning minds at Bizarre Creations have got all you 00-agents-in-waiting covered with the announcement of James Bond 007: Blood Stone.

Bizarre Creations, the high-octane team behind racers Project Gotham Racing and the recently released Blur, are at the helm of James Bond 007: Blood Stone, and -- from the looks of the game's brand new reveal trailer -- are infusing it with as many explosive boat and car chases as an HD-gen console can process.

Daniel Craig will be reprising his role as the titular spy, with Judi Dench returning as series staple M, and soul songstress Joss Stone debuting as the game's fittingly named Bond girl. Bond screenwriter Bruce Feirstein (Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough) will be penning an original story for the game.

"James Bond 007: Blood Stone captures the cinematic intensity of a Bond film by immersing players in an intriguing conspiracy that will require them to think and act like James Bond," said David Pokress, Activision's Head of Marketing for Licensed Properties in the announcement. "In addition, the game will feature a diverse array of multi-player modes and debut strategic objective-based gameplay that will allow Xbox 360, PS3 and PC players to battle as teams of spies and mercenaries through authentic Bond locales."

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.
