Amazon to launch movie streaming service?

Prime members could be given service for no extra cost

Amazon is thought to be preparing to offer its Prime customers the chance to stream movies and TV shows over the Internet.

Following the etailer's acquisition of online and by-post movie rental service Love Film last month, Amazon posted a message on a web page that hinted at the move.

According to Engadget, which captured the page, the message read: "Your Amazon Prime membership now includes unlimited, commercial-free, instant streaming of 5,000 movies and TV shows at no additional cost".

However, the page was quickly removed. Amazon has yet to comment on the rumours but a source told the Financial Times the company had been working on the streaming service.

Amazon Prime costs 49 per year and offers web users free delivery on a hst of items sold by the website.

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.

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.
