Kylie Minnich, vice-president of distribution for Sony Pictures Television said, "The FetchTV model is a great consumer proposition and we're pleased to offer many of our blockbuster feature films on the service." New movies from Sony will be available on FetchTV in early March, and will include Salt, Grown Ups, The Karate Kid and Cemetery Junction.

Scott Lorsen, CEO of FetchTV, said of Madman Entertainment, "Madman provides a rich array of independent and special interest movies, which rounds out our movie offering. We're now able to complement the big Hollywood blockbusters with the best movies from world cinema and independent film makers".

Oh the joys of DRM!

For that price, i'd expect to keep the move and play it on any device I had at home (ipad, PC, phone etc..)

Nor do I understand why HD videos cost MORE.

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.
