Codenamed "Honami" and likely to use the model number C6906, the upcoming Sony device has been detailed on US Web site Xperia Blog.

The blog has published a number of screenshots of the Honami smartphone and has also revealed details of the device taken from the build.prop.

The key feature appears to be a 20-megapixel camera that can also record 4K video. The latter is likely to record at a resolution of 4000 x 2000 with an aspect ratio of 2:1.

The Sony Honami device is likely to be marketed heavily on its imaging capabilities. The camera is expected to have a number of advanced settings including a selectable ISO range, image stabilisation and an Exmor R sensor that uses the same process as as Sony's rumoured RX100 MkII digital camera.

The smartphone is also expected to have manual controls for shutter speed and aperture control, along with a new timeshift burst mode. It will be powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 800 processor and is likely to have a 5in screen.

A potential launch of the Sony Honami would come just days after the company confirmed it will release its new Xperia Z Ultra smartphone in Australia later this year.

The Xperia Z Ultra is described as a "premium large-screen Android smartphone" which Sony claims is the world's slimmest and largest with a full HD screen.

It has a 6.4in display, is fully waterproof, and comes with a stylus for on-screen sketching and writing.

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.
