Google goes Everywhere

The distribution agreement is the latest extension to an existing partnership between Google and Yahoo that began in June of 2000, said Google spokesman David Krane. Yahoo Everywhere is Yahoo's wireless communications initiative.

"Google's WAP (wireless application protocol) technology allows mobile-phone users to connect to the Web and browse search engines from anywhere they can use their phones," Krane said.

Google's WAP search technology automatically converts HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) Web pages into a format that can be viewed on WAP-ready phones. There are more than 2 million Web pages in Google's WAP search engine index and the Google search engine is available in 26 languages. However, the WAP service will be available only on web-enabled phones in the US for now, Google said.

The addition of Google's search technology will complement the existing Yahoo directory, a step toward developing more innovative mobile data services for consumers, Yahoo said.

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.
