Intel Play Sound Morpher

Designed for children aged six and above, the Sound Morpher can be carried with you wherever you go and will capture sounds with the press of a button. It can also be used as a sinister spy tool, since the range and clarity of the microphone is quite good.

The unit will record for up to four minutes before running out of storage capacity, but you can download audio to the PC using your sound card's microphone jack and the supplied software. The software is probably the most fun part of the package: you can apply filters to sounds you record, to make friends or foes sound like monsters or other weird creatures. The software facilitates sound editing and can read aloud in a computerised voice any text that you type. Parents will be glad to know that extreme curse words are not tolerated by the program and are immediately deleted.

The sound editing functions of the program include adding effects and various filters to sounds recorded by the Morpher. Cutting and pasting is also facilitated, while markers at the start and end of each beat are placed to make sound remixing less of a chore. The program can also import other uncompressed sound files that may be on your system.

The Sound Morpher is a solid device that seems rugged enough to withstand child's play and is a good introduction to the wonderful world of sound editing. It takes three AAA batteries, not included, and comes with a connector cable, a pair of headphones and a belt-clip.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
