Microsoft Corp. and Plumtree Software Inc. on Tuesday will detail a deal under which Plumtree bundles Microsoft's .NET enterprise server software applications with its corporate portal. "The idea of a Windows user having to go through a Sun Microsystem Inc. or Oracle Corp. application to get at a Windows application is a scary thought for us," said Dave Young, a business development manager at Microsoft's enterprise partner group. "Defending the desktop is a big part of this initiative," he added.

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.
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.
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.
