Sandisk to unwrap 1G Compact Flash card

Sandisk Corp. will take the wraps off a 1G-byte Compact Flash card, the highest capacity yet, at the Comdex Fall show, which is due to start next Monday in Las Vegas.

The card offers double the capacity of the company's current top-of-the-range card, a 512M-byte model that went on sale in the second quarter. The new card is expected to be available to consumers in early 2002, the company said Monday. Sandisk estimates the card will sell for about US$800 per card, which is just under double the current price of the 512M-byte card.

Higher capacity memory cards are much in demand among users of portable digital multimedia devices, such as digital still cameras, music and movie players because of the large size of files often used with the devices. The new card should enable users to store more than 1,000 digital images, more than 20 hours of digital music or several hours of video, Sandisk said.

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.
