Nokia, Sonera complete GPRS roaming tests

GPRS roaming will allow subscribers of one operator to use mobile Internet services while in an area covered by another operator's services. The tests were strictly technical with engineers from Sonera and Nokia, testing the basic IP connection, DNSes (domain name servers) and the like, according to Janne Pesu, a spokesman for Sonera.

"We just wanted to make sure everything worked," he said. The testing was also between Sonera's own network and Nokia's test network, as opposed to crossing two commercial networks.

"We're already in commercial talks with operators on several continents; we'll be announcing those agreements within the next couple of weeks," Pesu added.

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.

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.
