Cassiopeia E-115

Unlike its predecessors, the E-115 runs on the latest version of Microsoft's Windows CE operating system for handhelds; it has the friendliest CE user interface yet, as well as a Reader application to handle electronic books. You get a generous 32MB of RAM and Casio's software for playing (fairly short) videos that you've converted to a proprietary file format via an included desktop program. To entice Palm users to jump ship, Casio includes Harmony Enterprise 99 (for transferring data from a Palm to a Windows CE device) in the software bundle. An optional $599 camera plugs into the Compact Flash port.

I didn't really like the boxy metallic look of a shipping E-115, and a USB sync cradle would have been preferable to Casio's slower serial hookup. If you're dying to play videos or listen to stereo music on your palmtop, though, the E-115 is the ticket for Pocket PC enthusiasts.

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.
