New samsung mobile doubles as digital camera

The SCH-V200, which is already on sale in Korea, features a CCD (Charge Coupled Device) image pickup on the back of the telephone handset and is capable of taking pictures at 640x480 pixels resolution. In regular mode up to 20 images can be snapped by the user while a second mode allows 26 images of lower quality to be taken. Images can be transferred to a personal computer by cable.

Samsung imagines the telephone will be a hit with young people and also useful in situations where pictures need to be taken unexpectedly, such as after a road accident.

The telephone is the latest in a line of dual device mobile handsets developed by Samsung. Previous telephones have included an MP3 player, television and internet access and the company has also developed a handset that can be worn on the wrist.

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.
