Pros
top nav, esp with Runkeeper
Cons
No 3.5mm Jack
• • •

I wanted to plug in a transmitter for a UDIRC Helicopter but the transmitter has a 3.5mm jack. I'm hoping a 5 pin mini usb to 3.5mm female cable/adapter will fix the problem. Anyone tried it? The adapters can be found on ebay for $1.

Pros
GPS, Price, durability
Cons
Slow Processor

I've had this phone for 14 months and it has been dropped, kicked and beaten within an inch of it's life and it still works a treat barring some responsiveness issues on Facebook at times. The processor is only 600Mhz so doesn't match up to the more expensive smartphones but for the price at Dick Smith you can't go wrong...just upgrade the android s/ware to 2.2 first up.

Well, I own this phone without doing research on it. It just simply popped out at me. In my opinion I really like this phone. I've had it for about a year, and my horse just recently stepped on it (weighs about 1,200lbs) and it's doing just fine.

Well to bad that it is not voice command when using the bluetooth. Tickets are expensive. All phone should be voice command now. I should bought the nexus S more powerful and it voice command.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
