Bottom Line

Is it really necessary?

Would you buy this?

If you already have a camera with an LCD 2.0" or larger, you are not in the target market for Kodak's EasyShare Picture Viewer.

As its name suggests, the product acts like a mini photo album and is designed to let users show off their pics to friends or family. Its selling point is its screen--a 2.5" high-resolution LCD.

Weighing only 70g and measuring 87mm wide by 58mm high by 12mm deep, the product is easy to carry around in a pocket or handbag. When you have an audience, pull it out and share your images instantly with your friends.

Kodak claims the EasyShare can display full-resolution images in less than three seconds, but we found it took longer on images of about 2.5MB. Smaller images worked fine.

The EasyShare Picture Viewer only has slots for SD and MMC cards. Its internal storage is 32MB and a video-out port allows you view your images on your TV.

The EasyShare is pretty light on features. It provides a slide show, with intervals that can be adjusted from three seconds onwards; allows you to delete images and gives you 2X magnification. Images can also be viewed nine-per-screen. You can also get basic picture info such as file type, date and image size.

The Menu button is a bit hard to press, which is a problem if you have big fingers.

Because it is compatible with the new IMAGELINK print system, users can select images to be printed on Kodak's EasyShare Printer Dock Series 3.

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.
