8. What did a Cisco VP reveal at Interop Las Vegas that she shouldn't have?
Cisco VP of Network Systems and Security Marketing Marie Hattar let slip that a campus switching overhaul is in the works, under the code-name "Big Bang". It came about as Jim Duffy asked if Cisco has a "big bang" in store for the campus portfolio similar to product overhauls earlier in 2008 in the data center and edge router lines. "Big Bang," replied a jolted Hattar, "is a code name we have for an upcoming launch." Hattar thought Duffy had caught wind of the code name and project ahead of time. He did not. However, Hattar was a little more tight-lipped at December's Cisco C-Scape analyst conference when asked about whether Cisco will be coming out with a blade server, as has been reported.

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

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
