The blogger mum: Creative Vado Pocket Video Cam (RRP: $149.95)

Some mums have an opinion about everything. If it’s on the news, they’ll definitely have some choice words to say on the subject — from the weekend rain to the world economic climate. Instead of weathering the storm yourself, why not introduce her to the blogosphere? That way, the whole world can have an earful too. The Creative Vado Pocket Video Cam. is a beginner-friendly Net cam with built-in YouTube support.

The Vado's on-board media-management software will automatically launch when your mum plugs in the device, allowing her to upload clips in a few easy mouse clicks. The unit comes with 2GB of inbuilt memory, which will store around an hour of video at the highest quality setting.

Check out our in-depth review of the Creative Vado Pocket Video Cam.

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.
