10 cool new mobile gadgets

Some of these 10 intriguing mobile gizmos, including a connected GPS unit, external iPhone speakers, a Bluetooth headset, and a gadget charger, are fairly mainstream. The others, well, not so much.

YUBZ Talk Mobile


Tired of yakking into a piece of electronics barely larger than a Zippo cigarette lighter? YUBZ ("Why You Busy?") lets you talk into a real, honest-to-goodness receiver, just like the kind you had when there was only one phone company (and no cell phones). Adapters let you connect the YUBZ Talk Mobile to most brands of cell phone, including the iPhone; buttons on the handset let you pick up calls and control volume. Add a $20 VoIP adapter, and you can use the YUBZ with your laptop and with softphones like Skype. But it's not all about retro hipness: The YUBZ also puts out 95 percent less radiation than many mobile phones do, allowing you to go without the glow. Available in five Starburst-like colors.

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.
