Sony storms CES

Here's a look at some of Sony's new products, including new 3D TVs and camcorders and laptops billed as more affordable alternatives to Apple's MacBook Air.

Sony Bloggie 3D

The 3D Sony Bloggie is one of three new Bloggie camcorders, but it's the only one that shoots in 3D. It has a parallax-barrier screen that allows you to see a 3D effect when playing back video and stills on its 2.4-inch LCD screen.

The camcorder's two lenses are arranged vertically when you hold the Bloggie 3D upright, and 3D shooting requires tilting the camcorder to landscape orientation while recording. The Bloggie 3D also boasts two CMOS sensors behind its lenses; it shoots 1920-by-1080 HD video through each channel, but because its video playback uses the side-by-side 3D display method, 3D clips lose a bit of resolution.

The new Bloggie offers 8GB of on-board storage, which Sony says translates to four hours of HD video recording in 2D mode. Other specs include an autofocus mode, a macro mode, a 4x digital zoom, 5-megapixel still capture, and a flip-out USB connector for offloading media and recharging the battery.

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.
