2011's Hottest Tech: CES and Beyond

Nintendo 3DS



The Nintendo 3DS handheld won't be as fast as a PlayStation 3 or an Xbox 360, and it won't let you play older DS and DSi games in 3D. But it will do lots of cool stuff. The 3DS looks stunning, with a spectacular 800-by-240, 3D-capable widescreen and a second, 320-by-240 touchscreen, all housed in an 8.1-ounce package. It will let you take 3D pictures with dual cameras, play "augmented reality" games, and see new games and native software in 3D without special glasses. The handheld's widescreen will allow you to manually adjust the depth of its 3D effect—and even knock the action down to regular 2D if you don't need the extra dimension.

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.
