In Pictures: Tech for geeks and students

Here's a bunch of goodies that will prove useful to students, self-respecting geeks and anybody who loves a good gadget

V-Dimension Helius solar-powered backpack

You know how annoying it is for your phone to die halfway through the school day because you forgot to charge it the night before, especially if you're heading for a new part of the campus and need to access Google Maps. The clever solar panel in the Helius backpack ($129.95, heavily discounted at online vendors) can give your small devices a boost wherever you are.

The pack comes with iPod/iPhone, Mini-USB, Micro-USB, Samsung, LG and Nokia adapters; the company says it will charge a phone in two to three hours. While it can't charge larger devices, the pack has room to carry up to a 15-in. laptop.

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.
