Broadcom’s power-saving GPS chip

Broadcom’s BCM47521 can power all kinds of location-based apps without draining your phone’s battery through frequent, constant location checks. The trick: the chip handles a bunch of tasks on its own, instead of calling for help from the phone’s main processor and memory. The chip cuts the power needed for location-based services, such as geo-fencing or turn-by-turn navigation, but up to 60T, according to Broadcom. It will start appearing in smartphones by mid-2013.

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.
