Samsung’s Galaxy Note “mini”

As expected, Samsung announced an 8-inch touch tablet, the Galaxy Note 8, which fills in between its 5.5-inch smartphone, the Galaxy S Note II, and the full-sized tablet, the Galaxy Note 10.1. In terms of specs, it’s a direct rival to Apple’s popular iPad mini.

Other details: 1280 x 800 pixel resolution (versus 1024 x 768 for iPad mini); Android 4.1.2 (Jellybean), 1.6 GHz Cortex-A9 processor with 2 GB of RAM; 1.3-megapixel front-facing cam, 5-megapixel rear-facing, and a 4,600 mAh battery. Weight, 11.9 ounces; dimensions: 8.3 x 5.3 x 0.31 inches. It has a pressure-sensitive pen based on technology from Wacom; 11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 standard; HSPA+, LTE optional. No news on pricing.

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.
