In Pictures: 8 tech gadgets that multitask

Looking for a really multifunctional gift? These mobile devices offer at least two (and sometimes more) uses -- and in very imaginative ways.

PhoneSoap Charger Have you thought about where your smartphone has been? How many door handles, stair railings, water faucets, etc. do you touch throughout the day, and then blithely touch your phone afterward? (And then put it to your face to make a call...) Make you nervous? Just drop it into the PhoneSoap phone sanitizer.

This device, which does double duty as a charger, uses UV-C lamps to kill any bacteria or germs on the surface. It can fit any phone up to 6.0 x 5.0 x 1.7 in., so it will accommodate most large phones. The PhoneSoap cleans your device in only four minutes; acoustic outlets on the bottom let you hear all your notifications. The perfect gift for any germaphobe.

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.
