In Pictures: Best new technology from Mobile World Congress 2014

Smartphones, tablets, wearables on display at the show

Qualcomm thinks 64-bit is smart After Apple unveiled the first 64-bit mobile processor last fall, Qualcomm said 64-bits was “dumb.” Not any more. The chipmaker unveiled the eight-core Snapdragon 615 chip for mobile devices, with integrated LTE and 4K video rendering. The cores are based on the latest ARM 64-bit architecture called ARMv8. The company announced a quad-core version of the same chip, the Snapdragon 610. Mobile devices will be able decode and wirelessly transmit 4K video at a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels with an integrated H.265 hardware decoder.

LIFEBOOK UH574

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.
