Water Music

US-based Oregon Scientific may just have come up with a way of relieving the monotony for those of us who swim dozens of laps at the pool each day by releasing the world's first waterproof MP3 player.

Not only is the compact MP-120 unit waterproof, it is specifically designed to be used while swimming and can operate safely at a depth of around about 1 metre. Out of the water, the MP-120 works as any other digital music player, but when those aquatic urges strike, you simply attach a small plug to the end of the unit to seal it and don the specially provided rubber headphones.

The MP-120 has an LCD backlit screen which can be seen under water and if you run out of music tracks, there's always the FM Radio to keep you occupied. We'll have a review up soon, so make sure you check back to the GoodGearGuide.

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.

Steph Mundell


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
