Samsung sets third quarter launch for 1GB MMCmicro card

Samsung Electronics Co. plans to begin selling in the third quarter of this year an MMCmicro memory card with 1G byte of storage capacity, it said Thursday.

MMCmicro is one of three new memory card formats that have been designed for use in cell phones and other small, portable electronics gadgets. It was largely developed by Samsung Electronics and is competing against microSD backed by SanDisk and Memory Stick Micro, which was developed by Sony and SanDisk. The new cards are smaller than existing memory cards so they and the companion card slots require less space inside devices and help manufacturers keep the size of their gadgets small.

Samsung announced no price for the new card.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
