PS3 firmware 1.10 upgrade confirmed

It's no big surprise but Sony has announced (on Thursday, November 9) that it has upgraded the PlayStation 3 firmware to enable it to actually use the PlayStation Network online service. The move up to version 1.10 comes in the nick of time -- just two days before the November 11 Japan launch of the PS3.

At the same time, word also comes that the PSP is to get another firmware bump. Apparently, upgrading (if you want to call it that) to version 3.0 will unlock the magic that allows the PSP to hook up with the (60GB version of) PS3.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
