Toshiba to sell 8GB high-speed SD card in January

Toshiba plans to start selling in January next year an 8G-byte high-speed SD memory card

Toshiba plans to start selling in January next year an 8G-byte high-speed SD (Secure Digital) memory card.

The card will support the "class 4" high-speed data writing specification of the SD Card Association and be able to record data at 6M bytes per second, said Toshiba. That kind of speed plus the high capacity of the card makes it well suited to applications such as video recording using devices such as Matsushita Electric Industrial's (Panasonic's) recently announced HDC-SD1 camcorder.

The camera records high-definition video to an SD card at 6M bps (bits per second). Toshiba's new card should be able to hold about 3 hours worth of such video.

The card will cost about YEN 40,000 (AUD$440) in Japan. It will go on sale in Japan, North America and Europe in early January.

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.

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.
