TrackID

This week we learnt of a new and exciting feature in Sony Ericsson's range of Walkman phones, called TrackID.

Basically, TrackID is an application within the latest Walkman phones (we reviewed the latest W850i) that enables you to record a few seconds of a song, send it to Sony Ericsson's new music recognition service and have information about that song sent to your phone almost immediately.

So if you've ever heard part of a song, but can't remember what it is called or who the artist is, then this is definitely for you. The process is surprisingly simple as well; just record up to five seconds of music through the phones built-in microphone or even record directly off the FM radio, and as long as the track is listed in Sony Ericsson's database, track title and artist information will be sent to your phone.

A simple innovation, yet so effective.

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.
