CES - World's smallest Windows Vista-capable computer

First shown at Bill Gates's keynote, the OQO model 02 is being billed as the world's smallest Windows Vista-capable computer and the first computer in the UMPC Pro category. The miniature device weighs just 1 pound and measures 5.6 by 3.3 by 1 inches.

According to OQO, the model 02 features numerous improvements over its predecessor. It's up to four times faster, and has a significantly brighter display (up to six times brighter than the model 01). The improved keyboard is now backlit and has capacitive TouchScrollers for easy navigation. The model 02 also provides an array of wireless connectivity: EV-DO Wireless WAN, 802.11 a/b/g, and optional EV-DO 3G support.

Prices start at US$1499 for a unit with a 1.5-GHz processor, a 60GB hard drive, and 1GB of memory. The OQO model 02 is due to ship by the end of the first quarter.

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.
