Archos upgrades its WiFi line of PMPs

Archos is continuing to extend its line of wireless-enabled portable media players with the 704-WiFi. The big brother to Archos' 604-WiFi, the 704 is stocked with a giant 7-inch touchscreen, 80GB of storage, and of course that sexy wireless capability that means you can stream video from your PC, check e-mail, and scan the Internet using the built-in Opera browser.

Like all PMPs, you can watch video, listen to music, and watch slideshows. If you attach it to the optional $120 DVR Station, the unit can record video from a TV or other source, such as a cable box or DVD player. It can also handle PlaysForSure content, so you can download music and videos from any compatible store such as Amazon, AOL, CinemaNow, and Wal-Mart.

Of course, the 704-WiFi isn't exactly tiny, measuring in at 7-by-5-by-.8 inches, and 22 ounces--though a built-in kickstand helps keep the player upright. Nice touch. Battery life is decent: You get 25 hours of music and 5 hours of video.

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.
