Schedule TiVo from your mobile

Have you ever given yourself a giant forehead-smack because you forgot to schedule a TiVo recording? Of course, you can do it over the Web, but if that's not an option, try a mobile phone.

TiVo and Verizon Wireless have launched TiVo Mobile, an application that lets you schedule recordings on a Series2 or Series3 box from a cell phone. In order to download and run the app, you'll need a compatible Verizon Wireless phone, such as the Samsung SCH-a950, LG Chocolate, or LG VX8300, and you'll have to pay a $2.50 monthly fee.

The app features the same familiar TiVo interface, allowing you to browse program listings, as well as search for shows. It will also offer customizable channel lists, recommendations, and a view of the most popular/recorded shows.

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

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
