Mexico City goes for citywide wireless

We're all for unlimited free wireless coverage wherever we go, but we'd prefer access to water--if forced to make a choice. According to the AP , Mexico City is the latest to add its name to the growing list of urban areas looking to provide free high-speed wireless.

The city's mayor has made the project "the highest priority," having inked a deal with a Chinese corporation ZTE Corp. to provide wireless access to all 8.7 million residents. Yet, according to the AP, that could be overly ambitious, considering the fact that the city continues to have problems providing basics like water and electricity to all residents.

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.
