Cambridge goes HD on its radio

File this in the better late than never category. Cambridge SoundWorks is finally shipping its tabletop HD Radio, the SoundWorks Radio 820HD. The $365 radio comes in onyx and Arctic white (or, uh, black or white), and includes a remote control, dual alarm clocks, a headphone jack, and an auxiliary input for hooking up an MP3 player.

As for HD Radio, you know the song and dance: Digital radio sound quality is much improved over its analog counterpart, and data such as song title, artist, weather, and traffic can scroll across the radio's screen. Most importantly, HD Radio means that radio stations can squeeze multiple content streams on one frequency (a technology called multicasting), so your favorite classic rock station could also broadcast, say, an all-Elvis channel too. Hey, we know a few people who would dig that.

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.
