Sony, iPod make beautiful music together

Sony unveiled a pair of iPod devices Thursday: the ICF-C1iP and the ZS-S2iP, a clock radio and boom box, respectively. You know the drill: the iPod docks in front of the unit, where it both supplies music and gets charged. Both include remote controls. Both devices support most iPod models and come in black or white, so you're pretty much covered no matter what you've got.

The clock radio can be set to wake you up with a buzzer, the radio, or the iPod; the boom box includes a digital AM/FM tuner and an integrated CD/CD-R/CD-RW player. The iPod tray retracts if you don't want to get sand in the connector at the beach. Both units will sell for a mere US$100 when they go on sale in August.

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.
