BlackBerry Storm 2 coming in September?

Report claims handset will feature Wi-Fi

Research in Motion (RIM) looks set to launch a new version of its BlackBerry Storm handset.

The BlackBerry Storm was RIM's first ever touchscreen handset, and it's rumoured that an updated version could hit the market as soon as September.

US website SlashGear claimed a source "very close to the issue" had revealed the launch date and that the handset was likely "addresses one of the biggest criticisms of the first smartphone, in that it will support Wi-Fi".

The website also said it had been told the handset would be "an even better pro-consumer device than the first Storm".

As ever, we were unable to get confirmation from RIM about the rumoured new models, but when the BlackBerry Storm was unveiled late last year, we were told that it was the first in a new product range for RIM.

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.

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.
