Microsoft Silverlight 3 launch event set

Company on July 10 to tout rich media technology as well as design tools platform

Microsoft is planning a launch event on July 10 for its Silverlight 3 technology and the accompanying Expression Studio 3 toolset, a company representative said Friday evening.

The company has not yet announced official ship dates for the two technologies, the representative said. But the launch event, planned for the San Francisco Bay Area, is intended as an opportunity to highlight the work customers and partners have been doing with Silverlight and Expression Studio, and to tout features of the two releases. Silverlight is Microsoft's plug-in technology for rich media applications.

Version 3 has been slated to offer offline capabilities such as search engine optimization and multi-touch support, as well as hardware-based graphics acceleration.

Expression Studio has featured Microsoft's Expression suite of application design tools  for building Windows and Web interfaces.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
