The iPhone 3GS adds voice recognition and more applications

Apple today took the wraps off the company's next iPhone, the 'iPhone 3GS,' saying it is two to three times faster that current models, offers digital video capabilities in its new camera and will go on sale June 19 in the U.S.

The 32GB model will sell for US$299; a 16GB model will go for US$199. Both come in black or white, the same color choices now offered. And Apple plans to sell the 8GB version of the current iPhone 3G for $99 beginning today.

The announcement came at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), where the company also announced that its next operating system, Mac OS X 10.6, Snow Leopard, will go on sale in September as a US$29 upgrade from the current OS.

Apple officials also announced changes to the company's laptop line-up as well, including a new 15-in. MacBook pro.

But the focus of the event was clearly the new iPhone and the iPhone OS 3.0, which will be released on June 17.

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.
