Battery manufacturer Duracell have revealed their very own wireless charging device, dubbed 'myGrid'.

The myGrid claims to be as fast as standard 'old fashioned' wired charging and can power a variety of gadgets wirelessly, including handsets from Nokia, Motorola, Blackberry and Apple, it can also support a range of MP3 players.

The super thin charge pad knows when a compatible device is placed on it, instantly beginning the charge, the pad will then turn off automatically when nothing is present.

Various sources are speculating that this technology has been licensed from WildCharge, who released their extremely similar wire-free solution earlier in the year. This news comes shortly after the Wireless Power Consortium announced that they were edging closer to finalizing an industry standard for wireless power.

The myGrid is due for release in October, although no price has been announced.

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.
