Sega confirms Sonic as main character in Needlemouse

Well, you didn't think it was going to be Big the Cat, did you?

You've got to hand it to Sega. They could have just made one simple announcement that Sonic the Hedgehog would be the only playable character in Project Needlemouse and won over critical and fan favor in one fell swoop. Instead, they trotted out the rogues gallery of annoying playable characters that have polluted Sonic's games over the last few years, striking two characters off of the list each day. Thus, today's announcement holds even greater weight, since there was a chance, be it ever so slight, that Amy or Big the Cat would serve as the game's protagonist.

Not only are we blessed with the knowledge that none of the annoying new characters will sully Sonic's next adventure, but we've also been graced with the first concept image for Project Needlemouse too, showing a contemporary take on one of Sonic's oldest and weakest enemies. Project Needlemouse is due this year on unspecified platforms, though it has been stated that the game will be in HD.

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.
