Apple announces Sep. 12 special event

Apple iPhone 5 expected to be revealed on September 12

Rumors and speculation are about to come to a head. Apple has announced it will indeed hold a special media event on September 12 in San Francisco. The event will take place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater, beginning at 10 a.m. Pacific/1 p.m. Eastern.

The invitation received by Macworld features the text Its almost here along with a large number 12 casting the shadow of a numeral 5, which would seem to lend credence to suggestions that Apple will be announcing the iPhone 5. The companys also likely to discuss iOS 6, which it first announced at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June and is due for release in the fall.

Plenty of whispers about the iPhone 5 have been circulating in the past months, and much of them have centered around a September 12 event. Among the most pervasive rumors have been a phone with a larger display, the addition of LTE networking, and a new dock-connector port. In about a week, well see which of these rumors are true and which are dead.

Macworld will, of course, be on hand with live coverage of the event as it happens, along with plenty of followup analysis and opinion. Stay tuned.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
