Available in two models — wood grain or high-gloss piano white — the Heritage is a digital radio device that resembles a 1958 traditional high-end radio, according to the company.

The speaker sits on top of a frequency spectrum and two dials for volume and tuning. An LCD screen is situated between the two dials.

Other design features of the digital radio include a starburst LCD screen, and a metal grille with real wood enclosure.

The Heritage device contains two 10-watt stereo sound speakers and comes with a remote control. It runs on AC power.

In addition to digital radio using the DAB+ standard, the Bush Heritage comes with Bluetooth wireless audio streaming as a standard feature. It can also broadcast non-digital FM frequencies.

Both variations of the new Bush Heritage digital radio (HERITAGE and HERITAGEW) will be available in July for an RRP of $249.

The device will be sold through Australian retail outlets Big W, David Jones, Harvey Norman, The Good Guys, Retravision and Dick Smith.

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.
