Gear of the year

Forget boring tech: Here are some of the most innovative, interesting products we’ve seen (or are waiting to see) this year.

Pioneer AVIC-F500BT


It's not the destination; it's how you get there that counts. Pioneer's first dash-mounted navigation and entertainment system gets you there in style — without your having to rip out your factory-installed stereo. Just connect it to your car radio's auxiliary port; the F500BT gives you voice control over your cell phone and an Apple iPod via Bluetooth connections. A 5.8-inch touch-panel display offers big, easy-to-read maps, along with turn-by-turn directions and all of the other things you expect from a world-class GPS device.

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.
