Tech for your pets

You have all of the best gadgets on the block, so why shouldn't your pet be equally tech-savvy? We've rounded up the coolest and weirdest innovations in technology for pets, from the useful to the absurd.

PetsCELL Mobile Phone for Your Dog


You've already upgraded to the iPhone 3G, so now it's Fido's turn. The PetsCELL PetsMobility is a voice-enabled, waterproof, GPS cell phone optimized for animals. Thanks to the GPS technology combined with the two-way communication, you can track a runaway pet or receive an alert when your pup wanders beyond the programmable geofence-boundaries you can set up for your dog on the PetsMobility Web site. The water-resistant device has a microphone and a speaker in case you want to chat with your dog while it's away. On the more practical side, the device also has Call Owner and Call Center buttons, so if somebody finds your dog, they can notify you that it's safe. The system has an external temperature sensor and a USB port too, so you can download the dog's current location.
This cell phone costs quite a bit more than the iPhone 3G, however, at $400 plus a monthly service fee. You can purchase PetsCELL via the PetsMobility Web site.

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.
