Computex 2009: First day highlights from Asia's largest tech show

Computex Taipei is in full swing, and PC World has you covered for all the big tech news coming from the show.

ECS T800: A Vaio P Series Terminator?



Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) showed off its first netbook with Google's Android operating system. The T800 has an 8.9-inch screen, Texas Instruments OMAP 3 CPU (with ARM processing cores), a small keypad and weighs less than a kilogram (2.2 pounds) despite its metallic casing.

ECS is a contract manufacturer and will likely market it to mobile phone network operators and big PC vendors. An ECS representative said the device will likely be available in the fourth quarter for less than US$500. More details.

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.
