In Pictures: Coolest, hottest and strangest gadgets from Taiwan's Computex 2012 show

Windows 8 is hot, the devices are strange, and the experimentation is cool

A reboot for the hapless Google TV project is underway: Honeywld Technology, a small Taiwan-based device maker, demonstrated a Google TV set-top box that lets TVs play movies streamed directly from Android 4.0 smartphones or tablets. The box, running Android 4.0, will also synchronize multimedia content including pictures. The box has an ARM CPU, 4GB of flash storage, 1GB of DDR3 memory and a MicroSD slot; ports for Ethernet and HDMI video; and Wi-Fi as an option. Price estimates by the vendor: $95-$120. The mobile devices will need to install an app, which is being developed.

The first version of Google TV was used in Sony's Internet TV and Logitech's Revue set-top box, both now discontinued.

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.
