Microsoft announces Xbox HDTV to match Apple HDTV

If ever there were a year for Apple to jump into the television market, it's 2013. Smart TVs loaded with apps are becoming more popular, and TV makers are gearing up to push high-def OLED HDTVs for mainstream adoption in 2014, according to NPD DisplaySearch.

This sets the stage for Apple to introduce the AppleTV, featuring apps from NBC, ABC, CBS, and other big-time content providers for viewing on-demand content. AppleTV will also have advanced features such as built-in AirPlay and Siri integration.

Not to be outdone, Microsoft will announce that the Xbox HDTV will ship sometime in 2014. This package will sport a built-in Xbox 720 (also announced in 2013), Kinect 2.0, and augmented-reality glasses.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
