In Pictures: Supersonic dream - Remembering the Concorde

Celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the last supersonic passenger flight

It's hard to believe it has been 10 years since the last supersonic Concorde jet flew its final flight. Beginning in 1976, the metal dart-like aircraft flew regular transatlantic flights for 27 years. Only 20 were built, and in the end, only one of them ever crashed, but it was that crash and other ongoing issues that ultimately doomed the airplane. British Airways retired its Concorde fleet on October 24, 2003, and the last U.S. flight was in November 2003, when it was delivered from New York to a museum in Seattle. Here we take a look at the history of a true technological marvel.

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.
