In Pictures: 12 Bluetooth gadgets for geeks

Bluetooth, the short range wireless data communications technology, is in a huge range of products these days, and not just computers and phones.

Nike launched its line of “smart” sports shoes with multiple Bluetooth Smart sensors in the sole last June. The Nike Hyperdunk+, Lebron X+ basketball shoe, LunarTR1+ and Lunar Hyperworkout+ shoes each have four pressure sensors that gather information from different parts of the foot and send it via Bluetooth to the Nike+ Training app (iOS only). The app tracks vertical jump, quickness, calories, "NikeFuel" points, and other performance data. The shoes cost a hefty $250, but it appears Nike has quietly dropped the line. If you’re committed to proving geeks can jump with hard data, you can still score a pair on eBay.

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.
