Fujitsu LifeBook UH900 hands-on

Fujitsu LifeBook UH900 hands-on

Fujitsu's LifeBook UH900 is one of those impossibly-small, eye catching devices that you can't help but want to take a look at, and so we gave in to our baser urges at CES 2010 and grabbed some hands-on time.  Anyone looking for a heavy duty keyboard should keep on walking, but we were reasonably impressed by how Fujitsu have balanced scale with tactile feel; you'd be happy pecking out an email or two, and it's more than sufficient for URLs and Tweets.

Spring Design Alex drops February 22 for $399

Spring Design have announced pricing and availability details for their Alex dual-display ebook reader, and as we expected without the might of Barnes & Noble behind them it's going to come in more expensive than what you'd pay for a nook.  As of February 22nd you'll be able to order an Alex - which has a 6-inch E Ink display up top, and a 3.5-inch color touchscreen beneath - from the Spring Design site, where it will be priced at $399.

Your money does get you a few extra features that B&N deny to nook owners.  For instance, Spring Design are billing the Alex as the first ereader to offer internet access while you read, with the ability to instantly flip pages from the smaller browser display up to the larger e-ink panel for easier reading.  They've also left access to the underlying Android OS open, which means you can check email, download third-party Android apps and do pretty much everything you'd do on an Android smartphone.
