And like the LIFEBOOKs, the Q704 also deserves a video entry before we start with photos. So listen to Markus Seifart as he tells us interesting facts about the STYLISTIC Q704.
The STYLISTIC Q704 has a Full-HD display which is not based on Sharp’s IGZO. You can get an anti-glare (with LED backlight) or a glare (with IPS) version depending on your preference. The display size has an incredible value of 12.5 inches. In my opinion, this size is pretty awesome but may be too big for some of you. However, this size allows productive working while it keeps the device thin and light.
But working on a tablet-PC isn’t that easy. Therefore, the Q704 can be easily transformed to a fully functional notebook by attaching the device to an external keyboard.
The keyboard is something very special. While the Q704 is not attached to the keyboard, it will automatically reduce its power to extend the battery runtime. If you plug it into the keyboard, the power will be extended. However, this only works if the keyboard contains a second battery.
There will be 2 different keyboard. The one on the pictures is a little bit thicker since it contains a second battery. If you don’t need the second battery you can get a thin keybord without the battery inside it.
Before we take a closer look on the keyboard, we will first check out the interfaces of the tablet. On the left side there is the power button, the volume buttons and a button which can be allocated to some functions.
The front only contains the dock connector and some slots for the keyboard to stick to the tablet-PC.
On the right side there are the SIM-slot, the micro-SD slot, a micro-USB 2.0 and an USB 3.0-port. Those ports are protected by a cap. You can also find the audio jack and the pen there.
On the left side of the keyboard, there are an additional USB 3.0-port, a HDMI-port and an Ethernet-port.
On the right side, a second USB 3.0-port and a VGA-port are provided
The battery is approximated to run for about 10 hours (without the keyboard). The Q704 is also partly water- and dustproof. You shouldn’t take a bath with it but getting some water on it won’t destroy it.
The starting price is not fixed yet but I estimate something at the area of at least 1.500€. More techincal information on the device can be found here.
Don’t forget to check back tomorrow, as we inspect the Q584 in our last installment covering the new touch devices.
