Google, Yahoo and Baidu have found themselves atop Asia's search rankings, with Korean Internet users looking for information most often, a comScore survey released Tuesday said.

Google led the region with 39.1 percent of all searches in April 2008, followed by Yahoo with 24 percent. Baidu ranked third with 16.7 percent, and was the highest-ranking Asia-based search engine, one of five that appeared in comScore's top 10.

Among Asians, Korean Internet users conducted the most searches during the month, with an average of 103.5, followed by users in Japan with 102.6, and Singapore with 100.9. Chinese searchers were the largest as a group, with 82.8 million. Japan came second with 60.05 million, then India with 28.1 million.

Searches conducted from public computers, such as those found in Internet cafes and those made from mobile devices including PDAs (personal digital assistants) were excluded from the results.

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.

Steph Mundell


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.
