LogMeIn has announced a new version of its LogMeIn Ignition remote access app that has been optimised for tablets running Google's Android operating system, such as the Optus MyTab, the Samsung Galaxy Tab and the Dell Streak.

LogMeIn Ignition offers remote desktop access to Macs and Windows PCs. According to LogMeIn, the iPad version of the app, which launched in April 2010, is one of the highest grossing apps in Apple's App Store.

New features in the updated version of Ignition include wake-on-LAN, remote sound and multi-monitor switching.

The new version of the app will be available free to owners of the current version of Ignition for Android. The app can be purchased from the Android Market for US$29.99.

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.

Simon Harriott


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.
