Originally reported by German technology Web site, but posted by, an unnamed source says that Apple will unveil iOS 5 and a revamped MobileMe service in the first or second week of April.

Apple traditionally shows off features of its next-generation iOS platform a few months before it launches new iPhone hardware; in 2010, the company unveiled iOS 4 in April, and then launched the iPhone 4 in July.

iOS 5 is widely expected to include changes to the iPhone and iPad notifications system, along with revamped multitasking, and improved voice commands. Strong rumours also suggest that Apple plans to improve its MobileMe service by making it free (currently $119) and having it store personal user data like photos, music and videos.

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.
