The 20 million figure has been reported by Korean-based news outlet Yonhap News, but has not officially been confirmed by Samsung.

The milestone refers to global channel sales of the Galaxy S4 rather than how many devices are actually in the hands of consumers, but it's still a hugely impressive figure.

The 20 million number means that Galaxy S4 sales are approximately 1.7 times faster than sales of Samsung's previous Galaxy S III at the same point in the product life cycle, according to Yonhap News.

Samsung revealed back in May that it had shipped 10 million Galaxy S4 smartphones globally, less than a month after the smartphone was launched.

By contrast, the Galaxy S III took 50 days after its launch to ship the same 10 million units, while the S II took five months and the original Galaxy S took almost seven months.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
