23 console games on the iPhone

A look at 26 different titles on the iPhone that gamers would consider "real" video games. Familiar franchises and known names that are a little more than the usual casual fare

19 The Secret of Monkey Island

Not content to release a straight port of the first game in the much-beloved Monkey Island series, LucasArts went all out, delivering a remastered Special Edition with a new musical score, new art, and full voiceovers. Much like the recently released Xbox Live Arcade version of The Secret of Monkey Island, the best part of this edition of the point-and-click classic is the ability to see what it looked like in the past; at any point in the game a simple two-finger swipe across the screen will cause the newly updated art and remastered audio to fade away and the game's original graphics will appear. This is a feature that those who remember the nearly 20-year-old PC game will find themselves using again and again. The good news for those fans is that they shouldn't worry that they're purchasing a second-hand product, as the iPhone version is roughly equivalent to the Xbox Live Arcade release.

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.
