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

21 The Sims 3

The Sims is one of the most successful PC franchises in history, and EA has been (mostly unsuccessfully) attempting to port spinoffs of the franchise to platforms other than the PC for years. While swapping out a mouse for an obviously less accurate, chubby finger as the main control method for a game has its downsides, The Sims 3 works pretty well on the iPhone. It's fair to say that the game is more or less a significantly paired down adaptation of the PC game of the same name. We were disappointed with the iPhone version due to its lack of house-construction features and thinned-out customization options across the board, but if you're the type of Sims fan that likes to focus on building relationships amongst characters, the App Store port might get the job done for you.

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.
