iPad apps: A sneak peek

Here's a quick look at what to expect in the coming weeks once iPad-specific apps begin rolling into the iTunes App Store


Before the iPad was released it was being hailed as a possible savior of print magazines by inspiring people to pay for print media in digital form. Many were expecting magazine publishers to show off interactive applications during Apple's iPad launch, but that didn't happen. However, magazine publisher Conde Nast recently released a list of magazines that will be delivered as iPad applications in the coming months, including GQ, Vanity Fair, Wired, Glamour and The New Yorker, according to The New York Times. Conde Nast has already seen some success with offering iPhone versions of its magazines. The Times reports the magazine publisher sold more than 15,000 copies of its GQ January 2010 issue for iPhone, and close to 7,000 copies of the December 2009 issue of GQ.

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.
