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

Book Readers

Despite the absence of an e-ink screen, the iPhone proved to be a popular device for e-reading, and the iPad promises to be a popular e-book device as well. Apple has decided to allow for vigorous e-book competition on the iPad by shipping the device without Apple's iBooks application. Instead, iPad owners will get to choose between Apple's application, and those from competing booksellers.

To show off its tablet plans, Amazon recently launched a new Web page on its site detailing the Kindle app for "Tablet Computers including the iPad." Barnes & Noble is also coming out with an iPad application, and Oceanhouse Media plans on bringing the works of Dr. Seuss onto the iPad as it has done with the iPhone, according to Just Another iPad Blog.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
