In Pictures: 15 fun and freaky iPhone mods

These modifications of various Apple mobile devices reflect impressive amounts of ingenuity, skill, and--in some instances--leisure time.


If you still haven’t found an ideal clamshell case to fit your iPad, check out this mod from Apple Noir: It replaces an old iBook G3 screen with an iPad. The modders also had to replace the original keyboard with something that would interface with the iPad. The new iPad is quite an upgrade for the original clamshell iBook. The old laptop featured a 300MHz Power PC processor, 64MB of RAM, a 6GB hard drive, and a 12.2-inch TFT screen with 800-by-600 resolution. The iPad sports a 1GHz processor, 256MB of RAM, a maximum 64GB hard drive, and a 9.7-inch LED backlit display with 1024 by 768 resolution.

    The great thing about this one is that you can write with it too when you're done watching videos!

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.
