Smartphone apps banned by Apple, Google, and RIM

Eight notorious apps from gambling to baby shaking that were yanked from app stores.

WikiLeaks

WikiLeaks, a controversial whistleblower site that routinely posts classified documents online, has come under a lot of scrutiny from the United States government, which last year pressured Amazon to stop hosting WikiLeaks on its servers. Shortly after Amazon ditched the site, Apple kicked the site's unofficial application from its App Store. An Apple spokeswoman told the New York Times that the company removed the app because "apps must comply with all local laws and may not put an individual or group in harm's way." WikiLeaks fans can still get access to multiple variations of WikiLeaks unofficial apps on the Android Market, however.

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.
