In Pictures: Chrome on Android. The tour.

Google is making its hot Chrome browser available to its hot mobile platform. Find out what you gain - and lose.

A different approach to bookmarks

The standard Android browser (at left) uses a simple visual approach to displaying bookmarks. Chrome is much more complicated, as shown in the three screens at right. First, there are three bookmark folders: desktop, mobile, and other. When you open any of those folders, you get thumbnail icons for each page rather than a preview thumbnail. You can still get those thumbnails if you tap the grid icon button at the bottom of the screen.

To save a bookmark in Chrome, tap the star icon button in the menu; it replaces the Add Bookmark menu item in the standard browser. Also, Chrome has no history window for pages visited, unlike the standard Android browser.

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.
