In Pictures: 11 awesome Android tablet widgets

Give your home screen a massive power boost with these 11 excellent widgets for Android tablets


Want to keep up with tweets without leaving your tablet's home screen? Grab Plume for Twitter. Plume offers four different home-screen widgets, ranging from 4 by 1 inches to 4 by 4 inches. But initial size isn't a major issue here, since Plume supports Android's widget-resizing feature: With a couple of quick taps you can expand or shrink any Plume widget to whatever size you like. The Plume widgets provide a scrollable view of your Twitter timeline, along with options to view your @-mentions or direct messages. You can compose new tweets from the widget, too. Plume is available in a free but ad-supported version, and in an ad-free premium version for $3.

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

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

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.

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.
