How many e-books are being read?

Amazon introduced the Kindle in 2007, but it wasn’t until Christmas 2011 that sales of e-readers and tablets began to soar. Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Apple all reported huge increases in sales of digital reading devices during the 2011 holiday season. Apple sold 15 million iPads in the last three months of 2011, and Amazon sold more than 1 million Kindles each week in December 2011. A Pew study reported that the number of Americans who owned one of these devices nearly doubled from 10% to 19% between December 2011 and January 2012. In the United States alone, e-book sales rose 177% in 2011, generating revenue of nearly $1 billion.

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.

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.

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.
