In Pictures: Windows 8 Release Preview - a visual tour

Here are some of the more interesting improvements - and quirks - of Windows 8 RP, as Microsoft sprints to the finish line

The Bing app for iPad

Fourteen months ago, Microsoft released an iPad app called, succinctly, Bing for iPad. I’ve used it quite a bit, and it works well.

Here’s the home screen for the Bing for iPad app, which you can download free at the Apple AppStore. Although the screen here is limited to 1024 x 768 pixels (I shot this on an iPad 2), you can see some uncanny similarities. (Click to enlarge.) Tap the weather tile and you get an hourly and a ten-day forecast, just like the Metro Bing Weather app. Tap the Finance tile and you can put your choice of three stocks or indices on the screen. No big deal.

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.
