In Pictures: Customise your Android device with CyanogenMod 9

The recently released CyanogenMod 9 is built upon Android 4.0, codenamed Ice Cream Sandwich, and is free to download. Here are nine things to know about this latest edition.

CyanogenMod settings merged

CyanogenMod settings merged into Android’s CM7 had its own settings menu, and it enabled the user to adjust some of the same categories listed in the original Android 2.3’s settings, but with more choices. For example, the sound quality and volume for alerts, notifications and rings can be adjusted in the original Android 2.3 menus, and in far greater detail in CM7’s. CM9 does away with CM7’s separate listing of settings -- the CyanogenMod developers merged most of their customization options into the main ICS code and UI to make things simpler and easier to access, and a lot less confusing.

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.
