In Pictures: New Firefox mobile OS

Mozilla officially jumped into the crowded mobile OS field at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where the company demonstrated an early version of Firefox OS, which is being developed under the Boot to Gecko project.

6. Partner support

Mozilla intends to sign up partners to support Firefox OS on several fronts representing software, hardware and phone carriers. Thus far, Telefónica of Spain and Mozilla partnered to launch the Open Web Device platform, and Deutsche Telekom of Germany will lend its own employees for development support. Mozilla's developers are working with Qualcomm to write Firefox OS around that company's mobile processors. Sprint is on board to be the first U.S. carrier to support Firefox OS phones on its network. One interesting partner is Adobe -- although known for Flash, the company in recent years has moved toward supporting HTML5 development in the mobile device sector.

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.
