In Pictures: First look - Firefox 15 for Android

We took a look at Firefox for Android 15 to consider whether it could finally be the browser of choice on an Android device.

Clean minimalist UI

The main browsing screen consists of nothing more than a URL box, and a “+” button to its right, dressed in a contrasting light-and-dark gray scheme with a rounded upper right-corner design. You click the “+” to open a new tab. In browsing mode, the URL box shows the title of the page that’s loaded in the browser window, and its favicon. Tapping the URL box will make the page’s address appear, highlighted, and summon your Android phone’s virtual keyboard to let you enter a new URL. The browser will also switch to a screen that lists three list categories: Top Sites, Bookmarks and History. The look of this UI is clean and sufficient for the minimalist approach Mozilla seems to be going for now.

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
