In Pictures: iPhone to Android. How to make the switch

If the Galaxy S III or other smartphone tempts you, here's how you can still fit it in Apple's ecosystem

Syncing iCloud contacts and calendars

iCloud's auto-syncing contacts and calendars make it supereasy to keep your Mac, iPhone, and iPad up to date with each other. They even work with Windows -- but not Android.

That is, unless you buy two utilities for $3.77 each from developer Marten Gajda: Smoothsync for Cloud Calendar and Smoothsync for Cloud Contacts. Both are available in the Google Play app store.

Sign in with your iCloud credentials, and your Android smartphone is now part of the iCloud family.

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.
