In Pictures: Android 4.2 - A visual guide to what's new

Google's Android 4.2 release brings bold new flavors to the Jelly Bean platform. Here's a look at the new and noteworthy features it'll bring to your device.

Daydream screensavers

Screensavers hardly seem like an exciting addition, but for anyone who docks his phone or leaves it plugged in and charging during the day, Android 4.2's new Daydream feature may be just what the doctor ordered.

Daydream lets you say "so long" to the boring blank screen and instead pick from a variety of screensavers to gaze upon while your phone is docked, charging, or both. Built-in options include a floating clock, flowing colors, rotating news headlines and a couple of different photo-based screensavers.

Third-party developers will be able to offer their own Daydream designs, too, so we'll likely see more options soon.

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.
