In Pictures: 10 great work tools we can't live without

The promise of consumerisation is workers choosing their own tools to get the job done. Here are our favorites.

Windows Phone 8 People App

I recently switched to from an iPhone Windows Phone 8. It may not have all the apps I’ve become used to, but the People app – its contact manager – almost makes up for the lack. I’ve got all my contacts, listed by name, with all their contact information in one place. I can make a phone call, send a text, send an email to any of their multiple accounts, check their Facebook photo albums, and see their latest status updates on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter all in one place. The app does a great job of automatically merging duplicate contacts, and if it somehow misses one, it’s easy to link them manually.

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.
