Google Mail Checker and Send from Gmail

Google Mail Checker and Send from Gmail Free, Google account required

If you have a Gmail account and don’t mind turning Gmail into your default email program, these two extensions are no-brainers. Google Mail Checker puts a small “M” icon on your Chrome address bar that lists how many unopened messages are waiting for you. Tap on the Send from Gmail icon -- an “M” with an arrow -- and Chrome strips out the URL of the current page, sticking it inside a newly formed Gmail message, ready for you to finish and send.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni

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.
