RIM makeover

Well, technically Research in Motion CEO Thorstein Heins, who took over that position in January, isn’t a totally new face – he has been with the BlackBerry maker since 2007. But his successors, co-CEOs Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie had been in charge since the 1980s, through the company’s dominance of enterprise wireless and more recently during the BlackBerry’s fall from popularity in the face of growing iPhone and Android acceptance in the enterprise (one recent report pegged RIM’s U.S. share as being just 1.6%).

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.

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.
