In Pictures: 10 mobile startups to watch

As a catch-all term, “mobile” can mean anything from a me-too app to an elaborate augmented reality platform.


Founders: Ben Lilienthal and Jerry Norton; founders of the VoIP conferencing company Vapps.

What it does: Provides a platform that lets developers add voice recognition to apps and devices.

Why it's interesting: OneTok is a cloud-based platform that lets developers configure any word or phrase to invoke any activity. OneTok gives developers libraries that address standard audio hurdles on the device, such as echo cancellation, noise suppression and audio compression. For consumers, OneTok lets you interact with and use apps through simple voice commands. Instead of jabbing at buttons while driving or typing, users of smartphones and tablets need only to speak to control navigation apps, enter logins or initiate web searches.

Funding: $1.5 million from RRE Ventures and Peter J. Solomon.

Customers: Blackstone Technology Group.

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.

Steph Mundell


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
