In Pictures: 10 essential Windows 8 travel apps

You're in good hands with Windows 8

Translator Free

Another app using Google technology without the Google name, Translator Free employs the Google Translate engine to translate text from one language to another instantly. If you're familiar with Google Translate, you know that your mileage will indeed vary when it comes to the accuracy of the translations -- especially to and from non-European languages -- but it's the best you're gonna get when you have to talk down an Estonian supercomputer bent on unleashing a nuclear holocaust. Or, you know, when you want to get directions to a foreign McDonald's.

For some reason, we couldn't find an online link to the app, but searching for "Translator Free" in the Windows Store itself turns it up lickety-split.

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.
