In Pictures: 10 essential Windows 8 travel apps

You're in good hands with Windows 8

Inrix Traffic

Whether you're traveling locally or in unknown environs, nothing is more frustrating than traffic. While color-coded traffic overlays on maps are nothing new, Inrix Traffic's sleek interface shows exactly why you're not getting where you’re trying to go and displays when you will (maybe, possibly, at the earliest) get there, with a series of icons illustrating each motoring misadventure impeding your commute. Now you'll have visual proof when you tell your boss that you were late due to no fewer than three bottlenecks, four roadside incidents and six construction zones.

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.
