In Pictures: 15 tablet apps for ditching dead trees

These tablet-optimised apps bring your business one step closer to going tree-free and totally mobile.

CamCard

Platforms: iOS ($7.99), Android ($11.99)

Keeping track of business cards is almost impossible without a Rolodex—and really, who’s got a Rolodex these days? CamCard is like a virtual Rolodex on your tablet. This app, available for iOS and Android (there’s even an iPad-specific HD version), is an advanced business card reader. Just snap a photo of a business card, and the app extracts relevant details, such as company name, job title, and phone number, then adds them to your contact list. CamCard is fairly effective at reading cards and converting text, but you can also edit fields and add notes manually.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
