In Pictures: The best Windows 8 business apps for portable productivity

Mixing modern style with business needs

Touchdown The Windows 8 Mail app is dreadfully meh. What's an Exchange-using businessperson to do? Easy: Download NitroDesk's $20 TouchDown app.

This beta version isn't quite as polished as its iOS and Android counterparts, and it doesn't quite go toe-to-toe with Outlook in terms of features, but it does sync email, calendar events, contact info, notes, and tasks without a hitch. (The native Mail app doesn't do all that!) Plus, it packs support for advanced Exchange features like PIN enforcement, remote wiping, and on-device data encryption, though some features are definitely missing in this early release.

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.
