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

Mixing modern style with business needs

Package Tracker Package Tracker does exactly what you think it does, and it does it very well. The app tracks package status information from more than 60 different carriers, and issues Live Tile and systemwide notifications when your delivery's status changes. Bing Maps integration shows the last known location of any given package, while a cloud sign-in option syncs your info across multiple Windows 8, Windows RT, and Windows Phone devices.

Package histories? Check. Package status sharing? Check. The ability to pin individual packages to the Start screen? Check. Heck, Package Tracker even has a baked-in barcode scanner. This app is definitely $3 well spent.

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.
