In Pictures: 13 highly productive Android apps that play nice with your PC

Android apps

Tasker Tasker doesn't directly meld with your PC, but it's just so insanely useful that I couldn't leave it off the list. This handy-dandy app lets you automate virtually every aspect of your phone, using customizable "profiles" that launch specific actions when certain criteria are met.

For example, you can have your phone disable its cellular modem and connect to Wi-Fi when you're at home, automatically start playing music when you're near your Bluetooth-equipped car, turn off your GPS and Bluetooth to save juice at work, or even—if you want to get really creative—tackle super-specialized tasks that can help you get things done for your specific line of work.

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.
