Lift the Fujitsu 702 tablet out of the box, insert a SIM card, power up and you're ready for a day on the road. Light but robust, you can send an email, do your banking, then make a PowerPoint presentation.
The Q702 is quick thanks to an Intel Core i5 processor and a fast drive, it boots in seconds, and multitasking was no problem.
The screen is non-reflective and allows input via a large on-screen keyboard, touch, or by the stylus which is housed in a recess on the side. The pen allows sketches, drawings and notes to be made on the spot. All work effortlessly through the installed Windows 8 Pro operating system.
Back at the office, the tablet clicks positively into the keyboard dock, which has a separate battery, allowing up to 10 hours use (although I only managed eight hours during my evaluation). The dock is sturdy and allows positioning of the screen at the required angle. The keyboard is responsive, suffering little from its size limitations.
Like in tablet form, all the usual daily tasks are performed easily. I watched catch-up television, played video clips, and connected to social media. The Q702 has 2 cameras, which are useful for quick snaps but won't rival a digital SLR for quality, even at their highest resolution.
Connectivity covers every need: USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, LAN, VGA, and HDMI. There is also an SD card slot for expansion.
Security is paramount with a mobile device, and the Q702 has BIOS password protection and a fingerprint sensor, as well as Intel's encryption features.
At 850g, the Fujitsu Q702 is portable, powerful and flexible, and ideal for the mobile professional. It performed every task I asked of it competently. It is quiet, but did become a little hot after some hours of use.
