Gmail gets a new look

Gmail themes unveiled.

Google has been undergoing some aesthetic overhauls lately. First they whip iGoogle into a themed, paneled frenzy. Now Google has added a splash of colour to the Gmail inboxes.

Google has unveiled more than 30 themes, and says more are on the way. You can deck out your Gmail account with a nature theme, a retro notebook look, or a weather-based theme. Most of the palates look nice, and some of the styles are busier than others, but none of them appear too distracting. None except the Terminal one, that is: Google says it's "an old school ascii theme [that] was the result of a bet between two engineers." Still, I think its awesomeness outweighs its impracticality.

To change your inbox, go to Gmail's Settings and then select the Themes tab.

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.
