Top scams

Cramming Consumers are billed for optional services (such as voice mail or paging) they never ordered.

Slamming Slamming is the practice whereby long-distance phone companies switch your phone service to their company without your permission.

Advance Fee Loans Many companies offer empty promises for personal or business loans, and require payment of fees in advance. They never get you the loan and your fees are down the drain.

Sweepstakes Phoney prize awards that require payment of fees first - and then the "prizes" never appear.

Work-at-home scams These "business opportunities" include kits sold to stuff envelopes, make jewellery, or perform other work-at-home jobs, with false promises of huge profits.

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.
