Yesterday Microsoft confirmed that Windows 8 will be fully released by the end of October, signalling when Windows 8 laptops, PCs and tablet will start hitting the market for consumers to buy.

HP is planning to launch a Windows 8 tablet, too, running on an x86 desktop chip. Samsung's tablet will use a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

Microsoft itself will release two tablets called Surface RT and Surface Pro. These will not only compete with other Windows 8 tablets but Apple's iPad and Android-based alternatives.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

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.
