Sony Photo Go 1.0
- Intuitive and simple to use, easy-to-understand tutorials, you can e-mail photos directly from within the application
- Sony's online photo-processing service, ImageStation is setup for US customers only
Sony Photo Go 1.0 brings true ease of use to the image-editing and -organisation market. It's perfect for those who can't or don't want to get to grips with more complicated tools.
Sony has entered the digital-imaging software fray, putting its Photo Go 1.0 application up against titles such as Adobe Photoshop Album and Corel Photo Album. With this market so well catered for, Sony could be wasting its time. However, Photo Go has an ace up its sleeve - it's genuinely intuitive and simple to use.
If you need any high-end features then Photo Go isn't for you. If you don't know anything about photo management and editing, yet want to organise and touch up your photos, then this is perfect. It's replete with easy-to-understand tutorials that take you through every aspect of the software. Even if you've never used an image-editing program before, you will be up-to-speed and able to handle this package within minutes.
Photos can be instantly imported from a camera, memory card reader or folder on your PC - you're guided through each of these processes when the time comes. You can organise your photos by adding tags, a process which is easier here than in any other application we've seen. Alternatively, use the Views folders, which group images chronologically. If you wish, you can create custom Views.
Double clicking on a photo pulls up the editing space. Click on a menu item and all the relevant tools pop up, accompanied by simple instructions. Here, you will see previews of any changes made; undoing them is a matter of clicking a button.
The software walks you through sharing your photos, helping you to print them either on your own photo printer or via Sony's online photo-processing service, ImageStation. This was set up for US-only customers when we reviewed the software. You can also e-mail photos directly from within the application.

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.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
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.
