The G1 vs. the iPhone

How the two 3G smartphones stack up against each other

Applications With the opening of its AppStore this summer, Apple for the first time opened up its iPhone to third-party applications. But while this new feature certainly gave users a wide selection of applications to choose from for their phones, Apple still retains control over which applications it will allow to be sold on its store. Google, meanwhile, will launch its own Android App Market on Oct. 22 and also have its share of fun applications that can be downloaded onto the G1 phone. While it's unclear what, if any, vetting mechanism Google is using for its Android store, third-party developers can always make their own Android applications and sell them on their own.

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.
