Apple iPad: A hands-on tour in Pictures

Here's our up-close look at the features of Apple's new tablet.

PDF Viewer

Here is a PDF attachment to an e-mail, being previewed through the Mail application. Notice, in the upper right, the Open button; it's greyed out in this instance, but if you wanted to see, for instance, a Word document, an Excel spreadsheet, or a PowerPoint file, you could preview the file first and then click the Open button to open the document in Apple's new iWork for iPad apps (Pages, Numbers, or Keynote, respectively).

Apple demonstrators did not directly answer a query about how those apps would work if your document was stored in the cloud (for example, in Web-based e-mail or storage) but you wanted to edit the document on the iPad. Unfortunately, the unit has no logical file system, so you can't just save and open files as you would on a laptop.

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.
