10 essential BlackBerry apps for travel

Stay organized, productive and in the know with this road warrior's tool kit for your BlackBerry

Urbanspoon

Urbanspoon.com is a comprehensive online restaurant review site that pulls together user-written reviews with information culled from blog posts, Twitter and professional reviews.

The free Urbanspoon BlackBerry app offers a gateway to that information, but with a twist: Instead of searching for particular restaurants, Urbanspoon presents a slot-machine-like suggestion engine.

Three wheels for geographic area, type of food and cost spin to present random combinations -- and a restaurant that fits those criteria. You can go for broke and spin all three, or you can "lock" each wheel independently, searching for, say, Indian restaurants in your area regardless of price, or any affordable restaurant in a specific part of whatever town you happen to be in.

It's a great way to find restaurants in new cities where you have nothing on which to base a decision -- and to rediscover familiar towns you've been to a hundred times.

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.
