Apple’s Own iPad Apps (Beyond the Obvious)

Apple created a terrific set of business apps for the iPad, in the form of its iWork productivity suite. The three apps -- Pages, Numbers, and Keynote ($10 each) -- are fantastic renditions of their desktop siblings, and Apple put a lot of effort into making them touch-friendly. All the apps can read and export files from their respective Microsoft Office counterparts (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), and they're the best apps of their kind in the App Store due to Apple's attention to detail.

    You won't need to choose whether your app should be native or HTML5 as there're lots of cloud-based services which allow making a single app that's distributed to all major platforms such as iOS,Android and HTML5. I'm using Snappii service currently because they offer great features that can be implemented even without coding

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
