In Pictures: Tablets with serious security for business

These tablets have extra security features that will keep your work safe and your IT pros happy

Ice Cream Sandwich Advanced Security Features

Android Ice Cream Sandwich hides many new security features under its shiny exterior. The native email app supports EAS v14 and EAS certificate authentication, provides Allow/Block/Quarantine (ABQ) strings for device type and mode, and allows the disabling of automatic sync during roaming. Face Unlock turns your own face into your password.

Apps can store and retrieve private keys and their corresponding certificate chains for better credentials management via a new keychain API and encrypted storage.

A built-in VPN client provides access to L2TP and IPSec protocols. And a new VPN API and secure credential storage give applications access to configure addresses and routing rules, process outgoing and incoming packets and establish secure tunnels to a remote server.

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

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
