In Pictures: 20 clever apps and services that make great use of the Cloud

Lots of mobile apps and Web services are available to help people who want all their digital content - not just documents - at their fingertips at any time. We look at 20 that are fun, useful, or both.

The Cloud Isn't Just for File Backups Anymore Think using the cloud is all about backing up files? Think again. File-storage services such as Dropbox and Box.net are likely the first cloud services that come to mind, but these days people are increasingly using cloud-based Web platforms and mobile apps for various purposes.

Just as Google Play Music automatically syncs your song collection across the cloud, your desktop, and your mobile devices, many other great apps and services can give you instant access to all sorts of things, including deals, files, news, photos, and more. Here's a look at 20 of the most interesting offerings.

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.
