In pictures: Android Jelly Bean

A closer look at Google's latest version of Android, 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Google Now is the other key feature of Jelly Bean. It's best described as a contextual aware assistant. Swipe up and it will present you with a range of "cards" that present information. Above is the weather card, which automatically adjusts to your current location. There's also cards for traffic, flights, sports, appointments, places, transit, translation, currency, and time back home, though not all of them work in Australia just yet.

The service works with your Google search history to organise the information it provides to you. For example if you've just searched for pizza restaurants in North Sydney, the next time you open Google Now it will present you with a list of places. Google says the service will naturally improve over time as it learns your daily locations and habits.

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.
