In Pictures: Customise your Android device with CyanogenMod 9

The recently released CyanogenMod 9 is built upon Android 4.0, codenamed Ice Cream Sandwich, and is free to download. Here are nine things to know about this latest edition.

Camera support varies

Because ICS has improved camera and video capabilities over previous Android versions, devices running it may need new graphics drivers. The majority of these drivers are closed source, and the makers of these devices usually won’t release them to third-party groups like the CyanogenMod community. Many of the devices officially supported by the CyanogenMod project do have camera functionality through CM9, whether through a driver provided by a device’s maker, or a technical work-around that coaxes the camera to work. But this explains why most ports of CM9 to devices built by people not officially working within the CyanogenMod community lack camera support.

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.
