In Pictures: New Firefox mobile OS

Mozilla officially jumped into the crowded mobile OS field at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where the company demonstrated an early version of Firefox OS, which is being developed under the Boot to Gecko project.

3. Uses Gaia UI

Firefox OS features a UI code-named Gaia: Icons representing Web apps are pinned onto a home screen interface which you can swipe through horizontally. It includes a phone dialer. All of this is written in HTML5, including this dialer. Mozilla is designing its OS so that Gaia's essential tools will work offline without the need for a live Internet connection -- the HTML5 code for them would be cached onto the mobile device.

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.
