In Pictures: iOS 6 arrives - its 16 key new features

Although the new OS for the iPad and iPhone is largely a collection of refinements, users will still want it

Manage your tickets in one app

The Passbook app is the most intriguing new capability in iOS 6, but also a big question mark. The app is meant to store tickets -- airline tickets, movie tickets, and more -- so you can use your iPhone to check in to all sorts of venues from the convenience of a single app that has them all. (Passbook is not available on the iPad or iPod Touch.)

That sounds great, but for Passbook to be useful, ticket issuers need to get on board, and it's unclear how many will do so and when they might. So far, the good news is that American, Delta, and United have committed, so other firms -- not just airlines -- are likely to follow.

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.

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.

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.
