In Pictures: iPhone to Android. How to make the switch

If the Galaxy S III or other smartphone tempts you, here's how you can still fit it in Apple's ecosystem

Syncing bookmarks and open URLs

Apple's Safari 6 in iOS, OS X, and Windows has a neat feature called iCloud Tabs that syncs the URLs of all open tabs to all other devices using Safari 6 tied to the same iCloud account. Bookmarks are also synced across these three OSes.

Again, there's no way to open up Safari's iCloud tabs and bookmark syncing to Android -- so don't use Safari. Google's Chrome browser has a similar sync capability, and it's available for Android, iOS, OS X, and Windows. (Firefox can also sync across platfiorms, but recently dropped its iOS sync app; it's not an option if you're using an iPad or other iOS device.)

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.
