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

Find a lost or stolen smartphone

Another great iCloud feature is Find My iPhone, which tracks your iOS and OS X devices, so you can find them on a map, send an alert (in case your phone is hidden under a blanket, for example) or message, and lock or wipe them if necessary. Just be sure you set the device so a thief can't turn off this feature. Again, Android can't join in.

But there's a comparable service called Lookout that lets you find, lock, or wipe a missing Android device from any browser. The basic version is free. However, be warned that it's easy for a thief to disable it if he or she notices it's installed.

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.
