Platforms: iOS, Android, Windows 8 (all free)

Evernote is the quintessential paperless app. It helps you get rid of unnecessary pieces of paper such as receipts, lists, and napkin-contracts. Take notes, make lists, photograph receipts, clip Web pages, and save pictures to your account using your tablet. Evernote syncs all this data across multiple devices for access anywhere. It even reads your handwriting and converts it to plain text. Pair it with a Livescribe smartpen to save paper notes to the cloud, and you can recycle the original notebook. Coming soon: Evernote is building intelligence into its apps so that it can recognize the types of documents you're storing there.

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.

Steph Mundell


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.
