In Pictures: What to expect from the world’s biggest mobile show – MWC 2013

Smartphones, smart chips, mobile browsers and augmented reality will be reality at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona

Opera’s next big step in browsing

Opera Software will demonstrate a new browser for Android smartphones at MWC, one that replaces its proprietary Presto rendering engine with the widely used open-source WebKit engine. The company will also be using code from the open-source Chromium browser project. Shown is the existing Opera Mobile 12 for Android, which runs the full browser on the device. WebKit will be phased into the entire Opera product line. A scoop by PocketLint last month says the new browser, codenamed Ice, will hide as much of the browser technology as possible, use gestures to control navigation and actions, and focus on rich applications.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
