In pictures: What’s in the cards for Android 5.0?

Seven Google apps that hint at what Android 5.0 will look like

Google Now This intelligent assistant, which is incorporated into the Google Search engine in Android 4.1 and up, first introduced the card UI design philosophy. Google Now mines your Google user account activity and data to present a series of cards, each of which shows updated information relevant to you, such as event alerts, flight schedules, local weather, search history, and traffic reports. These cards are lined up in a column that you scroll through. You can read the information on a card, tap on it to see more details, or swipe it aside to get rid of it.

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.
