In Pictures: Google Chromecast brings Google into your living room

Google has announced the Google Chromecast, a small device that lets you stream online content and sync your phone, tablet or laptop with your TV.

Multitasking While content is playing on your TV, you can continue to use your mobile device as you normally would; the content continues streaming from the cloud even as you check email or do searches. You can build a Chromecast playlist on your mobile device while your video plays, and multitasking won’t disrupt the Chromecast since content is streaming from the cloud. (It won’t drain your battery, either.) In fact, Chromecast will even work when your phone or tablet is in sleep mode. When you wake your device up, you will be able to pause your content or skip to the next video without unlocking your “remote.”

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.
