In pictures: 12 big BYOD predictions for 2014

If you were just getting comfortable with BYOD, brace yourself for new twists and turns. CIOs can expect more devices to enter the enterprise in consumer clothing, real security threats to emerge, new MDM options and much more in 2014.

Wearables Wreak Havoc Sparked by Google Glass and smartwatches, wearable gadgets have become a tour de force in the tech sector. They're not just for consumers, either. Forrester analyst J.P. Gownder predicts wearables will soon be taking the enterprise by storm, with the company-provided wearables market surpassing the consumer market within the next five years. It's quite possibly a BYOD wearables future.

Is IT ready? Hardly. "IT is just trying to catch a breath with BYOD smartphones," says Aberdeen's Andrew Borg. "I don't think they're even remotely prepared for wearables and other smart devices that are going to attempt to get on the corporate networks and access corporate files. This can loom as a big issue in 2014 and beyond."

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.

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.
