In Pictures: 10 cool Bluetooth devices for your iPhone or Android

The smartphone is the new computer, and wireless peripherals are popping up everywhere

It's an odd thought: peripherals for your smartphone, which itself is often considered a peripheral to your computer. But as mobile devices become computing devices in their own right, a cornucopia of peripherals is emerging.

The power-efficient Bluetooth 4.0, also called Bluetooth Smart, has been supported by Apple's iPhones and iPads since 2011 and by more recent Android devices (which must run Android Jelly Bean 4.3 or later). It's fast becoming the way these peripherals connect.

You've no doubt seen Bluetooth headsets, heart monitors, fitness trackers, blood pressure monitors, and smart watches -- the usual suspects. But you've not likely seen the 10 peripherals showcased here. They show just how far the smartphone-centered Internet of things will go.

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.
