Interactive FIFA World Cup qualifiers come to Sydney

Sydney will play host to the world's largest football gaming tournament next month

Gamers and sports fans unite! Sydney’s Royal Easter show will launch one of 10 worldwide qualifying events for the 2010 Interactive FIFA World Cup.

Kicking-off (virtually, of course) on 1 April and running to 14 April, the FIFA, EA SPORTS, and PlayStation sponsored event will see football and gaming fanatics try their hand at representing Australia in the Grand Final. Sixty four finalists will be whittled down to one winner who will compete in Barcelona on 1 May.

A free trip to Spain is not all that is on offer for the Australian qualifier. If they work their way through Barcelona to become the interactive champion of the world, a cheque of US$20,000 will be sent their way, along with an invitation to attend the FIFA World Player Gala.

There a number of spots still available before the heats begin; so for those of you who think you can take a virtual 45-yard free kick better than Cristiano Ronaldo, register at www.FIFA.EASPORTS.com/footballexperience. If that sounds like too much work, there will be a few walk-up positions available on the day.

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.
