George Street flagship store to challenge Apple

None

Samsung has taken the wraps off its premier Sydney 'experience store', only a block from the glass-fronted Apple store on George Street.

The Samsung Experience Store occupies the space left empty by the old fcuk store at 450 George Street — part of the current Westfield shopping centre, and is situated next to the main entrance to the Myer department store.

The store is the technology company's first in Australia — it is playing catch-up with Apple, which is on track to open its 15th store in Carindale this weekend. The store has been under wraps since Samsung purchased the space in mid-June, with construction and internal fit-out continuing until yesterday.

Media were offered a preview of the store, which will open to the public from Thursday 23 August. Samsung also operates a store in Vancouver, Canada, which is its first in North America.

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.
