Watch Apple’s Oct 16 launch event live

A new iPad is expected to take on Google’s upcoming Nexus tablet in the coming days

Apple is expected to announce new versions of its Mac computers and notebooks come 16 October, but the device that has people waiting with bated breath is the follow up to the company’s iPad Air.

The revamped iPad will have stiff competition from Google, if a Forbes report pans out. Word has it Google will finally take the wraps off its Nexus 9 tablet and Nexus 6 smartphone tomorrow morning, at about the same Apple will unveil the iPad Air 2.

Google isn’t holding a launch event, with the tech giant predicted to turn to its blog for the announcement.

Apple is hosting an event at the Town Hall auditorium located on its campus in California. The best part: Apple is streaming the event live, which means you’ll be able to watch the announcement as it happens.

Watch the Apple event here.

Fans who cannot get up at 4am can keep tabs on the Good Gear Guide site, which will be covering the event extensively as it happens, along with recaps of the new products.

Who knows, there might be another “one more thing” moment.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
