The E3 fallout

E3 2008 Picks and Pans

Well, the E3 Media & Business Summit has wrapped up for another year and as always, some of the games we wanted to see were unveiled, but many weren't. Our gut feeling: The smaller, media-only event still doesn't feel quite right despite this year's return to its Los Angeles Convention Center roots.
A fleeting CGI trailer of God of War 3 was a perfect example of Sony's press conference: full of promises and plenty of "be patient" posturing. It lacked the one or two zingers Microsoft landed at its press event (even with the last-minute decision to postpone a major Halo-related Bungie announcement). Meanwhile, Nintendo impressed with Wii Sports Resort and Wii Music, though may have put off hardcore gamers in the process. Of course, a variety of other hot games also caught out our eye...

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.

Steph Mundell


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
