Yahoo enters Oz online auction market

A new entrant in the Australian online auction market has made its debut today with the launch of Yahoo! Australia & NZ Auctions (http://auctions.yahoo.com.au), a service that will be free to registered users.

With the new service users will be able to buy and sell a wide range of goods online, to local or global markets, according to Yahoo! Australia & NZ.

The site is the first of its type in Australia, launched ahead of the local eBay/PBL venture which is due to be launched later this year.

The site boasts more than 2000 categories, says Yahoo!, and has no commission or listing fees for users. Multiple quantity auctions are possible and the seller may nominate if the goods are auctioned locally and/or overseas. The seller can also nominate which currency bids may be made in, said Yahoo! in a statement.

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.
