Sirius, Hypertec call off merger

The proposed merger of modem maker Sirius Technologies and memory company Hypertec has been called off, the companies announced in a statement issued to the Australian Stock Exchange yesterday.

The merger, which had been announced on March 22 with the signing of a Share Subscription Agreement, was subject to a number of conditions. According to the statement the companies did not come to an agreement on some commercial arrangements and agreed to terminate the Share Subscription Agreement.

"The board of Sirius Technologies Limited has decided that it is more advantageous to provide a definite position on the transaction than delaying the process," the statement reads. "The company is then able to focus its energies on increasing sales and profit levels, to the undiluted shareholders, without the distraction of merger planning and implementation discussions."

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
