Google to give Sydney demo of Android platform

Android to feature at Mobile Content World.

Google will offer a live demonstration of the free and open source Android mobile platform at the Mobile Content World conference in Sydney this Wednesday.

Developed by the Open Handset Alliance, Android is a complete set of software including an operating system, middleware, a user-friendly interface and applications.

Through its openness, Android is seeking to enable developers to create new and compelling mobile services that will become available to consumers faster than ever before.

Google's UK-based head of strategic partnership development, Nicholas Heller, will open Mobile Content World with the keynote talk "Fostering mobile content innovation through partnerships and alliances", during which Android will be demonstrated.

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.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

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.

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.
