Google today expanded its localised Australian services with the launch of Google Transit for Adelaide. It is the second Australian city to receive the service.

Google Transit compiles public transport information for major cities and overlays this information onto Google Maps. Users can access this information in order to get transit directions between two locations. The service has previously only been available locally in Perth.

The announcement was made through Google's official Australian blog.

Two weeks ago iPhone users gained access to Google Transit through the iPhone 2.2 Software Update. Google Transit's expansion will allow iPhone users to get transit directions for Adelaide through the phone's Maps application.

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.
