A YouTube video posted on the EB Games Expo Web site has announced the first round of exhibitors on show at the EB Expo 2011, as well as official partners.
The EB Games Expo aims to bring an E3-style gaming exhibition to Australia, showcasing games and technology to Australian gamers. It will be held on Queensland's Gold Coast, at the Gold Coast Convention Centre. The Expo will follow the already-running EB Vendor Show, an industry-only event, but will open the doors to the public with stalls, live demonstrations and displays. With 26 exhibitors just announced and more additions possible, the 2011 EB Games Expo will be the largest gaming exhibition ever staged in Australia.
TLS — a creative producer and developer of the Save Point gaming television show.
Save Point — a brand new gaming television show on digital TV channel ONE.
2011 World Cyber Games — the recently re-invigorated Australian segment of the world's largest competitive gaming league.
According to the video, further partners will be announced soon. The EB Games Expo will be held on the Gold Coast on October 15 and 16. Tickets for the exhibition go on sale online and in EB Games stores on Thursday 2 June at 12PM AEST.
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.
