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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

Anthony Grifoni

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell

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.

Andrew Mitsi

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.

Simon Harriott

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.
