Hema shows Thingstodo where to go

Popular with backpackers, four-wheel drivers and outback sports enthusiasts, Hema maps cover both Australian metropolitan and outback areas.

"Thingstodo will have the most comprehensive coverage of Australian outback maps on the World Wide Web," according to David Adams, Thingstodo's managing director.

The Hema Maps range of products covers National Parks in each state, books on motorbike and four-wheel drive destinations, an Australian Atlas on CD-ROM, as well as a number of books on Australian roads.

There is also a series of map books on specialist topics such as "Discover Australia Fishing" and "Discover Australia by Road".

"The business arrangement that we have with Hema includes an option to sell maps of countries around the world. As Thingstodo establishes its businesses across European cities, these products will also be offered through the online store," according to Adams.

Hema currently supplies maps of Great Britain, France, Germany, Portugal, the Philippines, Singapore, New Zealand, Fiji, Samoa, Papua New Guinea, amongst other Asian, Pacific and European nations.

Currently available from retail outlets such as service stations and bookstores in major Australian cities, Hema Maps' products are expected to be available on the Thingstodo site within the next three months, Adams said.

The arrangement will see Thingstodo receiving 40 per cent of the sale price of Hema Maps' products sold on its site.

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.
