Elite bows out of Sol 6 merger

The companies announced this morning that the Elite board of directors has terminated the agreement in the light of advice from the US FTC's Bureau of Competition.

The FTC has advised Elite and Solution 6 that it will recommend that the Commission challenge the transaction, officials said.

"Although the parties disagree with the FTC's conclusions, they have decided not to prolong discussions further with the FTC in light of the Commission's continuing opposition to the transactions," officials said.

The decision comes as another blow to Solution 6, whose deals with Sausage Software and Telstra have taken similar turns.

"We are disappointed with the FTC's position and regret that the two companies were not able to join forces to bring continuing innovation to the professional services market," said Chris Tyler, Solution 6's CEO.

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.

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.
