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

Anthony Grifoni

Steph Mundell

Simon Harriott


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.
