Vodafone goes 3G

Vodafone Australia launched its 3G network earlier this week, offering six new mobile handsets as well as Vodafone Mobile connect - a mobile broadband service for PC and Macintosh notebooks.

The new Vodafone Live! Network is available in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra metropolitan areas and at airports in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth. Vodafone confirmed that the network will continue to expand in the coming months to include metropolitan Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, the New South Wales Central Coast and Queensland's Gold Coast.

As well as the famed video calling features, Vodafone Live! customers are able to access music tracks ($2.79 per track), live TV ($1.49 per 10 minutes), music videos ($2.49), 3D games and news and sports updates from their handset.

Customers can choose between six handsets: Nokia 6680, Samsung Z500, Sony Ericsson V800, Motorola V1050, Sony Ericsson V600 and the flagship Sharp 903, which is exclusive to the Vodafone network. The 903 includes a 3 megapixel camera with 24x digital zoom - highly impressive. Look out for a review here at the GoodGearGuide very soon.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
