N96 users to be offered free season of popular BBC shows

Nokia and BBC Worldwide have reached an agreement which will allow Australian N96 customers view an entire season of one of four classic BBC TV shows.

Australian consumers who purchase the Nokia N96 will be able to download full seasons of one of four of popular BBC TV shows for free.

Due to a landmark content deal between Nokia, and BBC Worldwide, N96 users will be able to download the first seasons of Walking With Dinosaurs, Little Britain, The Catherine Tate Show or Yes Minister.

The content must first be downloaded to a PC and synched to the Nokia via Windows Media Player, and will be DRM protected.

The N96 will be available from September 26 with an RRP of $1,349. It features a 2.8in screen and built-in 3D stereo speakers.

The BBC has made similar deals with Nokia for several South East Asian markets, including Singapore and Malaysia.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

Steph Mundell


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


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.
