Optus has announced it will offer naked DSL broadband, following the lead set by ISPs such as iiNet and Internode.

Naked DSL allows customers to have a broadband Internet connection without renting a traditional phone line. Previously, people looking for an Internet connection without phone line rental costs were forced to use cable or wireless broadband.

In addition to providing naked DSL, Optus is letting people bundle the service with a mobile service and save $10 per month.

Optus has also scratched the traditional 24-month contract period for certain plans and is offering them on a month-to-month basis — but this only applies to users who bundle the service with an Optus home phone.

“Naked broadband means customers can choose to have standalone broadband or they can bundle [it] with their mobile phone", said Optus' Michael Smith.

Until May 31 it will be possible to connect to Optus Naked DSL with a $0 set-up cost; 24-month contract plans start at $49.99 per month with an eligible Optus Post Paid mobile plan and 7GB data. Without a bundled mobile, the plan will cost $59.99 per month.

Optus also offers a 15GB plan for $69.99 per month and a 30GB plan for $109.99 per month. Both these plans are $10 cheaper if bundled with an eligible Optus mobile service on a 24-month contract or bundled with an Optus home phone on a month-to-month basis.

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.
