Skype opens online shop in Australia

Skype today announced that Australians can use its online shop

Skype today announced that Australian consumers can now use the Skype Online Shop.

The Skype Online Shop enables people to purchase a range of Skype-certified hardware that can be shipped directly to them. Users can also purchase Skype credit and Skype subscriptions through the store.

According to Skype, every item has passed Skype’s "quality and performance certification tests".

"We are excited to extend the Skype shop to Australia and make available to our users Skype Certified accessories which can enhance their user experience by broadening how and where they use Skype," said Dan Neary of Skype.

“This further illustrates our commitment to our users, providing them with a richer Skype experience and allowing them to continue their Skype conversations wherever they are.”

Users of the Skype Online Shop can also find the best deal and are able to shop from their preferred merchant. The Skype Online Shop stocks a range of products including wireless headsets, phones, webcams (such as the Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000), headphones and other accessories such as the Polycom Communicator speakerphone.

Skype has stated that more products will be added to the online store. Users of Skype's 4.0 client for Windows can access the online shop from within Skype itself by clicking on the "shop" tab; users of the Mac version of Skype are out of luck for now, however.

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.

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.
