Digital radio launch celebrated with outside broadcast

Broadcasters take part in a joint event broadcast to mark the launch of digital radio across Australia

Broadcasters and radio personalities from more than 40 different commercial and public radio stations participated in an outdoors broadcast this morning in the nation’s capital cities, to celebrate the launch of digital radio services in Australia.

In Sydney’s Martin Place, presenters from radio stations such as ABC Radio National, Triple J, Nova 96.9 and 2Day FM broadcast from booths lining the plaza from 5:30am. At 7:40am, all stations broadcast a program called Radio United: a segment of songs and landmark events of radio throughout the years. Similar events were held in Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.

Digital radio broadcasts currently cover metropolitan areas in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth. Originally planned for 1 July, the launch was pushed back due to ABC and SBS not being ready to contribute infrastructure or content.

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.
