Telstra offers Mobile Foxtel on the iPhone

Access via other handsets to be made available soon

iPhone users will be the first to gain access to a new video streaming service running over Telstra’s NextG network.

With the service, Telstra customers can stream more than 30 Mobile FOXTEL channels to any OS 3.1 and above iPhone with improved viewing quality and stereo sound.

Freddie Jansen Van Nieuwenhuizen, director, Telstra Product Management, said the iPhone was the logical first-choice platform as users of the device were already accustomed to consuming a vast array of media on their devices.

Channels available on Mobile FOXTEL include FOX 8, FOX Sports News TV, Fashion TV and MTV.

Telstra already offers video-on-demand services available via its BigPond TV and BigPond Sports applications.

Users of other mobile devices will gain access to the new Mobile Foxtel service as Telstra rolls out a range of new Telstra NextG handsets over coming months.

Access to Mobile FOXTEL starts at $4 for a day pack up to $18 per month for the Mobile FOXTEL Ultimate Combo.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
