Foxtel will be available on the Telstra T-Box by May 2011.

Foxtel will be available on the Telstra T-Box by May 2011.

Telstra and Foxtel have signed an agreement that will let Telstra T-Box users stream and watch 30 Foxtel digital TV channels for free, including popular channels like FOX8, Discovery, Movie One and Showtime Premiere. In addition, more than 300 movies and television programs will be made available to T-Box users through Foxtel's On Demand service.

Seven BigPond TV channels are already available on the Telstra T-Box, as well as HD quality BigPond Movies on demand. The T-Box competes with the Foxtel iQ and TiVo HD set top boxes. A Telstra BigPond broadband Internet connection is required to use the video streaming features of the T-Box. The new Foxtel service offered through the Telstra T-Box will only be available to customers in existing Foxtel metropolitan coverage zones.

This move is another channel of distribution for Foxtel, which has made its television service available to Microsoft Xbox 360 users, Telstra customers on a post-paid iPhone plan and to online-only subscribers.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
