Nokia Australia will provide a 24-month warranty on all mobile phones purchased on or after 31 March, the company announced today.

Previously offering a standard 12-month warranty, the new-24 month manufacturer's warranty applies to all Nokia phones sold in Australia including regular mobile phones, and smartphones.

"We're raising the standards in our handset service by offering a level of protection beyond the 12-month norm", said Nokia's managing director, Chris Carr. "It's of benefit to our consumers and reinforces the confidence we have in the quality of our products."

Although Nokia remains a clear market leader in the low-end of the mobile phone market, the once-dominant Finnish company has recently struggled to produce a high-end smartphone to rival Apple's iPhone and Google Android phones. The company announced last month that it would be dumping its Symbian platform and adopting Windows Phone 7 for future smartphone releases.

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.
