Unlike the iPhone 4 launch, where Telstra was the first to release its pricing plans, Australia's largest telco was more coy this time around. It waited until Optus and Vodafone released their iPhone 4S plans before unveiling its own.

The Telstra iPhone 4S plans seem very competitive. The hero offer is the 16GB iPhone 4S which is available for no extra monthly cost on Telstra's $79 Freedom Connect plan over 24 months.

All in all, the iPhone 4S is available on four Telstra plans — $59, $79, $99 and $129 with varying monthly handset repayments on top of the plan cost depending on the model and plan you choose. The top line 64GB iPhone 4S will cost an extra $13 on the $59 plan ($72 per month), $9 on the $79 plan ($88 per month), $5 on the $99 plan ($104 per month) and $5 on the $129 plan ($134).

Unlike both Optus and Vodafone, Telstra will not offer the iPhone 4S on 12 month plans.

Telstra will open its stores across Australia from 8am on Friday for consumers to purchase the iPhone 4S. The telco also says you can pre-order the phone on its Web site — though it currently shows a "register your interest page", Telstra says it will begin taking orders "later today".

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.
