Samsung Galaxy S III

After months of teasing, Samsung has finally released its Galaxy S III smartphone in Australia. The phone is available now online from Optus and Virgin Mobile, and will be sold in Vodafone retail stores from midday. Telstra will also carry the phone.

Don't buy the Samsung Galaxy S III outright - it's cheaper on a plan

Vodafone claimed to be selling the Galaxy S III online from 11AM, but its website does not yet show the phone.

Optus is selling the white Galaxy S III today on a variety of plans, but the Pebble Blue model can only be pre-ordered — with delivery expected within ten business days. The blue Galaxy S III has been delayed due to possible manufacturing issues.

Vodafone 'surprises' with Samsung Galaxy S III release today

Samsung has set the recommended retail price of the Galaxy S III at $899 for the 16GB model, which will be "available from all operators". No pricing information for the 32GB or 64GB models has been released yet.

Allphones is selling the 16GB Galaxy S III online, in stock now only in white, for $798. The phone will be available in Allphones stores for $825 from 3PM today.

Importer TopBuy is selling the Pebble Blue Galaxy S III outright for $699 plus $27.95 postage. The first batch, shipping on 2 June, has already sold out. The second batch will be dispatched around June 10.

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.

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.
