Have just signed up to Aldi still cheap but you have to pay for 365 days first $30 then pay unlimited plan monthly $35 as a bolt on. I emailed them thinking it was a mistake but they told me " Reply from Jess Halkett on 12/03/2013 14:36:27To be able to add an unlimited Bolt on you must first have Pay as you go credit on your account, which is the $15 or $30 recharge, this lasts 365 days. You will now need to add your unlimted bolt on. Thankyou."

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.
