Can someone please explain why there is such an exorbitant difference in prices between Australian and American released devices? I highly doubt the shipping and tax to Australia justifies a $700 price difference!

America - 32GB - $299
Australia - 32GB - $999



The $299 is paid upfront with a 2 year contract. In Australia you dont pay upfront for the phone, normally a $5 to $10 device repayment a month so over the course of the 2 years you pay $120 to $240 for it. I've lived in both places, Australia has it better off. The price to buy the phone outright in the USA wuold be similar to Aussie price listed above.

Guys don't worry, that's the price for the 5c if you want to but it now otherwise it will be extremely cheaper when it is officially launched



I love paying heaps of money for shiny new gadgets that do stuff. I makes me feel euphoric when I use them, and I can't wait to shell out my hard earned money for it, because then I will be able to do so much more useless things but extremely fast. I feel so energised and excited by this prospect, that I literally have turned into a potato. Sometimes when I'm on my thousand-dollar phone, I like to browse the internet and look at pictures and not pay full attention to my boss, because he is a sillypants.

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

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
