Dick Smith awards SIM-enabled tablet purchases with $30 Globalgig credit

Marketing campaign intended to increase brand awareness

Electronics retailer, Dick Smith, will be giving away $30 of Globalgig credit with any SIM-enabled tablet purchased between December 5, 2013, and January 31, 2014.

The Globalgig SIM start pack, which includes a free SIM card, can be used with any of the telecommunication provider’s domestic and international mobile broadband plans.

“This promotion will allow all new SIM-enabled tablet buyers to try Globalgig and realise how cheap and convenient our mobile broadband really is,” Globalgig channel sales and marketing manager, Matt Farmer, said in a statement.

The $30 credit and SIM card come with no lock-in contracts as the Globalgig service is prepaid, allowing customers to change plans each month or cancel their subscription with no penalty.

Globalgig offers 3G mobile broadband in Australia from $9 for 1GB per month, and from $19 per 1GB per month in selected countries internationally. This includes the US, UK, Austria, Denmark, Hong Kong, Italy, Portugal, Republic of Ireland, and Spain.

Any unused data allowance expires at the end of each month. As required by the Australian Communications and Media Authority, Globalgig will send SMS or email alerts to users once they reach the 50 per cent, 85 per cent, and 100 per cent mark of their data limit.

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.

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.

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.
