Vodafone: Unlimited international calls, double data on prepaid

Vodafone has refreshed its prepaid caps with 10 countries eligible for unlimited international calls

Vodafone is offering unmetered international calls and double the data on select plans as it leverages its global network to compete in the Australian prepaid market.

The company’s revised $50 prepaid cap includes unmetered international calls to 10 countries, in addition to unmetered national voice calls and 3GB of Internet data allowance.

Offering “infinite” international voice calls to select countries will help Vodafone fend off competition from Voice-over IP (VoIP) applications that use people’s existing data allowance to make International calls, such as Skype and Viber.

Vodafone can offer unmetered international voice calls to select countries “because Vodafone is part of the world’s second largest mobile network,” said Mahul Dave, the managing director of Vodafone’s prepaid division.

The 10 countries covered by the $50 prepaid cap are: China, India, USA, UK, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong and South Korea.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
