Best online deals for mobile phones and mobile broadband

In the countdown to Christmas we take the hassle out of buying a mobile phone or mobile broadband service with our round-up of the best deals online!


Mobile phone: HTC Magic with Google smartphone
RRP: $899
Online deal: Free pre-paid mobile broadband starter kit (must activate by 31 December)

HTC's Magic with Google smartphone was the second Google Android mobile phone to be released in Australia. A significant improvement over the HTC Dream, the Magic benefits from Android's Cupcake software update and a far more pleasant design and interface. The lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack is disappointing but the Android Market has a range of mobile applications and the Android OS has massive potential.

Vodafone is currently offering the HTC Magic with Google free on a $59 cap over 24 months. This plan gives you $350 worth of talk and text as well as 500MB of data per month. Purchasers will also receive a free bonus mobile broadband starter kit from Vodafone. Valued at $99, the pre-paid starter kit includes 1GB of data as long as you activate the service before 31 December.

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.
