Vodafone goes 3G

Vodafone Australia launched its 3G network earlier this week, offering six new mobile handsets as well as Vodafone Mobile connect - a mobile broadband service for PC and Macintosh notebooks.

The new Vodafone Live! Network is available in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra metropolitan areas and at airports in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth. Vodafone confirmed that the network will continue to expand in the coming months to include metropolitan Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, the New South Wales Central Coast and Queensland's Gold Coast.

As well as the famed video calling features, Vodafone Live! customers are able to access music tracks ($2.79 per track), live TV ($1.49 per 10 minutes), music videos ($2.49), 3D games and news and sports updates from their handset.

Customers can choose between six handsets: Nokia 6680, Samsung Z500, Sony Ericsson V800, Motorola V1050, Sony Ericsson V600 and the flagship Sharp 903, which is exclusive to the Vodafone network. The 903 includes a 3 megapixel camera with 24x digital zoom - highly impressive. Look out for a review here at the GoodGearGuide very soon.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
