N96 users to be offered free season of popular BBC shows

Nokia and BBC Worldwide have reached an agreement which will allow Australian N96 customers view an entire season of one of four classic BBC TV shows.

Australian consumers who purchase the Nokia N96 will be able to download full seasons of one of four of popular BBC TV shows for free.

Due to a landmark content deal between Nokia, and BBC Worldwide, N96 users will be able to download the first seasons of Walking With Dinosaurs, Little Britain, The Catherine Tate Show or Yes Minister.

The content must first be downloaded to a PC and synched to the Nokia via Windows Media Player, and will be DRM protected.

The N96 will be available from September 26 with an RRP of $1,349. It features a 2.8in screen and built-in 3D stereo speakers.

The BBC has made similar deals with Nokia for several South East Asian markets, including Singapore and Malaysia.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
