LG Optimus 7Q smartphone (preview)

The LG Optimus 7Q is exclusive to Telstra, and is the only Windows Phone 7 smartphone at launch to feature a physical QWERTY keyboard.

LG's Optimus 7Q has almost the same specifications as the LG Optimus 7 with the exception of a smaller screen, and a physical, slide-out QWERTY keyboard — hence the Q in its name.

Exclusively available through Telstra, the LG Optimus 7Q offers almost the same features as the Optimus 7 — the smartphone is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and it has 16GB of internal memory and 512MB of RAM. However, it has a slightly smaller 3.5in display (the same size as the iPhone 4's screen) compared to the Optimus 7's 3.8in display.

Like all Windows Phone 7 devices, the Optimus 7Q lacks external storage, so there is no microSD card slot for extra memory.

The LG Optimus 7Q will be available on Telstra's first unlimited consumer cap plan from 21 October. The $129 cap plan includes unlimited standard national calls, SMS and MMS and 3GB of data.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

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.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

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.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

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.
