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.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
