Free Web-based voicemail hits Australia

Australian virtual fax service vFax yesterday officially launched its free voicemail service, offering users a single fax and voicemail phone number.vFax (http://www.vfax.com.au), allocates registered users with a free local phone number where faxes can be sent and voice messages recorded. The service then converts faxes into GIF files which can be viewed at a vFax URL, and converts voice messages into WAV files. vFax notifies the user of new faxes by e-mailing the URLs or in the case of voice messages, sending the WAV file as an attachment. Users can also check for any faxes or listen to voice messages by telephone, says vFax.

The service is completely free to users thanks to advertising sponsorship on the Web site and audio messages preceding voicemail. vFax has hinted it will add further services in the future such as Web-based e-mail and fee-based Internet faxing.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
