ACCC contemplates; Telstra, OzEmail wait

The ACCC is considering the anti-competitive impact of the $300 million acquisition which would see Australia's largest Internet service provider, Telstra, purchase the second largest.

Lin Enright, ACCC's PR director, would not verify reports this morning that indicated the watchdog was planning to reject the partnership.

The investigation is continuing with the ACCC still receiving information from market participants, she said.

Enright would not confirm if a formal statement on the matter would be released later today.

According to reports this morning, Telstra requested a decision from the ACCC by the end of today because its exclusive bid for OzEmail is due to expire this week.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
