AOL and AAPT finally stitch up deal

Under the deal, the joint venture will launch a new internet portal to deliver wireless content services and through exclusive rights will offer AOL and CompuServe services on both PC and mobile wireless platforms throughout Australia.

It is expected that AAPT's sales, marketing and distribution channels and network infrastructure will expand AOL's reach across Australia as well as contribute significant cost savings to AOL Australia.

The new organisation has, however, already seen its first casualty: AOL Australia's managing director, Carol Veriga, has stepped and will be replaced by Dr Brett Wayn while the joint venture finds a CEO.

According to officials, Veriga will remain with AOL Australia in the short term as a consultant while Wayn, currently director of AOL Australia content and programming, will move to the position of general manager to oversee the organisation's day-to-day operations.

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.
