Quicken stirs competition in online broking

A new service launched by Quicken.com.au is hoping to snare current or potential users of the Commonwealth Bank's online stockbroking service, Commonwealth Securities.

Quicken.com.au has launched a "low-cost" online trading service called Quick.Broker, which matches the fees of Commonwealth Securities, also known as ComSec. ComSec charges a flat $29 for online trades of up to $10,000, or 0.3 per cent for online trades over $10,000.

Quicken.com.au says Quick.Broker will offer customers a range of transaction reports that are not offered by competitors, including detailed company profiles and information on upcoming floats.

The company's site (http://www.quicken.com.au) already provides live stock quotes and trading news free of charge, and since last year, has offered The Quicken Investment Centre, which is billed as a more sophisticated service offering "investment in managed funds at $49 per trade, portfolio reporting and consolidated tax statements", a statement from the company said.

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.
