Quicken launches online trading in Oz

A new online investment and trading service has entered the Australian market with the launch of Quicken.com.au in Sydney yesterday.

The name is probably familiar to Australian PC users: it's brought to Australia by the same company -- Intuit Australia -- as Quicken financial software. The service is also running in the US, Germany, Canada and the UK.

More than just an online trader, said Quicken.com.au's managing director Dai-Kyu Kim, "it is designed to be a much richer service". Aside from stocks, users can also buy managed funds, he said, and the service "wraps" all of the user's investments into one simple interface.

A $49 charge for each transaction (up to $250,000) applies, in addition to account keeping fees.

Intuit has plans to tie its Quicken software to the Quicken.com.au service, most likely enabling users to download their investment and transaction information to their PC.

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.
