ninemsn launches online travel agency

Another online travel agency has entered the market with the launch of Getaway Travel (http://getaway.com.au), a co-production by the likes of ninemsn and the TV show Getaway, which is broadcast on the Nine Network.

Getaway Travel is one of several online travel agency sites launched this year in Australia -- Yahoo! Australia & NZ Travel (http://travel.yahoo.com.au) and itravel (http://www.itravel.com.au), being two others.

Visitors to the Getaway Travel site can make bookings online for airline tickets, car hire, hotel rooms and travel insurance. And customers may pay by credit card -- an encrypted link is used to protect the information during transmission.

Advice, travel tips, and destination information is also included on the site. The "Getaway Club" -- a weekly e-mail of travel deals is also available.

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.
