Netspace nets Netgear for ADSL modems

Netgear to supply high speed modems to ISP Netspace

ISP and telephony provider Netspace has inked an exclusive distribution deal with Netgear to supply ADSL/ADSL2/2+ modems for its consumer market.

Netspace spokesperson, Ben Dunscombe, said the company turned to Netgear because they were a leader in modem product suites and had been amongst the top sellers in the retail space.

He said discussions about a partnership had been brewing slowly for a couple of years, but were reinvigorated when Netgear approached them at the start of the year.

"We ship tens of thousands of units over the period of a year and it is vital for us to have the unit robust and reliable. In the absence of that, there is an inflated level of support calls".

Netgear has provided technical and customer service training to the 70 odd Netspace support staff to supplement their existing knowledge base concerning the Netgear modems, said Dunscombe.

The modems will be bundled with Netspace's internet services. Dunscombe said no introductory sales campaign was planned to accompany the new deal.

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.

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.
