Telstra scraps Easymail

Telstra is abandoning its Easymail service on March 13 leaving almost 70,000 customers to find new (and likely more expensive) means of accessing email.

Telstra spokesperson Stuart Gray said Easymail was "no longer commercially viable" for the telecommunications giant.

Easymail gave users basic email access at the cost of a local telephone call. According to Gray, most of its customers were home users and "fifty per cent of those users have an ISP anyhow".

This latest move by Telstra follows the recent overhaul of Big Pond Internet access plans. Now the cheapest plan Telstra offers for users simply wanting an email service is the Internet Light Plan, offering 2 hours a month of Internet access at a monthly fee of $5.95.

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.
