Telstra forecasts annual growth

Plan to cull 12,000 jobs by 2010 will continue

Telstra (ASX: TLS) is expecting a total revenue growth of around 3% a year up until 2010, according to Telstra CEO Sol Trujillo.

In a presentation to the Lehman Brothers Global TMT Conference, held in New York over may, Trujillo announced that Telstra was expecting a total revenue growth of 3-4 percent for this financial year. They are also projecting to maintain that growth up until 2010.

On the flip side, the 2005 plan to cull 12,000 jobs by 2010 will continue. By the end of last year nearly 8,000 jobs had already been lost, and Telstra plans to cut a further 4,000 in the next two years.

Trujillo also informed conference-goers that Telstra is currently the 12th largest telecommunications company in the world.

The company's revenue from fixed-line phones is in decline, whereas its revenue from mobile phones is growing by double digits.

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.
