Vodafone introduces Bold new business plans for smartphones

The company has drawn up new data and voice pricing schemes for upcoming smartphones such as the BlackBerry Bold and the Nokia E71.

Vodafone Australia has introduced a series of new business cap plans for the next-generation of smartphones such as the BlackBerry Bold.

Single user business plans will be available from $69 - $169 per month, giving between 360 and 1600 minutes of voice time, and from 50 to 200 free texts.

Each plan includes the choice of either unlimited domestic BlackBerry data use (capped at 50MB) or a fixed mobile data allocation. The $69 plan offers 250MB of data, and all others include 500MB.

Single user business cap customers will be eligible for free use of Vodafone's Mobile Office service, which gives advantages such as free calls between groups and free conference calls.

Shared business cap plans are available from $199 for 1-4 connections, to $4,499 to 1-100, but surcharges apply for use of the Mobile Office service.

Customers on either plan will be able to purchase additional data packs, ranging from 100MB for $11.95 to 2GB for $49.95.

In an effort to improve transparency, the previously separate flagfall charges have been incorporated into the main bill.

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.
