Ready, set, go-anywhere shopping

The Commonwealth Bank has launched what it claims is the world's smallest, fully-integrated mobile Eftpos terminal.

MobileComm lets businesses accept card payment almost anywhere using the GSM digital mobile phone network.

It allows instant approval of credit and debit card transactions and the bank will initially focus on installing the technology in high transaction mobile businesses such as retailing.

MobileComm has a built-in thermal printer, magnetic stripe card reader, rechargeable internal battery and can be upgraded for smartcards. The device supports the newly released Ericsson T39, which is both GSM and GPRS capable.

The product has been launched in conjunction with Keycorp Ltd as part of the bank's plans in the wireless payment and mobile commerce market.

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.
