Techworld Australia: HTC EVO 3D vs. Samsung Galaxy S 2

Detailed on a dedicated page on the Vodafone Web site, and announced through the Vodafone blog, the Galaxy S II has been made available for pre-order through the telco until 9 June "unless extended".

The pre sale page states that any pre-orders will be delivered "from the end of June", while Vodafone will provide a free Samsung genuine leather case with all orders before this date.

Vodafone will offer the Samsung Galaxy S II on a range of plans, starting at $0 on its $65 infinite plan over 24 months. The plan includes unlimited calls, SMS, MMS and video calls, along with 2GB of data and unlimited access to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, MySpace, and Foursquare services in Australia.

In addition to the $65 infinite plan, Vodafone will also sell the Galaxy S II for $10 per month on the $45 infinite plan (500MB data) and $0 on the $85 and $100 infinite plans, which include 3GB and 4GB of data, respectively. All infinite plans include unlimited calls, SMS, MMS and video calls within Australia. The Galaxy S II is also available on a range of standard Vodafone cap plans, including $0 on the $79 cap over 24 months. For all online orders, Vodafone will offer $50 credit that will be applied to your third bill.

Vodafone is the second telco to announce its pricing plans for the Galaxy S II, with Optus the first off the block. The Galaxy S II will also be available through Telstra in June, though pricing is yet to be announced. The device is a quad-band 3G smartphone, so it will work across all three network bands used in Australia, including Telstra's 850MHz Next G network.

Samsung officially launched the Galaxy S II in Australia last week, describing it as "the biggest mobile phone launch for Samsung this year."

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
