Now Red Bull gives your mobile wings

Energy drink company Red Bull has launched its new Red Bull Mobile network in Australia

Energy drink company Red Bull has officially launched its own mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), Red Bull Mobile, powered by the Vodafone 3G network.

Read our comprehensive reviews on Red Bull Mobile's first two smartphones, the HTC ChaCha and the HTC Salsa.

The new telco offers two smartphone handsets at launch: the HTC ChaCha and the HTC Salsa Android phones. Both of these Android smartphones have a dedicated Facebook button, which suggests the new MVNO is targeting the youth sector of the mobile market. Red Bull Mobile will sell handsets online through its Web site, or in EB Games retail stores across Australia.

The telco offers recharge periods from seven to 365 days and recharge amounts from $10 to $365. All up there are five recharges available: $10, $20, $39, $75 and $365, with 7, 15, 30, 60 and 365 day credit expiry, respectively. Every Red Bull Mobile recharge plan includes unlimited local and national calls, mobile calls, SMS and MMS messages to any Australian phone number, along with voicemail deposit and rerieval.

Data quota varies per recharge plan with the best value appearing to be the $39 recharge, which includes 4GB of data. The $365 recharge offers 5GB of data per month, while other included data quotas are 750MB ($10 plan) and 1.5GB ($20 plan).

In an attempt to attract new customers, Red Bull Mobile will also offer the chance to win tickets to Red Bull and partner events, as well as the opportunity to meet Red Bull sponsored athletes.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

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.
