Optus will sell all three models of iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G connectivity — 16GB, 32GB and 64GB — on a range of two-year plans. Unlike Vodafone, Optus will not offer the iPad 2 on shorter, 12 month plans.

"By offering the iPad 2 on the Optus Open Network, we are giving Australians more reason than ever before to choose Optus this Christmas," said Optus' consumer marketing director, Gavin Williams. "Our great range of value plans, along with greater rewards such as our partnership with Qantas Frequent Flyer, give customers the freedom to enjoy all the game changing features the revolutionary iPad 2 has to offer."

Optus will sell the 16GB iPad 2 for $0 up front on $49 Optus tablet plan which includes 4GB of data per month. The same plan for the highest-capacity 64GB iPad 2 will cost an extra $10 per month (totalling $59 per month) over 24 months. Optus also offers $19, $29, $39, $59 and $79 tablet plans, with pricing varied depending on which iPad 2 model is purchased.

The iPad 2 is available at "selected Optus retail locations" and online through the Optus Web site.

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.
