The Globalgig SIM start pack, which includes a free SIM card, can be used with any of the telecommunication provider’s domestic and international mobile broadband plans.

“This promotion will allow all new SIM-enabled tablet buyers to try Globalgig and realise how cheap and convenient our mobile broadband really is,” Globalgig channel sales and marketing manager, Matt Farmer, said in a statement.

The $30 credit and SIM card come with no lock-in contracts as the Globalgig service is prepaid, allowing customers to change plans each month or cancel their subscription with no penalty.

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.
