Free G Pad: Optus throws weight behind LG G3 flagship

Optus beats Telstra and Vodafone to the G3 with exclusive pre-order offer

Optus is rallying demand for LG’s G3 flagship by offering the first 100 customers who pre-order the smartphone a $399 G-Pad tablet for free.

LG’s flagship G3 is enroute for a local launch in the coming weeks, but telco Optus will be first to open preorders for the smartphone. Preorders commence from today (21 July) until its local launch on the 4 August.

The first 100 customers to place a preorder will receive the 8.9in G Pad free, along with a wireless charging dock, valued at $399 and $69 respectively.

Optus has priced the G3 at $5 per month on its $60 My Plan over 24 months. Alternatively the smartphone can be purchased for $696 outright on an Optus SIM-only plan.

LG’s G3 is the first smartphone in Australia to have a 1440p resolution screen and rear camera that uses a laser to autofocus. The 8.9in LG G Pad is a low-end tablet with a 1280x800 resolution screen and modest specifications to match.

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.
