Telstra's new 4G hotspot is designed for cars

Hotspot offers pre-paid mobile broadband

Telstra has released a 4G mobile broadband hotspot intended for use in cars.

The snappily named Telstra PrePaid 4GX Car Wi-Fi is a mobile broadband modem that can be plugged into a car's 12-volt outlet or USB slot.

You can also use an AC connector to plug into a standard power outlet.

The hotspot, which allows up to five devices to connect to it to simultaneously to share a 4G connection, is available for $79. It includes 3GB of mobile data (with a 30-day expiry).

More data can be purchased with Telstra's Pre-Paid Mobile Broadband Data Passes, which start at $10 for a three-day, 1GB pass. The top-tier pass includes 16GB of data with a two-year expiry for $140.

Telstra's CEO, Andy Penn, recently revealed the telco's plan to invest an additional $500 million in its mobile network.

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.
