Telstra and Nokia don't ring true

According to a news report published today, Telstra WAP product manager Mark Whitmore admitted that the carrier has been experiencing connectivity problems between its Wireless Application Protocol server and all Nokia 7110 WAP handsets.

The Nokia 7110 is Australia's highest-selling WAP-enabled mobile.

However, Telstra MobileNet and Nokia customer service operators told IDG yesterday there had been no operational problems reported with the telco's WAP venture.

It is not known how long Telstra has been aware of the interoperability problems, but the telco's estimated 4000 WAP customers have still not been notified of any faults.

The glitch is understood to be caused by interoperability problems between the externally manufactured browser within the Nokia 7110 handset and Telstra's WAP server.

Telstra is expected to send instructions to its WAP users via SMS text message to contact local phone resellers to get upgraded, compatible browser software.

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.
