Time out for AOL and AAPT

In a statement to the Australian Stock Exchange, AAPT company secretary Anil Sharma said the discussions have not concluded.

"In particular," the statement read, "the pricing and timing of any transaction which might result from these discussions have not been finalised".

Last week, AOL said it would buy German media company Bertelsmann's 50 per cent stake in AOL Australia and AOL Europe in a stock deal believed to be worth between $6.5 billion and $8.25 billion.

Representatives from AAPT and AOL would not comment on the discussions.

AAPT shares closed at $9.00 this afternoon, up 9.5 cents for the day.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
