Just of late after a number of complaints to OPTUS about a 64KB/s download speed, I was told buy tech suport my line speed of the e169 was 256kbps,Well the line speed i was geting when i first perchast my modem and plan it was 1500kbps-190KB/s-250KB/s peak 3000kbps-320KB/s-450KB/s off peak Im very upset to see that the back throttling has gone this far as OPTUS has sold there product as an UNCAPED HSDPA 7.2MB modem and sim package.

the previous guy went through the hassle to explain the diferences. The wireless industry needs to use the diferent formats because of diferent wireless protocls that are not 8bytes in size. also lower k and upper K is used as well making you sound a little retarded :)

Making mention of 'b' and 'B' is interesting when the modem is doing 111.3 Kelvin bytes per second ...

'k' is for kilo and 'K' is for Kelvin.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
