Absolutely pointless expensive device. Horrible to use compared with any android tablet or ipad. Heavy and a small screen. Absolutely no streaming media or extra content available through the T-Hub at all. It was included as part of our deal and after setting it up (requiring phone calls to support due to password not being accepted), now it's just a large ugly paperweight that is practically useless as a phone as well due to fairly average speaker phone/microphone. Honestly, steer clear.

The t-hub2 and t-box have been made for tech idiots. if you know nothing of tech, this device will amaze you. An over complicated, unreliable, non customisable piece of crap, endless problems with these pathetic products. Products constantly (every cpl days) fail and need to be fully reset and setup again. I have a fully compliant DLNA network, which these products is meant to be totally compatible with and all they do is screw around my network settings and then crash meaning i have to repair everything again. FAIL telstra FAIL, try testing your products before public release :(

Had the T-Hub and T-box combo for nearly 2 weeks,have already disconnected the t-box, too laggy and no channel 10. The t-hub still doesnt work! It wont accept my email addy with all server setting I could find online and without the help of the Phillipino lady that had no idea what she was doing!
This is the worst thing I've ever seen from these twits,hope someone has lost their job over it.
Anyone know the mailing address to send this rubbish back?

I have had the old t hub & found it very useful around the house to browse the net, check emails, go on you tube, make hands free calls. It performed well & is still use full for our son who uses it to make h/free calls & also uses headphones during calls.
The new t hub is great. I have connected the previous 2 handsets & the old t hub..not that hard to do, & think it offers all I need for a phone, browser & more. It is similar in the layout & operating system to my galaxy s3. I transferred my mobile contacts easily via Bluetooth & really enjoy the aps ie: games , Skype etc. For my family it's a great all rounder where I don't need to sit at my desktop for hrs on end.

We have the Thub 2 base & TBox connected through the broadband & TV. The problem is the landline is too far away to connnect it to the Thub 2 base so I can get the phone connection working. Any ideas other than paying a fortune to get another landline connection?? If I can get the phone working, this really is an excellent feature. Who needs ipad when you have this. I just wish they had the option to connect the landline to the handset base.

After using the new T-hub for over a week now I find it will have a place in the home, its is very fast with Android and has nott frozen once with playing any file, a far improvement on the first T-hub, well worth giving THIS model a go

After having T Hub 2 for a few days i cant find anything i don't like about it. I still have and use the original t hub and t hub 2 is a massive improvement and i would highly recommend it. Android is a big improvement over the original as you can add you own apps. You can add contacts by syncing with your gmail account. Excellent speaker phone and convenient to just pick up the tablet and surf the net. You couldn't ask for a better home phone. Telstra got this one right.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

Anthony Grifoni

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.

Andrew Mitsi

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.

Simon Harriott

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.
